About the project
The company have traded since 2007 from the current site on a commercial lease. As their workload expanded, so too did their need to facilitate further growth by development.
The company decided to look into the purchase of the land, with improvements to their processing area and laboratory capability. They also sought to develop a new battery refurbishment area, waste electrical equipment recycling unit and acid treatment plant.
Regional Growth Funding has been used by the SAR Recycling to help purchase new equipment and develop their existing plant, with the aim of expanding the company’s capabilities and effective workload.
As a direct result of this investment, fourteen additional full time jobs were created within the organisation to assist in lab work and enhance the company’s sales team.
Arvydas Pocevicius, site director for SAR Recycling, said: "We are extremely grateful for the grant which will enable us to expand our company and create more jobs in the local community."
