Land

BoatThe site for our Birkenhead Plant was chosen due to its close proximity and good access to port, road and rail facilities for receiving raw materials and dispatching finished products.

Comprehensive Environmental Impact Assessments are conducted on all aspects of our operations. We use these assessments to control, manage and continuously improve our environmental performance.


We are committed to minimising the impact of our operations on the large portion of land our plant occupies as well as surrounding areas.
