P. Wilkinson Containers Ltd recognises the direct impact that packaging materials and their manufacturing processes have on our environment. We also recognise that packaging classed as ‘not fit for purpose’ arguably has a greater impact on our environment (especially in retail food stuffs).

Our supply and manufacturing processes always consider the environment where possible. If your business has a strong environmental policy, then we can help to supply the most sustainable packaging solutions.

If you would like to know more about how we achieve this just read our environmental policy below.

The P. Wilkinson Containers Solar Farm covers the expanse of the majority of our roofing across our 3 acre site, and it feeds directly into our power supply. This now allows us to produce clean power, by the sun, and even by a full moon.

Our Solar power is able to power everything from fork trucks, to our heating – not to mention our affiliated factory William Say & Co.

So next time you get an email from us, remember the computer that sent it is powered by the sun.
