As it grew into one of the UK’s leading liquid food and beverage specialists, Framptons made a commitment to develop its business sustainably.

To achieve its goals, Framptons needed the best equipment. phs Wastekit, one of the UK’s leading psuppliers of compactors and balers, worked with the team at Framptons to provide a new WK2000 portable compactor, which allowed Framptons to compact over 20% more waste at a time, increasing capacity from around 6,000kgs to 7,500kgs a week.
