Rutland Plastics Factory

PipeSnug is a plastic injection moulded product and is manufactured in the East Midlands.  The production facility exceeds 66,000 sq ft and employs over 130 staff.  PipeSnug is manufactured to the highest standards, including ISO9001 (Quality Management) and ISO14001 (Environmental Management).  The factory has strong sustainability policies including:

  • Fair and equal rights in recruitment
  • Employee Health & Safety and Wellbeing
  • Continual improvement in environmental impact – such as use of solar PV panels for electricity generation, ‘free air’ cooling systems, smart lighting and waste recycling

 

PipeSnug is made from partly recycled polypropylene and TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) and is recyclable.  The retail packaging is either recyclable or biodegradable.

PipeSnug also contains a UV additive to help protect against degradation from sunlight. We offer a 10-year warranty on the product, although it lasts much longer than that.
