Predominantly supplying the construction industry, we are truly passionate about helping to build a carbon neutral solution.
We’ve challenged ourselves to remove greenhouse gas emissions from our manufacturing processes by 2030.
From design and materials to sourcing and assembly, we drive the ethos of use and reuse. We are well on our way to making products as circular as possible by constantly challenging ourselves to use innovative material that minimize climate impact, resource depletion and pollution
Our factory already has solar panels installed and all our delivery vehicles are classified as Euro 6.
Most manufacturers already are familiar with the three Rs of sustainability:-
Avoid using disposable products; eliminate excess packaging; use email instead of paper mail; buy durable goods that can be repaired; use raw materials in the most efficient way possible; purchase multitasking equipment that can perform different kinds of jobs in one.
Make use of scrap materials; fix/upgrade old equipment rather than purchasing new.
Buy products and materials that are made from recycled materials; recycle metals, paper, and plastics; avoid the use of hazardous substances and opt for nontoxic products.
There’s a fourth R for the steel industry, and that’s Remanufacturing. With materials such as steel and alloy steel, manufacturers can reduce their carbon emissions in the production chain by remanufacturing. This involves the reclamation of used, durable materials, such as steel shafts, bearings, and other products that can be reused.
Salvaging or reclaiming these parts requires cleaning processes such as sand blasting or abrasive blasting. Abrasive blasting uses compressed air or water to direct a high-velocity stream of an abrasive material to clean an object or surface, remove burrs, apply a texture, or prepare a surface for the application of paint or other types of coatings. Pressure washing is another alternative, which uses water-based detergent and biodegradable solvents to clean parts.
Today’s remanufactured products are as good as new and more cost-effective, and the cleaning processes create much lower carbon emissions than the original manufacturing process.
We can’t do it all our own. We’re steadily building a network of partnerships for closed loop remanufacturing, repair and recycling.
