Luxus Invests In A New £1.5m Compounding Line

7th December 2018

Technical knowledge-based compounder and recycler Luxus, has installed a new £1.5m compounding line at its manufacturing facility based in Louth, Lincolnshire.

As the UK’s largest independently owned producer of recycled and prime polymers, this latest investment supports its continued growth strategy, increasing its overall production capacity by 22 per cent.

Responsible for the manufacture of more than 45,000 tonnes of highly engineered thermoplastic compounds annually to both domestic and global markets, this new compounding line will enable Luxus to create an additional 10,000 tonnes.

This major strategic investment has been made in response to the ever-increasing demand from clients for faster processing time scales and greater output, while still delivering the very highest quality technical compounds.

Peter Atterby, managing director, Luxus, comments: “We are committed to producing high performance, yet sustainable compounds able to meet the demanding service and long-life requirements of rapidly growing sectors including, returnable transit packaging and civil engineering.

“Orders have increased for some time so we required new equipment to enhance our infrastructure by supporting this demand, particularly for the development of polymer formulations for the progressively high-end colour specifications in these markets.”

Since Luxus works with materials from increasingly complex waste streams to help meet clients’ zero landfill goals, the compounding line will help satisfy these demands. It will deliver material process improvements that include, better devolitisation through increased surface renewal and filtration to produce innovative sustainable polymers that are now much closer to prime.

This latest investment will help to secure the manufacturer’s future growth and will continue its tradition of innovation in the development of sustainable plastics.

Luxus Ltd (

UK leading independent technical plastics recycling and compounding company Luxus has been developing highly specified thermoplastics compounds based on prime and recycled feedstocks for 50 years. Luxus is a key supplier to the major names in the global auto industry and it was the first and still is the only UK business to achieve approval for its recycled grades in car interior trims.

 Luxus also offers specialist ‘closed loop’ and ‘open loop’ recycling services to manage ‘end of life’ post industrial and consumer waste for the retail transit packaging, construction and local authority wheel bin markets.

Plastic Is Fantastic For Peter Laking As He Celebrates 50 Years With Luxus

31st July 2018
Peter Laking is celebrating one of the longest careers with Louth based technical plastics recycler and compounder Luxus – an incredible 50 years’ service!

In 1968 the Beatles single ‘Hey Jude’ was topping the charts and the Ford Escort had just replaced the Anglia, Peter Laking started his career as a factory worker with Luxus. The firm had just seven employees when Peter joined, who were all on first name terms at the time.

This burgeoning plastics recycling business was recovering unwanted waste plastic and re-engineering material that would have otherwise been destined for landfill. Plastics recycling was a new industry in the late-1960s, the mantra ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ has only just gained in popularity, it was the start of a new sustainable ethos.

Peter Laking describes what it was like to work at Luxus in 1968, “The work was very hands on at the time, one of my very first jobs was working on a granulation machine grinding polystyrene shoe heels and then bagging the reground polystyrene from an auger.

“There were no forklift trucks then, so we took each polystyrene filled bag off the machine, weighed it, (around 56 lbs), then fitted a wire tie around it like you would a potato sack, so it could then be carried over your shoulder to be stacked in piles, five bags in a layer, eight bags high - a total of 40 weighing a tonne!

“In my generation, once you found employment you didn’t think the ‘grass was always greener’ somewhere else. If you liked the people, the job prospects and the money you just gone on with it. The opportunities for growth were great, as they still are today for young people wanting to join the industry.”

In the late 1970’s when Luxus purchased its first lorry, Peter became a HGV driver helping with deliveries, but his real passion was fixing things. So when Luxus’ new factory was built in 1982 he helped to install and maintain its new machinery. His career was also supported with practical training so he learnt how to weld, turn metal on a lathe and acquire other new engineering skills too.

He was later promoted to assistant factory manager in the firm’s plastics compounding division as well as running a small engineering team. Then in the early 1990’s Luxus purchased a new recycling factory also on Belvoir Way in the Fairfield Industrial Estate, Louth where he became factory manager while still managing his now rapidly growing team.

Five decades later having ‘out-careered’ the Beatles he is still working for Luxus as a Maintenance and Project Engineering Manager. He not only manages his engineering team, but is constantly found re-engineering machinery to help provide bespoke solutions where needed to facilitate the smooth running of its technical recycling facility.

Even when he went on holiday some years ago, plastics were never far away in Peter’s thoughts, while eating dinner out with friends he got bored so he decided to burn the plastic knives and forks to entertain them by being able to recognise the exact plastic type simply from its smell and the way it bends. As it wasn’t the first time, his friends decided to reward him his very own ‘plastic is fantastic’ t-shirt.

Luxus managing director, Peter Atterby, comments: “Throughout his 50 year career, Peter’s support has been instrumental to our growth every step of the way, from a burgeoning plastics recycler to a UK leading technical innovator at the very forefront of numerous markets.

“Not only is Peter’s knowledge of plastics recycling second to none, he also has an energy that leaves younger men trailing behind breathless. As we move into a new era, with demand for sustainable polymers is an urgent priority for many producers, Peter is sharing his 50 years of expertise with the next generation of plastics pioneers – he is true asset!”

Luxus today is a £25m turnover business operating in global markets and is still fulfilling the same vision set in the 1960’s by its founder Ron Tonn, for a better, more sustainable future.

Luxus Makes Moves To Help Manufacturers Reduce Their Environmental Impacts

18th June 2018

Technical compounder Luxus is showcasing its high performance polymer range including PP thermoplastics and how they contribute to reducing the environmental impacts of manufacturers’ products at the PDM exhibition (, 19th-20th June 2018 (stand A009).

As one of the UK’s most advanced technical compounders Luxus has for over 50 years spearheaded the re-engineering of sustainable polymers into high quality, yet cost efficient technical compounds that deliver low carbon benefits and reduce landfill.

Peter Atterby, managing director, Luxus, comments on the challenges ahead: “The perceived environmental hazard plastics can present has been widely reported recently. To help manufacturers reverse these negative perceptions, we can offer an immediate carbon-positive solution in most polymers to support numerous industries.

“Attention is now being focused on how to effectively reduce environmental impacts; improve resource efficiency and lower carbon, all without any compromise in performance. While there is recognition too of the need to support the circular economy, rather than current linear approaches by prioritising ‘end-of-life’ needs through product design.”

Luxus leads the market on this issue of sustainability by offering a broad range of post-consumer recycled content grades to deliver added value even in the most demanding applications, from ‘A’ surface visible automotive interiors and recently exteriors, to rigid packaging and civil engineering.

In the automotive sector, its high performance PP portfolio including mineral and glass filled compounds meets the sustainability, technical and cost goals sought by the industry and is on par with virgin alternatives.

Luxus has continually invested in the development of lightweight compounds with enhanced scratch resistance for ‘A’ surface materials. Its Hycolene™ range for example, offers manufacturers the option of using up to 60% recycled content to further the environmental and technical performance of finished components. This latest iteration of the Hycolene range has the potential to take the density down to 0.850 without adverse effect on key mechanical properties.

Peter Atterby, managing director, Luxus, continues: “Currently, the ability to answer the call for materials with increased sustainability to help meet consumers’ eco-concerns is a business critical rather than an aspirational choice.”

I joined Luxus in 2016 as Logistics Administrator - a far cry from my previous career as a nursery teacher but it was the best move I ever made, I have learnt so much since working for Luxus and have the opportunity to work within a great workforce! I LOVE going to music festivals and concerts, cooking for my friends and family and spending time in the gym (ok, so maybe I don’t love that so much but my friends did warn me once I reached 22 I wouldn’t be able to eat enough for 10 people anymore) and of course… a cool Gin in the sunshine with friends is my happy place.
Jamie Hipgrave
Laboratory Co-Ordinator

I have worked at Luxus since August 1999. I started in Q-Polymers, under the guidance of Ian Pigot (great days) - I am sure he has a story or two! After only a few months in there I got the opportunity to move in to the Laboratory as a technician, where I have gained a great amount of knowledge in polymers and recycled processing. My current role within the Technical Centre is Laboratory Co-ordinator, and I take care of signing off all the finished production runs we produce, making sure they stay to the high standards Luxus is known for. My passions are Formula One and motorcycle racing, but not to the anorak levels of a certain colleague! I like travelling to hot destinations, my favourite so far must be Antigua. And you can't beat going out for a Sunday roast, which I like do once a month with my wife and a couple of friends. We are trying out venues all over Lincolnshire to hunt down that perfect roast beef!
Sarah Hudson

Chris Kerridge
Senior Project Manager

I accidentally started my lifetime career in the plastics industry back in the 1990s working for a Louth based plastics manufacturer during my school summer holidays. After completing my degree 5 years later, the draw of the UK plastics industry proved too great to ignore and I found graduate work in the plastics film industry. During my time in the industry I have worked at a number of UK manufacturing sites with responsibilities including Technical, Production and Commercial. With the increasing (and sometimes unjustified) consumer pressure on plastics and supermarket packaging, I thought it was a good time to look at joining a leading recycling/compounding company and was fortunate enough to have one recruiting on my doorstep! I joined Luxus in July 2018.

I started at Luxus in 1968 at the age of 15 and since then I have operated all forms of machine starting with the kettle on my first day! I moved on to grinding scrap, FLT driving and training and then obtained my HGV class one (which I still have). Next was engineering, repairing and installing our machines, and I even ended up at night school teaching welding and turning. I then became the Recycling Manager for 20 years and more recently became Engineering and Project Manager. Away from Luxus I have been happily married for nearly 40 years and we have two great children. My favourite place in the world is my course fishing pond, but I also keep myself busy with DIY, shooting and gardening.
Annette Lee
Purchasing Assistant

Following 9 years of working in school administration I joined Luxus in January 2017 as a Purchasing Assistant. Everybody has been so helpful and supportive and my role has now developed to include arranging collections of redundant plastic material. It is great to see everybody working so hard towards the end goal and to see plastic recycled in this way. My previous achievements, both personal and professional, have been completing a full time B.A. Hons degree at Leicester University whilst raising my daughter and then becoming a Civil Servant in the Prison Service. But when I am not hard at work, you will find me enjoying long walks with my three labradors.
