Together towards a sustainable environment
People around the world are convinced that we need to think more about the environment. We cannot continue to use and consume natural resources like we do today, year after year. To produce split pipes of recycled plastic instead of new raw material makes a difference, a big difference. At Greenpipe of Sweden, the company behind Snap Split Pipes™, we produce millions of meters split pipes. Every pipe weigh between 1 to 7 kilos. Therefor we asked a third party, RISE (Research Institute of Sweden), to review our production and the environmental saving from using recycled plastic. The review showed that the environmental saving was 80% compared to producing our products from new raw material.
Since the production began in 2001 we have developed our products to provide our customers with world class split pipes cable protection. Successively we have been able to lower our production costs due to more effective methods. The product family has grown with both new products and new dimensions. We are proud to offer one of the widest line of split pipes around the world with fast deliveries due to a large stock.
We strive to further develop our products within the Snap Split Pipes™ family even more and in close cooperation with colleges in the line of business both in and around Europe. We will constantly continue to develop the Snap Split Pipes™ system.
The split pipe production is most often just a small part of big plastic pipe producer’s production, this leads to high costs to develop their own split pipes systems. That’s where Snap Split Pipes™ makes a difference. We believe that you should do what you are passionate about, and we always strive to develop new products and more efficient solutions within the split pipe sector.
We keep our margins down because we know that the price is important to our clients. Since the start of our company in the beginning of the 21st century, we have fine-tuned every detail of our production to be able to offer our clients a high-quality cable protection system to a low cost.
We are confident that we need to cooperate more around the world. Instead of competing for the market, we’d like to offer world class whole and split pipes in cooperation with local and selected partners. Solutions that both contributes to higher safety, better working environment and a more sustainable world. For us, but more important, for generations to come.
CEO Greenpipe of Sweden AB / Snap Split Pipes™
Together with market leading producers and clients we can make a difference.
Together for a reduced oil dependence!
There is a huge difference between producing products in recycled plastic compared to virgin material. Since we started our production in 2001 we have saved nearly 6 million litres of oil by using recycled plastic.
According to a study made by the independent third party, Swerea IVF (Olsson 2015), our products made from 100% recycled plastic will decrease the environmental impact with up to 80% compared to a product produced from virgin plastic.
Greenpipe of Sweden’s production is certified according to ISO 9001:2008 (Quality) and ISO 14001:2004 (Environment). The products are tested for polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) according to EU 1272/2013. None of the 8 PAHs could be detected in our material. Furthermore, our products are continuously tested according to EN ISO 9969:2016 (ring stiffness) and EN 61386-24 (impact resistance).
