About Close the Loop

Well positioned within the circular economy, Close the Loop Group consists of the merging of two secondary business groups- Close the Loop and O F Packaging.

The combining of these two entities allows for end-to-end solutions across packaging and consumables to a variety of markets, with advanced innovation in product development, as well as end of life take-back and recovery systems for complex commodities to greatly reduce waste to landfill.

With a Founder-led Board and Management Team, Close the Loop Group are leading with deep expertise and ideally placed to execute on growth strategy.

Our Specialty Products

Through O F Packaging, Close the Loop Group has been involved in the introduction of mono-based polymer solutions for soft plastic packaging applications, as well as award-winning innovations in re-useable pouch packaging.

Close the Loop Group intends to undertake mechanical recycling of plastics such as e-waste and post-consumer soft plastics, which are used to make rFlex™ (for injection moulded products) via a unique advanced manufacturing line.

Rigid plastics are pelletised and sold back to OEMs for use in new product manufacture.

Close the Loop has also developed TonerPlas®, a patented asphalt additive made from soft plastics and waste toner powder.
