When your production is all about sustainability, then it must also be visible from the outside. With that in mind at the end of 2018 Tyne Moulds & Machinery had solar panels installed on the roof of their factory, now creating their own electricity.

Small changes make a big difference
Tyne Moulds & Machinery is a manufacturer and designer of labels and all kinds of plastic products for growers, florists and garden centers. They sell via a worldwide wholesale network. “We do everything from the designing of products, the tool making, the manufacturing, the shipment and now even create our own electricity”, says International Sales and Marketing Manager James Sword.
By investing in solar panels for our factory roofing, we further show our commitment to ethical trading and manufacturing our products for worldwide distribution. We have found these factors to be a powerful selling tool for our customers to use when selling to their customers. Small changes make a big difference and this is something we are always looking to build on as a business.”

Recycled consumer plastics
Tyne Moulds has been making all their products from 90 % recycled consumer plastics for over ten years. “We offer our products in an array of colors, particularly the dark greens and blacks. These lend themselves perfectly to recycled consumer plastics as these are normally made of dark colors”, says Sword.
“We buy from recycle processor plants that supplier us direct with the granulated plastic. This way of buying plastic from trade has been readily available on the market for a number of years. We feel with plastic waste being such a hot topic in the media we can lead by example and show others that small changes can make a big difference to the environment and the business.”
Tyne Moulds will again be exhibiting at this year’s IPM show in Essen, Germany, as part of the British Pavilion. You can find them in Hall 7 Booth B24a.
