Car component manufacturer pivots from metal to plastic containers
05 October 2018
Working with car manufacturers, Airbag Disposal UK is now using Loadhog Limited’s UN Certified Containers to transport and recycle airbags and associated components in a safe, legal, and environmentally compliant manner, saving 68% in procurement and fuel costs due to a 33% reduction per trip.
To date Airbag Disposal UK, a qualified and accredited specialist, has transported hazardous airbags, deployed and not, using large and expensive metal containers. With cost saving and safety at the forefront of Airbag Disposal’s operation, Loadhog’s UN Certified Containers, with the highest UN accreditations now provide the customer with enhanced security and improved ergonomics. Moreover, a security tag, plus an attached strap on every container further improves the safety of the hazardous materials within.
Josh Askwith, director and operations manager at Airbag Disposal UK, said: “After visiting Loadhog we were eager to get on board with its products. The UN Containers are applicable to our company on a day to day basis, both in the workshop and on the road. The prices are fair and affordable, and we look forward to working with Loadhog in the future with the latest additions to its UN Certified product range.”
These containers are also reusable, plastic and durable, requiring little maintenance and effortless to lift and carry. Furthermore, they can be stacked without using of a forklift and, due to the tessellating lids, can be stored away, making the shop floor look clean and professional when clients are visiting.
Loadhog has recently extended the UN Container Range with the addition of a 190 litre UN Certified Bulk Container capable of securing and transporting hazardous materials weighing up to 120kg. Airbag Disposal UK has already found many applications in which it would like to use this larger product.
