We take our environmental and social obligations very seriously. By pursuing principles of sustainable development, ensuring that we conduct business and generate profit in an economically, environmentally and socially responsible manner.
The heating throughout our factory and offices is produced by burning our own waste; this includes wood shavings, solid waste and the material from windows that have been replaced by us. Using waste in this way also reduces the amount of material going into landfill as well as the number of lorries visiting our workshops.
We, of course, are a big user of all types of timber. Over recent years we have moved to different species, for instance, we have moved away from using solid pine to more laminated material, this has many benefits including the removal of knots and defects during manufacture and uses around 30% more of the tree.
