Richmond Containers


Richmond Containers are a specialist pharmaceutical packaging manufacturer firmly focussed on the future as they look to bolster their green credentials alongside an all-encompassing Cooperate Social Responsibility policy and existing environmental policies.

After exploring different installers Centreco were selected to develop a bespoke 79kW Tier One Roof Mounted Solar Panel System for Richmond Containers at their HQ in Glasgow.

With electricity costs on the rise, Richmond Containers are now able to benefit from equivalent fixed electricity costs of just 3.5p per kWh for the next 25 years across their premises. This compares to prices we are currently seeing in the commercial energy market of 25p per kwh, with these prices likely to increase substantially in the future.

Richmond’s Operations Manager, James Paynter, said “Centreco helped us with was that we needed to replace the roof on our building and projected solar savings was a great way to offset against roof cost over the coming years. All of these elements helping us to fulfil our mission to design, create and supply beautiful and sustainable packaging for skincare and personal care.”
