Highland Spring Group gets investment

Highland Spring Group, is continuing to invest in both its operational and environmental strategy after securing a £55.5m funding package from HSBC UK.

The financial backing includes asset-based lending and debt refinance. A portion of the funding will be used to reduce the amount of PET plastic in the manufacture and production of Highland Spring products. This will help the business meet its goal of decreasing its use of PET plastic by 20% and increase the recycled PET plastic content of Highland Spring bottles to 50%.

It is also investing in a new railway siding adjacent to the main bottling plant, which will enable it to transport goods in a more environmentally sustainable way.
