This Leicester recycler processes waste packaging and sells high-grade plastic and paper-based materials to mills across Europe and the Far East. It was started in 1983 and all eight of founder George Smith’s children work at the firm, including his sons Mark, 54, and Martin, 53, who are joint managing directors. High demand from retailers wanting to improve their sustainability credentials and reduce landfill taxes helped exports hit £10.7m last year.
