Working for Sustainability – Aluminium and More

Sustainability means more than using environmentally friendly products. It means changing the way you think about everything you use, make or do. We take steps at every level of production to reduce waste, reuse what’s possible and recycle as much as we can.

 

Sustainable Production

Our primary working material is Aluminium, and we work closely with suppliers and recyclers. This is to ensure that not only is the material we use sustainably sourced, but any scraps produced during the testing or finishing stages are put back into the recycling system.

Aluminium is one of the most environmentally friendly metals on the planet. 75% of the aluminium produced in the last 100 years is still in use today. Aluminium can be recycled infinitely to make exactly the same product, which is why it’s considered the most recyclable industrial material.

But it’s more than just the aluminium. Our production team works with a number of different products during the fabrication process. Moving away from single use products also drops our general waste considerably. Always purchasing reusable containers and refills cuts our waste by at least half.

Reusable Packaging

 

Packaging is easily one of the largest sources of litter and pollution in the world. Plastic wrap, boxes and straps all being discarded without much thought.

We make a point of reusing any packaging that is serviceable for a wide number of purposes. And what cannot be reused is sent to be recycled.

Working closely with packing suppliers we also ensure that any purpose built packaging such as custom pallets are produced in a responsible way.

The BBC recently released a short video discussing the use of sustainable wood for pallets and packaging to help our eco footprint as a country.

 

Responsible People

 

Making a change in the world must be done on both the large and small scales. While as a company we make a point to order products and materials that are sustainable, we also push our staff to be responsible for their own footprint.

From offering reusable crockery onsite to discourage the use of single-use containers, to having recycling bins within reach. Offering a range of support options to our staff members to make being sustainable to easy option is the best way forward.

 

Practicing and promoting sustainability is critical for our world, our people, and our profits. We are committed to continuously increasing manufacturing sustainability at our facility. We have made a number of investments in sustainability measures in our factory to minimize environmental impact through every facet of production.

Our team works to produce the highest quality products that will last for years, reducing the need for endless production and also reducing the creation of waste product in our industry.
