VEKA Compounds Gives Old Frames a New Life

Recycled PVC-U processor VEKA Compounds has launched a stunning new video that shows how its state-of-the-art recycling processing facility is playing its part in transforming end-of-life PVC-U frames into brand new windows and doors.

The Wellingborough plant, which was completed at the end of 2020 after a two-year build at the cost of £15 million, is reputed to be the most sophisticated of its type anywhere in Europe.

The 2-minute video is compelling and beautifully shot, with jarring images of waste being ground-filled, followed by sweeping views of a VEKA Compounds delivery tanker wending its way through the countryside laden with tonnes of re-processed PVC-U pellet. Adding impact to the striking imagery are the mountains of frames at the five-and-a-half-acre site being fed into the plant, with dramatic shots of the various stages of processing.

We are immensely proud of what we have built here,” said VEKA Compounds Managing Director Simon Scholes. “After our plans to show people around were severely curtailed by Covid, we decided to make this video to ensure we can show the importance of recycling old PVC-U window and door frames and how efficient our new plant is at doing so.

Simon added: “The purpose of the video is to convey the extent of the investment that we have made at VEKA Compounds. As much as it shows off our systems and processes, I hope it also conveys something about our commitment to quality and especially to raising standards for product and service generally in the PVC-U recycling sector.”
