Veka Recycling Begins Production At New Wellingborough HQ
Veka Recycling, a leading recycler of PVC-U post consumer window profiles, has begun full production at the company’s brand new headquarters. From acquisition in February of the 5.5 acre site on the town’s Finedon Road Industrial Estate and after undergoing a substantial refurbishment, rebuilding work and industrial fit out, the facility is now converting full loads of virgin, post consumer and industrial profiles into high quality PVC-U compound.
Further investment and development during the next 12 months will further extend the capabilities and capacity of the plant, to become Europe’s most advanced specialist windows recycler.
“We are very pleased with the progress we have made at our new site,” said MD Simon Scholes, who has managed the project throughout.
“It took many years to find what is the perfect site for our requirements but we are on schedule to build a facility that will be totally self-sufficient and capable of recycling in excess of 25,000 tonnes per annum.”
Current capability allows the plant to accept previously installed frames as well as virgin offcuts, reduce them and then transfer component materials for further reduction and separation. PVC-U is then further processed and returned to market for re-manufacture. New products produced using recycled compounds include new window profiles, cills and trims as well as products as diverse as electrical conduit and construction components.
“The group made the commitment to invest more than £8 million at Wellingborough after the Brexit vote was known and is fully committed to the UK market, irrespective of the status of the UK relating to Europe,” explained Simon. “There is very real belief in and commitment to both the concept of recycling and to the UK window and door market,” he added.
