Multi-disciplinary design agency, Grove Design, has completed a £3m paper sorting operation for Allan Morris Recycling.
The plant, completed in partnership with equipment supplier Lyndex, is one of Grove Design’s most advanced projects to date. The build involved five designers and took eight months from planning to completion.
“This is the eighth recycling plant build we’ve been involved in over the last few years and by far the most significant fibre plant, with a number of challenges to overcome,” explained Austin Owens, founder of Grove Design.
“These included space and height constraints and the desire to integrate the best bespoke and proprietary machinery into the line, such as feed bunkers, OCC separators, overband magnets and three near infrared separators.”
Grove Design is a member of the Manufacturing Assembly Network (MAN), a group of nine sub-contract manufacturers who work together to win orders and share best practice and resources.
