The death of one of my favourite local buildings, ( the size of it, you didn't have much choice but to like it..)
(Courtesy of D Hughes demolition.)

Commissioned in the late eighties, initially as Eastman Kodak co & later acquired by Indorama ventures.
This imposing plant has dominated the Siddick skyline for almost dead on 30 years.

Producing around 160,000 t pa of PET granules. mainly used in the forming of plastic bottles & the like
Alas however, the rise in Asian production efficiency of PET products (causing a surplus in the markets) meant the production halving & then the eventual mothballing of the plant back in 2014.

The final decision was taken by Indorama NOT to restart the plant in late 2017, with demolition commencing shortly after..

The plant was mainly known for its impressive light show at night (mainly on the roof processing level) visible from Silloth & across the water in Scotland (someone has a pic on flickr I believe

Hey mate, well done for getting out there, but as said above, it’s info rather than an actual Site Report. Don’t let it put you off exploring other stuff though :)

And to add, Vimeo is pretty much YouTube for professionals as it’s pretty limitless, where YouTube has lots of limits etc.

Naa, sorry I’m done! Thanks anyway , always been interested in this, but the fact I am an amateur & trying to contribute in some form only to be told it’s a waste of time in such a sarcastic way..(not you) I’ll leave it to the ‘professionals’

I really wouldn't let the 'amateurish' comment put you off, the poster has been a member for 12 years yet has only posted 30 times. The regular guys here will give genuine feedback and it is worth sticking around if you really are interested.

Cant guarantee that you won't get the sarcasm though. ;)
