Health & Safety Engineering Ltd
A large UK company, which manufactures paper cups, plastic cups and lids, and fresh food and oven trays for the food industry, had consolidated its production onto one site.
The Filter Company was closely involved in supplying a turnkey solution to the problem of handling the granulated waste plastic produced during the moulding process and returning it to the storage silos so that it can be re-used.
