Axion Polymers wins National Recycling Award

  • 5 Jul 2019

Axion Polymers has won a 2019 National Recycling Award in the ‘Team of the Year – Commercial’ category, thanks to its circular approach to serving clients’ needs for recycled polymers.

The Manchester-based plastics recycler’s knowledgeable team was praised by the National Recycling Awards judges for collaboration in developing bespoke recycled polymers to suit clients’ specifications for use in a wide range of new products.

At Axion’s two processing sites, plastics recovered from end-of-life vehicles (auto shredder waste) are refined into high-quality engineering polymers that match virgin material quality.

Teamwork, expert knowledge and client liaison are crucial at every stage of the complex development process.

From initial client contact through to polymer specification and setting up machinery for best finish and results, the team delivers top performance for customers in a diverse sector.

What was once considered a waste material has become a valuable raw material resource going back into different applications, such as new vehicle components, furniture and roof tiles.

Axion Polymers collected the award at a ceremony at the London Hilton, Park Lane.

Mark Keenan, Business Development Manager, commented: “Circular economy principles run throughout every aspect of the Axion Polymers team’s work and we’re delighted to have been recognised with a National Recycling Award.”

Amy Stiven, Sales and Logistics Manager, added: “We’re proud of our ability to understand and satisfy technical sales. We build long-term relationships with customers to deliver successful, sustainable and locally-sourced raw material supply chains with all-round economic and environmental benefits.”

Laura Smith, Axion’s Commercial Operations Manager, said: “We’re thrilled and very proud to have won this high-profile award, which recognises the hard work and commitment of the entire Axion Polymers team. It is justly deserved.”

The MRW National Recycling Awards bring together recycling and waste management professionals to recognise and celebrate best practice and innovation in recycling and waste management.

Corin Williams, Editor of MRW, commented: “Every year through the awards we discover and celebrate truly ground-breaking initiatives, technology and services.

“The MRW National Recycling Award 2019 winners show our industry has the inspiration, expertise and enthusiasm to meet these challenges and lead from the front.”

Axion Polymers is part of the Axion Group that develops and operates innovative resource recovery and processing solutions for recycling waste materials.

The Group works with a wide range of clients within the recycling and process industries on the practical development of new processing and collection methods.
