RPC Tedeco

On 2nd March I visited RPC Tedeco-Gizeh based in Kenfig Industrial Estate. The factory produces plastic products for the drinks industry and employs around 100 people from the Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend areas.

In additional to the 100 highly skilled jobs, the business is supporting 60 others in the supply chain locally, and as part of the wider group employs over 500 full time members of staff in Wales and supports more than 700 jobs in the supply chain.

I had an informative discussion with Greg Kingham the General Manager who brought me up to speed on the issues facing the industry currently due to the changing opinion around plastic-based products.
