Nadia and Ralph Becker are a husband and wife team, based in Colwyn Bay who have been making and supplying outdoor furniture and related products for over 20 years. They are based from their Llysfaen Factory with workshop and sales area, they sell and distribute a complete range of modern outdoor furniture of the highest quality. This operation is backed up with direct online sales and their attendance at major UK and International retail and trade shows.
At an exhibition five years ago, they came across a very attractive looking recycled plastic chair called the Adirondack Chair. This chair was part of a comprehensive range of outdoor furniture products – all made from recycled plastic products and produced in Canada. They were instantly taken in by their quality and loved the sustainability aspect and decided to see if they could add these to their line of outdoor furniture products. This was achieved and they enjoyed selling the product and the amazing feedback they got from anyone who bought them.
Rondeau Leisure had been the UK distributor from whom Mobek had been supplied by in the UK, and following changes in circumstances with this company, there arose the opportunity to acquire the UK distributorship. As of late 2019, Mobek secured the exclusive rights to represent the CRP Brand (Canadian Recycled Plastic Outdoor Furniture) for the UK and Ireland. Mobek sees this as a fantastic opportunity to develop and expand their business and refocus their efforts and resources.
The CRP range of outdoor furniture is a premium product, high quality, high end and made in Canada out of recycled plastic (HDPE= High- density polyethylene). This is the same material that our milk containers are made from and that we put out for recycling every week. The furniture is made from up to 100% recycled plastic, which diverts millions of pounds of plastic that would have been destined for landfill or the ocean.
The product is guaranteed never to rot, crack or split and comes with a 25 years warranty. It has a superior fit and finish and is maintenance free and completely weather-proof. The furniture is available in 15 different colours and can be engraved.
The product is very suited for the commercial market (Hotels, Restaurants, Pubs, Holiday parks, Amusement parks).
Mobek’s aim is to create brand awareness and generally bring our products to retailers in the UK. They believe that their outdoor furniture is very unique, excellent quality and best of all environmentally friendly.
Fun Fact: It takes 579 plastic milk jugs to make each Adirondack chair!
History of CRP Products
In 1994, Jamie Bailey, co-owner and co-founder of C.R. Plastic Products Inc. started manufacturing recycled plastic furniture to divert used plastic away from landfills and oceans. His goal was to make a product that would provide the look and warmth of wood, without the shortcomings associated with maintaining wood furniture.
The proprietary extrusion process discovered, improved and customized by Jamie, produces a unique plastic lumber that won’t splint or crack and withstands all weather conditions. This process creates a superior fit and finish, including a beautiful textured-look similar to the grain of wood, and smooth rounded edges for enhanced comfort. Each piece of lumber has an added automotive-grade UV stabilizer and is guaranteed to maintain its beautiful colour for years, without the need for staining or painting.
“We started with about $10,000 and a dream and our dream was to help save the environment and recycle”
Since perfecting the extrusion process and the comfort and design of its flagship Adirondack chair, C.R. Plastic Products has expanded its furniture lines into dining, loungers, deep seating and accessories. The company is now an industry leader in the North American outdoor recycled plastic furniture market and is expanding into international marketplaces.
As we look to the future, the company is always focused on maintaining the synergy between the environment and outdoor furniture with the core focus on developing new and innovative ways to create sustainable, eco-friendly, beautiful outdoor furniture.
