OSO Polymers has agreed a 10-year lease on a property in Leeds. Work is now underway on the site, which will also serve as the company’s new headquarters.
The 87,000 sq ft (8,000m2) plant is located on the Copperworks 2 estate in Leeds. The site will benefit from a newly-refurbished plastics plant which will sort and reprocess waste plastics into general purpose resins and engineering polymers.
Speaking about the new plant, Tong Shen, director at OSO Polymers, said: “We are very pleased to set up our first UK plastic recycling facility in this extensively refurbished premises, on a well-established historical industrial location within Leeds area. I am confident the site and the extremely supportive team will meet our business needs well into the future, as OSO continues to grow.”
Ground-level loading bays will support the transformation of plastic waste into granules for use in various processes, including extrusion and moulding.
This aligns with Leeds City Council, which is looking to increase plastics recycling volumes in the region.
