CPS would like to Congratulate Bitrez on winning the Queen’s Award for Innovation

On Tuesday 23rd July, Bitrez Managing Directors, Brian Allen and Paul Jones, were formally presented with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation Category by the Lord Lieutenant of Greater Manchester, Warren J. Smith.

Bitrez secured the award – the UK’s most prestigious accolade for business success – for its Bisphenol A (BPA) free resin, Curaphen. Launched in 2013, Curaphen is used for the internal coatings of food and drink packaging.

Following a worldwide health scare regarding the potential harm caused by BPA to humans – with media emphasis directed to expectant mothers and babies, Bitrez developed Curaphen – an alternative polymer to BPA based grades, for use with non-epoxy-based systems.

Not only does Curaphen satisfy new regulations, but it also meets desirable processing and performance requirements.
