Sustainability

How are we reducing our impact on the environment?

We are constantly on the look out for ways to improve our business and reduce the environmental impact of our operations. Our commitment to our environmental management systems is a priority and annual assessments continue to confirm positive improvements and compliance to recognised industry standards.

All of our products are designed and manufactured under one roof by skilled engineers with a strong commitment to improving efficiency and reducing environmental impact. UK manufacture of our products has many benefits including:

  • Lower environmental impact of transit and deliveries.
  • Employment opportunities for the UK market.
  • Support for the UK economy - all our raw materials are sourced from UK suppliers.
  • Good position to react quickly to UK market demands.

Manufacturing process

Water use down 75%

  • Significant changes to methods of production and cooling processes and the installation of rainwater harvesting tanks has reduced the factory’s mains water use by 75% since 2009.

Waste volumes halved

  • Cardboard and general waste volume has fallen by more than 50% in the past three years reducing the number of waste skip collections by half. This has been achieved by introducing more efficient handling and improved waste streaming methods to maximise recycling potential. Future plans to install compacting balers will reduce waste levels even further with a target of zero waste to landfill in 2013.

Packaging

  • All of our packing boxes and protective polythene bags are made from 100% recycled materials.

Into the future….we will

  • Increase the use of recycled materials and offer clients sustainable solutions.
  • Investigate new technologies and experiment with lower temperature manufacturing techniques to further reduce energy use.
  • Explore methods of harnessing factory heat emissions into renewable energy.
