Nestle Waters is investing more than £35 million in a new state-of-the-art factory at Buxton in England. The culmination of many years of research and development, the factory will be one of Europe’s most innovative and efficient bottling facilities when it opens in Spring 2012.

 

The new factory based at Waterswallows in Buxton will, for the first time, combine the Nestle Waters UK bottling facility with a warehousing capability. The new bottling lines will significantly reduce the site’s total energy output, as well as producing the lightest weight bottled water bottles made in the UK. The innovative new bottle design will use an average of 25% less PET plastic than the current design, and will be used across the entire still range of Buxton Natural Mineral Water and Nestle Pure Life.

Paolo Sangiorgi, managing director Nestle Waters UK, says: “Demand for our bottled water brands has seen double digit growth over the last three years. This major investment in a state-of-the-art factory in Buxton clearly demonstrates our commitment to our market leading portfolio of bottled water.”

 

The new site will enable Nestle Waters to continue to decrease the amount of water used in its manufacturing. In addition, by the end of 2012 the site aims to be certified zero waste to landfill.

 

As part of the factory’s development Nestle Waters is working to achieve an ‘excellent’ rating within the BREEAM environmental certification scheme. The certification assesses the innovative solutions used to minimize the environmental impact of the building, the operation’s running costs and the site’s transport infrastructure and ecology.

 

On the new site in Buxton, classic Derbyshire dry stone walls will feature strongly within the design and will be used to reinstate field patterns and define site boundaries. A sustainable drainage system will also manage the water that runs off from the new site. Options for utilising the heat generated by the bottling lines to heat the warehouse and office areas are also being considered. Improving biodiversity is another important area which has been taken into consideration as part of the new site’s design.
