Gelpack now CHSA accredited
Gelpack, the manufacturer of refuse and recycling sacks and high performance flexible packaging, has joined the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association Plastic Refuse Sacks Accreditation Scheme.
Membership of the scheme provides customers with the reassurance that they receive what they order; that products are fit for purpose and accurately labelled so that they know what is inside the packaging.
Rigorous CHSA audits are carried out regularly to ensure that customers get what they pay for, or as the CHSA puts it, to demonstrate: "What's on the box is in the box."
The new CHSA range includes 5Kg, 10Kg, 15Kg and 20Kg sacks, all available on rolls or flat-packed in cartons of 200. Cartons will display key dimensional information such as length, width and minimum net weight, as well as the special CHSA logo, which differentiates between light, medium, heavy and extra heavy duty sacks to help users identify the most appropriate product for their needs.
Announcing the new range, Gelpack's managing director Geoff Davis said: "Gelpack has been manufacturing quality sacks from its UK base for more than 45 years. Some of our distributors have asked for a CHSA product that gives their customers the added reassurance that this accreditation represents.
"Produced in the four most popular design weights, our new CHSA range allows us to offer an even more comprehensive choice."
Based in Hereford, where polyethylene extrusion dates back to 1962, Gelpack is one of the largest privately owned manufacturers of polyethylene and compostable packaging in the UK, with annual capacity of more than 30,000 tonnes. The organisation's primary focus is in the development and production of high performance films, bags, liners and sacks for a wide range of industries, including food and beverage processing, as well as the local council, cleaning and janitorial and waste management sectors.
