Galway-based JFC Manufacturing wins prestigious Environment Product Award

JFC Manufacturing, Tuam-based based plastics company, went forward to compete with 141 companies from 23 European Countries and  received the Product Award in the Irish Business and Employers Confederation (IBEC) Business Awards for the Environment.
JFC won the Product award, for converting waste stream bottles, into a raw material for use in the manufacture of pipes. These pipes are used as part of a storm water attenuation system developed by JFC that minimizes flooding.

JFC Manufacturing produces pipe and pipe fittings that are manufactured from 100% recycled material known as CorriPipe™. Linking in with collection schemes from around Ireland & the UK, bottles are recycled at JFC's Recycling operation at Runcorn, Cheshire and converted into raw material for their twin-wall extrusion plants based at Tuam, and Stratford-on-Avon. CorriPipe™ has a broad range of applications including Civil Engineering, Construction, Sports Amenity, Agricultural and other sub-soil applications. It is used for surface and storm water drainage as well as land drainage and has been used in road projects across Ireland and the UK.

Indeed JFC’s involvement in the stormwater sector over the last number of years has led to the development of a complete range of Stormwater Management solutions. One such system is the JFC HydroChamber. This system delivers water to a unique system that is designed to retain water during peak rainfall times and to regulate the outflow after the peak rainfall.  This system controls and minimises flooding.

Accepting the award, JFC Manufacturing Managing Director John Concannon said: “This project, “Storm Water Management”, reflects the high level of innovation, commitment and dedication of the JFC workforce to deliver innovative Irish solutions to global problems.”

JFC Manufacturing Operations Manager Norman Black said: “Our team of dedicated employees work together to achieve world-class innovation and manufacturing excellence. We are honoured to win this award, and I wish to extend heartfelt congratulations to our employees for being recognised for their outstanding achievement."

IBEC Director of Sectors, Enterprise & Regional Policy Pat Delaney said: ‘these awards provide an opportunity to showcase the best of Irish innovation in environmental management and practice. The JFC Manufacturing entry highlights the importance of delivering products that are innovative and sustainable.
