    100% Fully Recyclable

    Polypropylene is a member of the polyolefin family - the easiest plastics to recycle - and the material can be simply granulated and reprocessed. 100% of the material is recoverable and re-usable.

  • Polypropylene based returnable packaging is 100% recyclable, fibre-free and water resistant helping prolonged use.

Grimsby innovation is likely to lead to more jobs

Published 19/09/2011

Global attention brought to Grimsby innovation is likely to lead to more jobs after high levels of interest were shown in a company’s new techniques.

Fish packaging specialist Tri-Pack flung open the doors of the recently expanded production facility in South Humberside Industrial Estate, showing the world it could make the supply chain more efficient, while increasing business on the home front.

As reported last month, about £750,000 has been invested on the plant, with much of it geared towards a system where boxes are part-produced in Europe’s Food Town, then sent flat to fishing communities around the world, where finishing equipment will be installed to complete the job, making massive long-term transport savings.

It has built on a fresh produce model, and has involved technical modifications to the CoolSeal box that managing director Stephen Clarke has developed from scratch to serve the seafood sector.

Having worked in partnership with the machine developers, Mr Clarke was keen for his customers to see exactly what could be achieved.

He said:

“It has been great for us. What we have managed to do is demonstrate to people from Russia, The Faroes, Iceland, Norway, America and Canada that we can do exactly what we said we can. They have been absolutely absorbed by what we do. Each machine we sell will lead to a Grimsby job. The interest has been tremendous. We have now got sample deliveries going all over the place, and if successful, which I know they are going to be, they will lead to orders for machinery. I think I will sell at least ten as a result of what we have done. The ricochet effect of that, once they are up and running, will be enormous.”

The footprint of the plant on Estate Road One has been boosted as the production area was transformed to increase capacity. Guests were treated to a lofty view of the operations from a VIP mezzanine created especially for the week.

“It really has been a fantastic opportunity to show what we are doing and what we have done. We are talking about some huge savings when it comes to distribution. We are talking about doubling the number of boxes we can move around and for many of our clients these can be long distances. I wanted to show the concept does work. We have done that, and underlined the recyclable nature of the product, too. “

Encouragingly, larger corporate businesses have shown strong interest, well aware of the supermarkets’ drive to remove excess packaging and cut down on carbon footprints when it comes to food miles.”
