National sustainability winner

Eurocell has been named as the national winner of the sustainability category at the Future Manufacturing Awards.

The award was presented to Eurocell for its commitment to improving overall environmental performance and enhancing sustainability.

Over the past decade, Eurocell has invested about £10 million in its recycling facility, Eurocell Recycle, which has enabled Eurocell to increase capacity within the recycling plant to expand the range of products that can be manufactured using recycled material.

Eurocell has prevented over 61,500 tonnes of end-of-life PVCU ending in landfill and, in 2018 alone, it recycled in excess of 1.2 million frames.

Chris Coxon, head of marketing at Eurocell, said: “We are proud to be playing our part in improving the sector’s sustainability record and recognition such as this gives us even more motivation to continue our efforts in 2019 and beyond.”

The judges also recognised that Eurocell had provided recycling jobs to 110 people in the local area, including two apprentices, as a result of its continued dedication to reducing PVCU waste in the construction industry.
