Pakawaste Ltd, market leader in the field of waste handling equipment, has recently supplied a CutCompact EPS Briquetting machine to the John Lewis Group Distribution Warehouse in Gosforth.

CutCompact EPS BriquettingAs an existing customer of Pakawaste’s, The John Lewis Group where already aware of the waste management products and high levels of customer service that Pakawaste deliver. However, in order to ensure they got the best return on their investment the John Lewis Group trialled several machines before selecting the CutCompact. The CutCompact outperformed the competition with the most efficient operation and best performance of all the tested machines. The CutCompact is a briquetting press with integrated shredding unit for compaction of dry EPS (polystyrene). The John Lewis Group are now able to quickly and efficiently reduce 18 roll cages of EPS (polystyrene) down to just one brick of EPS. Previous machines would only produce 300/400kg bricks but the CutCompact is capable of producing a 600/700kg brick. John Lewis are extremely satisfied with their new installation, the increased payload means fewer collections, lower costs and a more environmentally friendly solution. Lee Abbott from Pakawaste commented, “We are delighted to have retained John Lewis’s custom. Our competitors’ equipment failed to perform to the level of the CutCompact. The operators at John Lewis even went as far as to say it was the best machine they have ever seen, with a relatively low footprint it is the perfect choice for any business that needs to dispose of EPS (polystyrene).”
