DESIGN & INNOVATION

As part of our ongoing development process last year we invested £500k in a super energy efficient EPS block moulder, this has allowed us to achieve the best possible quality and consistency in our blocks and giving additional capacity and product flexability.

The integrated recycling unit consumes up any production off cuts and customer waste improving the industry’s “Green” credentials. This EPS is granulated and stored for inclusion market and customer appropriate products.
