Deceuninck: Acquisition of PVC recycling equipment from Verpola

Deceuninck is on the way to become the number one in PVC recycling in the Benelux. As the company announced it recently acquired the PVC recycling equipment from the Bruges (B-Belgium) based company Verpola nv. Combined with the existing recycling capacity at its PVC extrusion site in Gits (B), Deceuninck increases its annual recycling capacity to 20,000 tonnes.

The complete line will be integrated into the infrastructure of its existing raw material production unit in Diksmuide (B). The total expenditure amounts to € 3 million. In time, this operation is anticipated to employ 13 staff.

The recycling of post-industrial waste from Deceuninck window manufacturers is expected to become operational from Q2 2012. By the end of 2012 the recycling of end-of-life PVC windows from window and door installers will start.
