Through their patented technology they have been able to turn plastic waste, which in certain instances would have to go to landfill, into a solid rigid board utilising Rechip patented technology.
The founders of this business have over 20 years' experience in building up a successful commercial property portfolio and over two decades of experience in designing and manufacturing plastic related manufacturing facilities.
Having spent time looking at the various flood defences available, they were disappointed with the solutions on offer and equally disappointed with a system that was subsequently installed at one of their commercial properties.
They set about developing their own system incorporating the recycled plastic panel and have now launched Rechip Flood Defence which has many benefits including:
• Rechip panels, made from yoghurt pots, WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment) and car bumpers amongst other waste plastic. For eample - 660 plastic bottles (500 ml) make one Rechip panel.
• Strong, durable, waterproof.
• Speedy simple installation with no tools required.
• Extremely price competitive.
The business is based in Bury, North Manchester, where the product is manufactured.
