Regain expands its offering with exclusive partnership

Regain Polymers has formed an exclusive partnership with Sicut Enterprises, commencing the European manufacture of Sicut’s structural recycled plastic composites, including its market-leading railway sleeper, Ecotrax®.

 Selected for its advanced manufacturing expertise, Regain will manufacture all of Sicut’s products for European customers from summer 2016. Production will take place at Regain Polymers’ Allerton Bywater plant, with plans in place to extend to further areas of the UK and Europe over the next three years.

 The combining of the two companies’ expertise will accelerate the European adoption of Sicut’s structural composite materials, made from Europe’s growing recycled plastic waste stream. This will help address growing demands for durable materials to replace timber in the railway infrastructure, highway and maritime sectors. It will also provide a local, valuable and recognisable home for large volumes of domestic and commercial waste streams generated daily across Europe.

 The agreement will deliver practical, economic and environmental benefits to UK and European customers, with reduced lead times, lower prices and reduced carbon footprint.

 Michael Eidecker, Managing Director of Regain Polymers Limited, said:

“This partnership enables Regain to develop a brand new business sector, allowing the further development of expertise that all of our customers and suppliers will benefit from.

 “Sicut recognises that Regain’s extensive capabilities make it the UK’s leading bespoke compounder of post-use rigid plastics. This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to significant positive change in the use of waste plastic.

 “It’s an honour to partner Sicut in this exciting business and the partnership is testament to the skill and knowledge of everyone at the Allerton Bywater site. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership with Sicut, delivering this unique structural recycled plastic composite.”

 William Mainwaring, Chief Executive of Sicut, said:

“We are delighted that Regain has agreed to become our European manufacturing partner. As the UK’s leading recycled polymer compounder, Regain understands the importance of quality control and can apply their in-depth knowledge of polymers, recycling and extrusion manufacturing to produce consistent high quality products using our unique licensed technology.

 “The manufacture of our structural composites here in the UK, including our Ecotrax® railway sleeper, will not only offer significant benefits to our European customers but will also be welcomed by the UK plastics recycling industry as it battles to meet ever more challenging UK and European recycling targets.”
