Strengthening Sustainable Technologies
Econpro is the parent for the manufacture of recycled infrastructure products, including Durakerb®, and the ownership of intellectual property for such materials and products. The group, which is based in the Wirral, grew out of the original Durakerb® business, founded in 2003 by inventor and entrepreneur Phil Sutton, who had spotted the opportunity for a lightweight kerbstone made of recycled polymers.
Phil is a committed sustainability enthusiast and has worked with organisations such as the British Standards Institution and the Health & Safety Executive to extend awareness of and accreditation for products made from recycled wastes and by-products.
Following the success of Durakerb® and a large-scale distribution deal with Aggregate Industries, the original company was restructured and renamed as Econpro WDS Limited to broaden the development of sustainable products and technologies. The group also offers consultancy and R&D services to organisations seeking solutions for dealing with waste streams and by-products.
