All PVC product and hardback covers are manufactured in the UK at our factory in Halifax. Any waste from the manufacturing process is fully recycled meaning there is very little impact on the environment.

Environmental Pact

KPC has a key focus on ensuring waste is reduced, reused and recycled. KPC’s book wallets are manufactured from PVC -Polyvinyl Chloride which lends itself to being mechanically recycled with reasonable ease. Using the correct facilities all waste PVC can be fully recycled and converted back into another usable product.

All PVC used by KPC is either used to increase the lifecycle of a product e.g. a book, a magazine, a cover etc or recycled into another product. Examples include; Carpet Underlay, Children’s Playground Flooring and Benches, PVCu Window Frames and more. Waste PVC can also be recycled back into PVC rolls for us to use again up to seven times.

KPC’s focus on ensuring waste is reduced, reused and recycled is not just focused towards plastic waste. KPC also recycles all their cardboard and waste cores. KPC’s group: Red Arrow prides themselves on holding the ISO9001 and ISO14001 accreditation. KPC is focused on maintaining these standards.

KPC's History


Kirklees Paper Converters was established in 1978. The company was based in Cleckheaton and specialised in hardback book protection.


Kirklees Paper Converters moved to a new building in Brighouse and was renamed KPC Book Protection Ltd.


KPC Book Protection diversified and entered the Paperback Book Protection Market.


KPC expanded and moved to a larger site in Halifax. We automated production and purchased our first in-line HF Welder.


KPC continued to grow and expand. We purchased multiple new HF welding machines to increase production capacity as demand grew.

KPC attended its first trade show in 2016. Since then we have attended multiple shows including:
  • The Education Show – Birmingham
