Hahn Plastics, a European manufacturer of recycled products made from mixed plastic waste, has announced its significant investment plans in the UK.
Hahn’s recycled plastic products are widely used in the construction, industrial and agricultural markets across Europe for their stronger performance and environmental benefits over traditional materials such as wood and concrete.
The German-based parent company, Hahn Kunststoffe GmbH, has invested in a 45,000 square foot state-of-the-art production and warehousing facility at Salford, Manchester. The UK operation will engage in stocking, distributing and manufacturing an extensive range of Hahn’s patented recycled plastic products for agriculture, industry and construction.
Hahn states this commitment will enable UK customers to enjoy better access to the extensive range of 1,500 product lines in more colourways with better stock availability, quicker delivery and great after sales service from a local work force. In addition to the existing ‘Hanit’ family, the UK operation will offer an added high-spec formulation, ‘Hanplex’, which is appropriate where applications require a more robust material.
Hahn’s UK Sales and Marketing Director, Paul Harris, commented: “As the demands towards sustainable materials in construction go from strength to strength, the local investment in stock, production facilities, and jobs here mean that we are best placed to serve today’s market demands and continue innovating the next generation of construction materials. The huge range of standard products available from stock means that there is a real alternative to the use of traditional materials in many applications.”
MD, Stephan Seibel, added: “Hahn Kunstoffe GmbH is delighted to be investing in the UK, following export sales success to date. We have experienced great demand in the UK market in recent years, from all sectors of industry and agriculture. We hope to underpin our commitment in the market by providing a greater level of service by local stock holding and manufacture.”
