The SCA Prudhoe Mill is an integrated site and is the sole UK manufacturer of the Velvet tissue brand and the largest producer of own brand labels for major UK retail customers. It houses the Unifibres recycling plant, two paper machines, seven converting lines and an International Distribution Centre (IDC) which includes a fully automated warehouse called the DACW (Dynamic Automatic Compact Warehouse).
We have made several major investments in the SCA Prudhoe Mill with the aim of reducing energy use and water consumption in line with our ongoing commitment to sustainability.
The mill’s community fund provides support for regional, national and local charities, schools and community organisations carefully selected by its employee-led charity committee. The mill holds the ISO 14001 standard for environmental management; the ISO 9001 for quality management; and the OHSAS 18001 standard for occupational health and safety management.
