Black Country firm invests £150,000 in UK's most secure destruction facility
11:09am Thursday 7th February 2013 in Local
A DUDLEY company has invested over £150,000 to create one of the UK’s most secure destruction and recycling facilities.
Recycled UK Ltd unveiled its specialist bonded warehouse that includes twelve position picking stations, automated shredder and a baling machine.
Measuring 14,500 sq ft, the unit is equipped with state-of-the-art CCTV systems so that customers can log in and watch their products being destroyed.
This is the latest in a series of investments by the thriving firm that will see turnover nearly double to £2m by the end of the year.
Paul Green, managing director, said: “The bonded facility will look after the secure destruction of CDs, DVDs and, thanks to our new vision imaging software, x-rays for the healthcare sector.
“These have all been major growth areas for our business and this dedicated facility will give us the capacity to take on new clients, including EMI, local police forces and customs and excise.”
He added: “It’s all about providing total peace of mind. From the minute the product arrives at Coseley in one of our trucks, we log it then track it throughout the disposal phases. The client even gets a record of its destruction – better still all of this is free of charge.”
The Black Country firm has joined forces with Worcester-based Industrial Material Recycling to create bespoke vision imaging software that could save NHS Healthcare Trusts hundreds of thousands of pounds every year.
Mr Green said: “The savings we can provide are eye-watering. We’ve just completed one job for a NHS Trust that has saved them in excess of £1m.
“With the emphasis on reducing spending in the medical sector, we offer a service that is proving too good to turn down.”
