A waste recycling firm based in Deeside, North Wales will help power up to 11,000 local homes after securing a business growth and equipment finance package from HSBC worth more than £850,000.
Paperback Collection and Recycling Ltd, which has developed a range of waste-derived fuels from recovered paper, card and plastics, has won a contract to supply a new power station in Wellingborough with 49,000 tonnes of biomass fuels.
The fuels will be converted to energy and supplied to the National Grid, as well as used to power local households.
“As well as part-funding the equipment we need, the finance package will assist us with our ambitious growth plans in the UK over the coming years. We’re already projecting a 15 per cent increase in turnover which we wouldn’t have been able to achieve without the help of HSBC”
As well as helping the company continue its ambitious growth plans, the finance package will part-fund a new plant and the equipment needed to assist with the contract, which will also see the firm employ four new members of staff.
Gordon Anderson, managing director of Paperback, said: “HSBC has demonstrated a thorough understanding of the planned growth taking place in the UK renewable energy and waste management sectors, so it was an easy decision to bank with them for this and other projects planned for 2016.
