Nick Barber, Commercial Director said: “We have seen very pleasing volumes for masterbatch and additives over the past 12 months, and it has become apparent that there is just as great if not greater demand for compounding of late. Particularly with the increase in use of Flame retardants, which can be inherently difficult to colour with masterbatch.”
Nick went on to say: “Broadway, alongside the entire plastics industry, have also seen an increase in demand for the use of recycled, compostable and bio-based materials, so the extra equipment could not have come at a better time. The installation of this new machine also allows for significantly greater efficiency in processing, meaning that we are able to maintain our market leading service.”
With more equipment comes more staff and indeed, Broadway’s overall Staff levels have increased by around 10% over the past 12 months, most of whom are from the local area.
Joe Maynard, Managing Director said: “As a family run business, Broadway Colours have strong community values. I’m proud to say that the company is able to provide employment in ever increasing levels to the local and surrounding areas. At the same time, the company has rigorous initiatives in place to ensure the company has as minimal impact on its immediate area and the environment as a whole.”
