NuLife Glass moves HQ to Irlam
posted by: Joanne Birtwistle - Monday 1st February, 2010
RECYCLING company Nulife Glass has announced it is to move its headquarters to Irlam, as well as opening its first industrial plant there in February.
The firm, which was previously based in the West Midlands, first announced the new plant back in November. It will create more than 30 jobs and use pioneering techniques to safely recycle televisions.
Previously there had been no long-term solution to recycling TVs as it has been impossible to safely recover the lead content in the glass that makes the Cathode Ray Tube – through which the picture is created in older televisions. But Nulife Glass is the first company to have found a way to extract the lead from the glass in waste.
Positions available at the plant will range from industrial electricians to team leaders and office staff.
Simon Greer, managing director of Nulife Glass, said: “We are proud to have developed a truly world-leading technique to safely recycle televisions, and we are pleased to be delivering this project in Greater Manchester.”
He added that the firm chose to build its plant in Greater Manchester after working closely with MIDAS, Manchester’s inward investment agency, and Salford City Council.
He said: “MIDAS and Salford City Council provided important advice and assistance over the last few months, and we are now looking forward to recruiting our full team and starting work.”
Colin Sinclair, chief executive of MIDAS, said: “With at least one other UK site under consideration, it is fantastic that Nulife Glass has chosen Salford as home to its new industrial plant. The 30-plus new jobs are a significant boost to the borough and wider city region, and provide further evidence of the effective working of MIDAS and our partner organisations.”
