7th May 2013, Leicester, UK – FORMAX, a leading global
manufacturer of speciality composite reinforcements, has launched a new
recycling initiative at its UK production facility. Thanks to the
creation of a dedicated Recycling Division and the installation of two
bespoke machines, FORMAX is now able to reprocess the majority of its
glass and carbon fibre waste.
The recycled materials are suitable for a variety of non-structural and structural applications across a range of industries, and a number of FORMAX’s customers are already manufacturing components using products from the division with great success.
“Last year we generated over 600 tonnes of glass waste so recycling is clearly very high on our agenda, both from a position of environmental responsibility, but also from a commercial standpoint. The market for recycled materials is a growing sector with a number of significant opportunities and the creation of our new Recycling Division allows us to devote considerable time and resource into optimizing products for these processes” comments Oliver Wessely, Managing Director of FORMAX.
