RPC Group acquisitions have been awarded a place on Frameworks
RPC bpi recycled products and ESE World UK, both recently acquired by RPC Group, have been awarded places on Frameworks with Braintree District Council for its Refuse Supplies Framework PROC17-0110 and the ESPO (Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation) Framework 860_18 Refuse and Recycling Products.
The companies are leaders in their respective fields and jointly offer customers a large selection of high-quality products and services - RPC bpi recycled products is the leading manufacture of refuse sacks and ESE World is the leader in providing temporary storage solutions for waste and recyclable materials.
As Lorcan Mekitarian, sales director at RPC bpi recycled products says: "Working together with ESE World is the perfect match as we share the same waste management customers and offer the same benefits such as: providing tailor-made solutions, innovative and bespoke products and excellent customer service.
"Due to our green credentials we can help our customers achieve their sustainability goals too."
Dave Hughes, managing director of ESE World UK says: "Both bpi and ourselves have an unparalleled range of products to meet the requirements of our customers, whilst offering the environmental benefits of a circular economy and whole life cost advantages of using recycled material. We share the same passion to supply our customers with best in class waste containment solutions."
Both Braintree District Council and the ESPO frameworks will benefit from RPC bpi recycled products' recycled and compostable sacks from The Green Sack range. All RPC bpi recycled products have the necessary Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association technical accreditations to certify all the products meet the highest industry technical standards.
ESE World containers are manufactured to the strictest European standards and are fully compliant with the enhanced quality standard RAL GZ 951/1. ESE World also gives its customers the security of sustainable procurement due to its Blue Angel eco label certification. To gain this independent accreditation a product must be made of materials harmless to humans, animals and the environment and use a minimum of 80% post-consumer recycled plastic.
Container sizes range from 80 litres to 370 litre capacity in two wheel and 500 litre to 1,100 litre in 4 wheel containers, with a range of lid and customised options available in all sizes.
RPC bpi recycled products operates four UK sites and is part of British Polythene which was purchased in August 2016 by RPC Group - a plastic products design and engineering company with over 180 operations across 33 countries and employing over 20,000 people.
The polythene used to make the company's award winning Green Sack range of refuse sacks is made from recycled British farm waste plastics. The finished product has a carbon footprint that is estimated to be at least 35% less than any other refuse sack in the UK. Already the most tear-resistant option on the market, the latest version - Green Sack Fusion - has been made even stronger by combining triple layer extrusion technology with a new core layer formulation made from super strength waste polythene.
RPC bpi recycled products is accredited to ISO: 14001, ISO: 9001:2008, and OHSAS: 18001.
