Complete Business Overhaul as MGB Plastics and Straight Ltd relaunch to IPL.

Over the last few years, MGB Plastics and Straight Ltd became two of several companies to join IPL: a multi-national plc and global plastic injection moulding specialist.

Both sites have recently undergone a period of significant redevelopment which has seen over £25 million being invested in our manufacturing facilities, our people, product deigns and our processes. This has culminated recently in achieving the highest quality standards available, along with being perfectly geared up to help the UK become self-sufficient for all waste container needs.

A period of significant investment has created state-of-the-art facilities and a proposition that is now considered the UK’s leading manufacturer of wheeled bins and recycling caddies; working alongside 90% of UK councils. We now boast unrivalled UK production capacity, with the ability to manufacture up over 50,000 wheeled bins per week, which is a staggering 2.6+ million bins every year!

As of 30th September 2020, we rebranded our entire business to reflect this bold shift. Where previously you will have seen MGB and Straight logos, these will be replaced with IPL.


This is a great opportunity and exciting time for MGB Plastics and Straight Ltd as we continue to strengthen our position and develop more exciting new innovations; relaunching under the IPL brand will help us service our valued existing customers even better and welcome new customers.

Thanks to our significant investment, manufacturing and storage capacity, world class factory uptime, brand-new injection moulding equipment and our UK based distribution/customer service network; we can offer class leading times in alignment with your bespoke schedules.

Wheeled Bin Enhancements

Our investment programme has enabled us to upgrade our suite of wheeled bins, caddies & boxes; delivering containers that are market leading, bespoke & perfectly geared up for the UK market. Including, but not limited to:

  • Additional strengthening features to replicate real life use on Britain’s streets;
  • Ergonomic design features which enable our products to be the easiest to use for residents and waste collectors; and
  • Efficiency, production energy and transport improvements; providing the lowest possible carbon footprint solution.


Brand-New External Quality Certification/Accreditation

Our aim is to provide the UK market with wheeled bins that are perfectly geared up for life on British streets. As such, following our period of investment, we have now received the highest external quality certification available from internationally recognised quality institutions.


We have a strong workforce of over 250 people working across our Yorkshire sites, covering a range of disciplines. Our Managing Director, Ross Schofield, commented on the sheer dedication and commitment from our quality teams, who test our products every day above and beyond EN840 and RAL standards to ensure consistency of quality.



Our rebrand to IPL signifies our evolution to becoming one global, dynamic and innovative business entity. This will provide several benefits to our customers through improved product ranges, world-class manufacturing capabilities, excellent lead times, market leading quality & a fully carbon efficient process.

UK Council’s have performed extraordinary work throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, and we are delighted to support them. Now, more than ever, we are pleased to support UK Council’s in keeping the UK waste sector fully operational during this unprecedented time. We thank our existing customers for supporting us through this rebrand and look forward to welcoming new customers to our upgraded proposition.
