In celebration of our 80th Birthday we were delighted to welcome, Sally-Ann Hart, local MP for Hastings and Rye to our head office recently. On her visit, Sally-Ann was particularly keen to learn how we pioneered the use of recycled content into our processes.
A key highlight of the visit was observing how the compounder machine contributes to our sustainability credentials. The machine processes offcuts from PVC-U window production and those removed from buildings to granulate the material into chips that are then used in the production of PVC-U trunking and conduit systems. The result is a quality cable management product that prevents waste material from going to landfill whilst offering installers and specifiers a more sustainable choice.
Sally-Ann learned how we have refined this process over the past 25 years as wecontinue to innovate and produce superior products made with recycled content.
Sally-Ann Hart, MP of Hastings and Rye said: “I thoroughly enjoyed my recent visit to Marshall-Tufflex and, in particular, learning about the levels of recycled materials that the company uses in its manufacturing process. In 2020 it recycled an average of 74% waste material across its PVC-U range, which is impressive. I congratulate the Company on celebrating its 80th Anniversary this year. The business moved to Hastings in 1957 and has, therefore, been a valuable local employer for many years.”
Jon Chamberlain, Managing Director said: “It was a pleasure to show Sally-Ann behind the scenes at our headquarters and manufacturing plant and demonstrate how we incorporate thousands of tonnes of waste material into our production processes each year. We are proud of our heritage and culture and were delighted to speak with Sally-Ann about how far we have come since we were founded in 1942.”
