Sorting & packing facility
The Wilcox computerised sorting and processing facility is an industry leader in the UK and Europe and has achieved this due to our constant drive for innovation. The installation of highly sophisticated sorting lines, in one of the most modern state of the art facilities in the UK, ensures that Wilcox combine high productivity with exceptional quality.
These computer controlled operations have set new standards within the industry. Items are sorted and graded several times by our highly skilled operators to ensure that only high quality, desirable used clothing is exported to overseas partners.
Items that are not fit for export can be cut and processed into industrial wiping cloths or classified for fibre reclamation. Textiles that are destined for recycling as industrial wipes pass through our high sensitivity metal detector to ensure that they contain no contaminants.
