Belgrade Polymer Products is stepping up production of its plastic pail liners in 2018 following a rise in orders from a long-standing European customer.
The Wellingborough-based thermoforming specialist says Brexit and the weaker pound is helping to grow its export business and open up new sales opportunities, particularly for their added-value concept.
Sales of the liners are set to rise further this year. The polypropylene (PP) and LDPE pail liners are used to protect a variety of goods, from chemicals and cosmetics, to food and pharmaceutical products.
“From January, our customer is looking to place orders for 30,000-plus liners per month as they look to consolidate their purchases through one source,” comments Belgrade’s General Manager Patrick Burke.
“As a consequence, we have agreed to support them in their home markets across the continent, so they are now our official distributor in mainland Europe. They are very happy with the quality of our products and service and the fact that we are responsive to their needs,” continues Patrick.
Belgrade has developed two new bespoke liner variants for their customer and is planning further investment in plant and personnel to keep up with demand and increase its production flexibility.
Patrick adds: “We pride ourselves on providing a customised service and maintaining the highest product specifications tailored to our customers’ specific requirements. So far, we’ve had a very busy start to 2018. Brexit may be stalling, but trade isn’t!”
