Brexit boosts domestic sales opportunities for plastics recycler Axion

United Kingdom: UK recycling specialist Axion has marked its 15th anniversary with a series of celebratory events for its 92-strong workforce across its three Manchester sites.

The firm has rebranded with the tagline ‘working towards a world where nothing goes to waste’ and launched a new website at Founding directors Keith Freegard and Roger Morton gave talks on the company’s progress and presented awards to a number of long-serving employees at the Bramhall, Salford and Old Trafford facilities.

Freegard highlighted how new sales opportunities for their recycled polymers were emerging owing to the uncertainty surrounding the Brexit process. This has been ‘driving local Made-in-GB sourcing behaviour’, he stated. According to Freegard, there is an increasing circular economy influence on product design and material supply chains as designers and manufacturers recognise the importance of protecting and making better use of our finite resources.

‘Changing attitudes towards waste are having a positive impact both on what we do and can deliver for our clients,’ he said. ‘The future’s bright.’

Axion develops and operates innovative resource recovery and processing solutions for recycling waste materials. It works with a wide range of clients - from government agencies and local authorities to companies in diverse commercial sectors - on the development of new processing and collection methods to recover value from waste resources.
