Established in 1909 Buoyant Upholstery who are based in Nelson Lancashire are one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of chairs and sofas and with an impressive 332,000 sq ft of factory space Buoyant Upholstery inevitably generate large volumes of a variety of waste streams on a daily basis.
Buoyant Upholstery’s Andy Burnett comments “Due to the nature of our manufacturing processes and the thousands of suites we manufacture every year it’s inevitable we’ll generate huge volumes of waste. We’re also members of the BFM (British Furniture Manufacturers) so the segregation and recycling of all our waste streams is paramount to Buoyant Upholstery.
We’d heard about the effectiveness of how a Bergmann Jumbo Roll Packer could compact our wood waste and contacted Kenburn with a view to installing a machine just for our wood skip. We were so impressed with the compaction ratio of the roll packer for our wood waste, we immediately purchased another roll packer for our general waste skip. Not only have the roll packers significantly reduced our transport costs, they’ve also reduced the frequency we need the skip collection vehicles on our site as well as a reduction in admin processing.”
Kenburn’s Simon Wells adds “Kenburn has been supplying Bergmann compactors for more than 25 years and our expertise and experience enables us to specify the correct compactor for whatever waste streams require reducing in volume. The Roll Packer especially can reduce transportation costs by up to 80%. We offer free of charge no obligation waste surveys and analysis to determine what financial and environmental benefits there could be by installing a waste compactor manufactured by Bergmann.”
