Introducing a more environmental approach in not only our manufacturing processes but across our entire organisation. Our well-established business accreditations didn’t cover a clear pathway to measure our environmental impact across our end-to-end processes.

Our Environmental & Sustainability Business Initiatives Actions.

Our Environmental & Sustainability Business Initiatives Action Statement outlines our commitment to proactively address environmental challenges and promote sustainable practices throughout our operations.

Through a combination of strategic initiatives, innovation, and collaboration, we aim to drive positive change and create long-term value for our business and the planet. Key actions include:

New generation Atlas Copco’s VSD compressors, FD Dryers, and UD Filters with energy efficient technology on each site. Reduces power consumption from traditional compressors by 40% with lower working variable load.

Installed x337 LED vapour strip lighting technology across both our manufacturing facilities. The new LED fixtures replaced traditional high-intensity discharge and old inefficient fluorescent lights. Creating a more pleasant environment for the team to work in, cost saving and a benefit for electric usage reduction.

In 2013 the first installation of electric charging points to cover electric and PHEV cars for staff, suppliers, and customers. We now have seven charging points available at S1.

We have installed x3 Regent Solar column streetlights. Two with dual arms and one with a single, they are 30W LED 2700K T-II with auto adjusting optics. As well as cost saving and a benefit for electric usage reduction. This creates a safer car park environment for the team on our second shift and for all users in the darker months of the year.

Installed photovoltaic panels to produce green electricity at each site;

  • 4 arrays of 356 panels total to S1.
  • 1 array of 600 panels total to S2.

This has led to an almost 25% reduction in electricity consumption since installation.
