Polystyrene converter wins double at Made in Bury Awards
6 December 2018
Molygran, a specialist in expanded polystyrene and polyethylene foam solutions for packaging, display and merchandising, scooped both the Manufacturing and Environmental Impact awards.
Established over 40 years ago in 1981, Molygran specialises in innovative and custom polystyrene solutions for small companies, merchandisers and large organisations such as major TV companies.
After enjoying steady growth for a number of years, the company felt ready to explore new markets and in 2017 worked with business advisors at GC Business Growth Hub to capitalise on the growing demand for environmental products and services.
Environmental business advisors at the Hub helped Molygran’s senior management team to investigate how its EPS products could act as a low carbon insulation material for the construction sector.
The company has also previously benefitted from the Hub’s support to accessing the Greater Manchester Export Fund to finance a factory extension, which led to new business opportunities abroad.
Molygran entered the Made in Bury Business Awards in 2018 for the first time and won both the Manufacturing & Engineering and Environmental Impact awards, as well as being shortlisted in the Family Business category.
In a statement, the company said:
“After an extremely busy few years, with both factory and office renovations, we are now looking forward to continuing our manufacturing development."
"[The awards] saw our hard work and dedication over the last 40 years be recognised and rewarded as we won two out of our three categories and highly commended in the third. To say we are thrilled is an understatement.”
