Work starts on the new Timberpak site in Leeds

WASTE wood recycling and reprocessing company Timberpak Ltd has started construction work at its new site in Leeds.

Work started earlier this year and the team is currently in the process of installing picking stations, building the loading pit and preparing the foundations for the state-of-the-art shredder that is due to arrive in the next few weeks.

The six-acre site on Cross Green Industrial Estate will increase Timberpak’s waste wood capacity in order to meet the growing demand for recycled material from EGGER (UK) Ltd. This material is used to produce carbon negative chipboard at plants in Hexham and Barony, destined for the interior design and housebuilding industries.

Mark Hayton, Director of EGGER Timberpak Ltd, said: “Our new site will ensure we can maximise our output and protect one of our most valuable natural resources: wood. It is a fantastic opportunity for us to fully support our customers with disposing of waste material responsibly and continue to grow our business.

“The recycled wood we supply to EGGER UK makes up 40% of a chipboard panel, which is 100% recyclable following use. Our new site will offer additional processing and storage capacity to meet the demand from EGGER’s production sites.”
