Kingsmoor Packaging creates sustainable energy milestone with solar panel investment

Kingsmoor Packaging’s recent collaboration with Mypower, a solar energy solutions provider, has resulted in an extensive PV solar panel investment for their Somerton manufacturing facility. Once installed, the system will mark a significant step forward in the thermoformed packaging specialist’s commitment to sustainability, as the company aims to achieve 50% of its annual energy consumption from on-site renewable sources by the end of 2023.

Following the recent announcement of Kingsmoor’s brand refresh and their inspiring new strapline, ‘Forming A Better Future’, this renewable energy project serves as a testament to the company’s unwavering dedication to this vision. Recognising the value of plastic packaging while prioritising environmental considerations, Kingsmoor remains steadfast in its commitment to producing packaging solutions that align with its sustainability goals and ongoing commitment to decarbonising.

With the integration of state-of-the-art technologies such as a free air chiller system and smart compressor systems, Kingsmoor has taken substantial strides to reduce its carbon footprint during the manufacturing process. The latest investment in on-site renewable energy further strengthens their mission to minimise environmental impact. By harnessing the power of solar energy, Kingsmoor Packaging will significantly contribute to the production of their own energy needs.

In addition to the focus on energy sustainability, Kingsmoor remains dedicated to utilising materials with high recycled content, ensuring all products are 100% recyclable. The company’s R&D team is continuously exploring innovative packaging designs that prioritise lightweight construction and reduced plastic usage, exemplified by their cutting-edge Cirrus™ packaging solution.

Kingsmoor’s PV solar panel investment represents a significant milestone in the company’s ongoing commitment to sustainable practices. By leveraging renewable energy sources and implementing eco-conscious manufacturing processes, Kingsmoor Packaging continues to pave the way towards a greener future.
