Plastecowood was approached by a leading UK manufacturer. Disappointed by the longevity of timber products and fed up with paying the price for renewing vegetable growing boxes, their client was seeking large volumes of growing boxes in recycled plastic. The brief was simple: long-life, robust, easy to clean, stackable open top boxes at an affordable price. In constant contact with damp soil and being watered regularly, it was also important that the product was resistant to infestation, hygienic,
moss and algae free.
Plastecowood designed and built a prototype, received approval and then produced over 1500 on time every time. To budget and deadline.
Bad news for Plastecowood sales team: no more orders! Product is still in place and going strong!
