Cowie Panel Processors Ltd (CPP Ltd)
 
Established in 1988 in an effort to provide Jobs for the community at a time when the local mining industry was coming to an end.  CPP Ltd was originally known as Cowie Woodcutters Ltd; the company was started with the help of the Coalfield Regeneration Fund and offered opportunities for employment in an effort to prevent further displacement from the local community.  The business was set up to manufacture packaging materials for use in the wood panel industry and supplied these to Caberboard Ltd later to become Norbord Ltd, Then as now all profits are allocated for use within the local community for various initiatives such as adult learning programmes, a bursary scheme for local students and support services for senior citizens. Major local employer Norbord Ltd, a multi-national manufacturer of wood-based panel products and the major customer of CPP Ltd. supported the business.  The steady growth of the Norbord Ltd plant has had a positive impact on CPP Ltd. and now there are over 20 employees. CPP Ltd is looking for opportunities to grow the business and further its impact on the local community.
