Centriforce Products Limited
Centriforce, the UK`s largest independent producer of recycled plastic products, including plastic sheet, and plastic profiles. Established over 35 years ago, Centriforce Products Ltd were pioneers of UK based plastic recycling. Since then we have grown to become the UK`s largest independent recycler of plastic waste, using the material to create sustainable products. Our core business is making high quality recycled products from plastic scrap such as plastic bottles, carrier bags, film and packaging. This is discarded material that would otherwise be sent to landfill or export. We are the manufacturer of some of the leading brands in the recycled plastics market. Our sheet product, Stokbord, is the most popular recycled plastic board available; its versatility, durability and sustainability means that Stokbord finds wide use across a range of markets.
Our Stokbord cable protection covers and Tapetile cable protection rolls have replaced concrete as the industry standard in the UK utilities market. Demand for these products is fuelling our growth in export markets in Europe and the Middle East.
We operate from a six-acre plastic recycling plant in Liverpool, where we can process over 20,000 tonnes of material per annum. We pride ourselves on our innovative approach to recycled plastic product development, working with customers and others to devise new applications for our polymers. The products are designed to address market challenges and reduce reliance on non-renewable materials. Our 'closed loop' recycling solutions are helping household names, such as Waitrose, TNT and HMRC, to manage their waste plastic more effectively, in a responsible and sustainable way.
Centriforce Products originally started as Chisholm Plastics in 1976 and was an early pioneer in the use of recycled plastics. We now have over 35 years of experience in developing and producing recycled plastics for the UK and international markets. Some key events are highlighted in the timeline below.
