Young’s Seafood grows partnership with PPS East in Grimsby

28 November 2012

Young’s Seafood has recently undergone an expansion at its Marsden Road factory. The need for more space to complete an increase in production has created additional work for PPS East, including the hygienic cleaning of all of Young’s Seafood’s plastic pallets, smoking trays, bulk bins and pallet boxes.

The extra business at this site has also meant that a quantity of PPS’s own plastic crates have been brought in on rental to help with internal production at this busy time.
Since 2006, PPS East Limited has provided a complete hygienic washing service for the majority of Young’s Seafoods Limited’s internal plastic containers. PPS East’s BRC accredited factory in Grimsby, sites state-of-the-art industrial wash machines to clean all kinds of returnable packaging equipment including tubs, bulk bin containers, plastic pallets, and fish boxes of all sizes.

PPS East use their own vehicles to enter the Young’s Marsden Road site every day, to collect internal plastic boxes, pans, trays and baskets, for washing and cleaning purposes. This service is needed to keep Young’s Seafood Limited in constant supply of clean equipment throughout their busy production cycle.

Kate Williamson, Business Development for PPS East commented, “We have been working closely with Young’s Seafood Limited for a few years, and have our PPS owned vehicles visiting their site 5-6 times per day collecting plastic baskets, crates and boxes which have been used internally and need cleaning. These are washed, swab tested, shrink wrapped and barcoded, ready to be taken back for reuse. We are very happy that Young’s Seafood Limited see us as a continued partner, and this extra wash work will be carried out in our usual professional manner”.

PPS East has also been working with Young’s Seafood Limited’s team on the improvement of their ‘end to end’ supply, reducing costs and waste bulk packaging. This work supports Young’s Seafood Limited’s Fish for Life programme on responsibly serving customers and consumers, and reducing the environmental footprint of the company’s operations. PPS East are now renting returnable fish boxes to some of their UK and Icelandic suppliers for the delivery of fresh product in to their Grimsby and Fraserburgh sites.
