We’ve been shopping!

Demand for our products is at an all-time high both from the UK and mainland markets.

To cope with this demand and to ensure we can satisfy all our customer requirements, we have splashed out on some more kit!

Watch this space for more information ( unless you are a competitor!)

 


The Plastic Tax is coming!

The Plastic Tax is coming!

 

Our pre-stretch products are the ideal way to reduce your film use and now has never been the better time to make that leap!

 

While we are working on blends to satisfy the requirements to avoid the plastic tax, the Euro-lite range of pre-stretch products allows downgauging to ensure that you optimise the film already in use.

 

We will keep you posted on the PCW content in our blends but in the meantime, touch base with our team to explore the possibilities  with Euro-lite Pre stretch today!

 


Raw Material Shortages!

A severe tightening of raw materials due to polymer producer plant outages, force majeures and global transportation logistical issues are causing a big problem.

The supply chain for raw materials is tight but luckily with our global reach we are managing to source our material requirements to keep our business moving.

Business as usual at Eurofilms!


A Crazy Start to 2021

After a challenging year in 2020 for all of us, we faced even more hurdles in January 2021!!

Brexit new protocols and a severe lack of raw materials and spiralling costs, are keeping the logistics and buying team very busy!


Happy New Year 2021!

Team Eurofilms have had a great break and now are fully ready to tackle 2021!

We have an exciting year ahead full of new projects and planned investments – watch this space!


A MASSIVE thank you!

2020 has been a year that no one will forget quickly!

 

We wish to take this opportunity to thank our customers and staff for their dedication, resilience and support during this time.

 

Fortunately Eurofilms has weathered the storm well and our flexible approach has meant we have managed to tackle all the obstacles and various extreme waves of demand, caused by the pandemic & Brexit situation.

 

We would like to wish everyone a very relaxing Christmas break and a very much calmer and healthier 2021!!

 

Thank you

We all deserve a break!

After an extraordinary year of twists and turns while tackling Covid & Brexit related issues, it is nearly time to have a well earned break.

We wish to advise that our factory & offices will be closed from 24th December 2020 and re-opening on the 4th January 2021.

2020 – a year never forgotten!  Let’s hope 2021 brings a bit more stability & calmness to our lives.

Stay safe.

 


The next phase in the plastic tax journey!

The next phase in the plastic tax journey!

Treasury Response to Plastic Packaging Tax Consultation is now complete.

Eurofilms are committed to have a range of HAND & MACHINE stretch film products that contain 30% PCW in early 2021. The range is yet to be defined and tests on various supply sources continues.

All manufacturers and distributors of products deemed to have 30% post consumer waste content must have the appropriate government certification to avoid the tax implications.

But the industry will be at a junction in April 2022 when the proposed TAX is implemented.

30 % PCW content film v current virgin material content……

It is still a very unknown if it will be possible to replicate the currently low gauge highly engineered technical films when a 30 % PCW material is included.

A few important questions are yet to be answered for our industry and for our customers?

        • Will a 30% PCW stretch film be consistent and fit for purpose at the current film thickness we use?
        • Will we need to increase the thickness of the film we currently use to incorporate the PCW material successfully?
        • The current PCW material is 2 x or 3 x more than virgin material – will this cost differential change?
        • Is there enough high quality suitable PCW material scheduled for availability by early 2022?
        • Do the commercials actually add up for the film we currently use…..virgin v pcw material costs and other spin off costs associated with this potential material change, including productivity impacts and load stability issues in transit?
        • How will it affect accreditations like BRC?
        • How do we achieve government approved certification status to sell 30% PCW content products?

 Many unanswered questions currently. We continue the journey of research and development to tackle this crucial and very important hurdle for our products and the wider industry.

Business as “almost” usual…..again!

Business as “almost” usual…..again!

As we enter into a new lockdown phase, we wanted to advise that Eurofilms will continue to operate 24/7 to ensure that we continuously supply our customer requirements.

We have been fortunate that we have been able to continue to function at full capacity throughout this year and will continue to do so. The demand for our product continues to be strong and being a UK manufacturer of stretch film / pallet wrap has definitely been a plus point during these uncertain times.

We would like to thank our Eurofilms team for being so dedicated and conscientious during these extremely unusual times and of course, our customers for their continued support.

We look forward to some normality soon ! – Stay safe.

Baubles & Brexit and don't mention the virus! - Are you ready?

Just 3 months left of 2020 ! A year we will never forget!
