VEKA Recycling is thrilled to have been shortlisted as a finalist in the category ‘Best Sustainability Initiative’ of the G Awards. It comes just days after the company was also named as a finalist in the National Recycling Awards for ‘Recycling Facility of the Year.’
Since 2004, the G Awards have celebrated and rewarded excellence in the UK glass and glazing industry. The winners of the G Awards will be announced at a gala dinner on Friday, November 26, at the London Hilton on Park Lane.
A finalist in the category Best Sustainability Initiative, VEKA Recycling has been credited for the completion of its £15 million state-of-the-art recycling facility in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. VEKA Recycling’s Simon Scholes managed the project from conception to its completion after a two-year build. He said:
“This is very exciting news. Our team has worked incredibly hard to bring this complex project to completion, especially with the challenges posed by Covid-19. But we did it, and we are delighted that we have reached the finals of these two awards.”
The VEKA Recycling facility is said to be the most advanced of its type in Europe, combining the latest technology to produce recycled PVC-U pellets of consistently high quality that rivals virgin material. Used extensively for manufacturing products for the electrical and construction industries, the pellet produced by VEKA Recycling at the Wellingborough plant is increasingly used to extrude new window and door profiles.
Simon also congratulated its sister company within the VEKA Group, the Burnley-based systems company VEKA PLC, for also reaching the G Awards, including one in the Best Sustainability Initiative category: “Whilst we are run as separate businesses, the ethos of the VEKA Group runs throughout all of our companies. The awards evening will be an exciting one, that’s for sure!”
