As a key part of achieving our vision, we wholly commit to caring for the environment through an effective environmental management system. As a manufacturer of engineering components and assemblies, we use the natural resources of the planet in the form of materials, energy, gasses and water.
As a bi-product of this activity we create waste which we minimise and control. We are committed to complying with all applicable legislation, the prevention of pollution and to continual improvement. We continually assess the environmental aspects of our operations and through the setting of objectives and targets ensure we have a positive effect on our environmental impact, both locally and globally.
we have installed solar panels on the roof of our building providing 50kW of power into our factory, cutting our carbon footprint considerably.
The factory floor has had its internal lighting totally replaced with energy efficient lighting reducing our lighting power consumption by 64%.
We have installed a Biomass boiler system for the heating of the factory and the hot water system, to replace the ageing oil fired system previously used, cutting our carbon footprint considerably. We review this policy and our environmental management system at least annually.
