Barcaldine based Fusion Recycled Plastic – a division of Fusion Marine – has supplied eight picnic tables to the Kilbowie Residential Outdoor Centre near Oban.
The picnic tables made from recycled plastic were purchased by the centre to replace its existing wooden ones, which were showing signs of wear.
Andy Trafford, deputy manager at Kilbowie, said: “We decided to opt for picnic tables made from recycled plastic because they are tough and will require no maintenance and last much longer than wooden alternatives.”
Operated by North Lanarkshire Council’s Learning and Leisure Services, the centre caters for more than 3,500 primary seven pupils every year from schools throughout the region, including disabled children. Kilbowie aims to provide high quality, adventurous activities in a superb environment.
Elizabeth Divers of Fusion Recycled Plastic said: “We are delighted to have been able to help Kilbowie by supplying a tough yet environmentally friendly alternative to wood. Sales of our outdoor furniture made from recycled plastic have been very strong this year and we have had a large amount of interest both from businesses and private customers.”
The picnic tables supplied by Fusion Recycled Plastic were the ‘Ganavan’ model and are coloured dark brown, providing a natural appearance that blends in well with the surroundings.
Previously, Fusion Marine had supplied a 31m shore based access pontoon to Kilbowie manufactured from recycled plastic and polyethylene to enable sea access for small craft at all states of the tide.
