Disposables UK completes move to new Meltham site

Yorkshire company, Disposables UK Group, has reached another milestone in its ambitious five year growth plan by completing its move to a new 150,000 sq ft state-of-the-art premises in Meltham.

The company, which manufactures and distributes paper disposables and associated cleaning and hygiene products for the ‘away from home market’, was previously based across four sites totalling 107,000 sq ft.

The strategic move to larger premises allows Disposables UK to consolidate its operations and provide a faster turnaround time on producing goods.

The relocation, which cost in the region of £700,000, is part of Disposables UK’s five year growth plan to almost double its current £16m turnover to £30m by 2018.

One of the largest employers in Meltham, the company has also recently invested £1.7m in new machinery.

Commenting on the move, David Burkill, managing director of Disposables UK, said: “We are delighted to finally open the doors to our brand new site and to celebrate another milestone in our history. Manufacturing is at the heart of our business and this move has not only allowed us to streamline our processes, but reinvest in our machinery, systems and people.

“We have been operating in the region for 26 years now so staying local was extremely important to us. We have 100 staff and by staying in Meltham we are helping to safeguard their jobs.”

The new site, originally built in the early 1970s for David Brown tractors, and most recently used to manufacture yarn by Fred Lawton & Sons, has undergone a total refurbishment with an emphasis on the company’s ethos of sustainability and the environment.
