Network 2 Supplies believes its new £250,000 cable granulator will bring in £30,000 a month.

The granulator shreds industrial cable and copper wires at 800kg an hour, reducing it to sugar-size granules, then separates the copper from the plastic.

The copper can then be recycled into new cables and the plastic can be reformed into fence posts and outdoor seating.

The Bury St Edmunds based IT lifecycle management company says it will benefit clients by allowing them to dispose of redundant cables in a safe and environmentally friendly manner, while creating buyback value of cable and copper remains.

The launch of the granulation plant comes weeks after N2S announced two significant new contracts, which will generate up to £1m revenue a year across the world.

Jack Gomarsall, N2S director, said: “These are really exciting times at N2S, in the past couple of years we have established ourselves as an international player by moving into global markets and we are delighted to now have a fully operationally granulation plant on site, which enhances our extensive recycling services.

“This development is a major part of our continued expansion plan, which we expect to generate significant additional yearly income.

“However, our customers will also benefit greatly through the buyback income generated as part of the granulation process.”
