Our New Factory and Environmental Practices
23rd April 2019
Our new second factory build is now complete and fully functioning, producing our new range of precast concrete products. We have also been very busy making significant improvements to our yard and stock areas to house all of our new products. We have installed a 7.5t overhead gantry crane, created a brand new road up to our site and installed an electronic gate to help with deliveries and traffic management of our new state of the art facility.
We have also installed a second 650kw biomass boiler where we produce our own fuel to heat our factory; we know that creating concrete uses a lot of energy so we have established methods of working that will allow us to use less energy for example by replacing a percentage of the cement with GGBS which reduces the amount of Co2 produced in the process.
We are dedicated to counteracting our carbon footprint; we have created a rain water harvesting system for our factory which means that we recycle all the natural water on our site.
We are now BSI ISO 9001 and 14001 accredited, this shows that as a business we are committed to operating to strict quality and environmental controls, providing a quality product consistently and reducing the impact we have on the environment.
