WE ARE EXPERTS IN THE USE OF RECYCLED PVC-U

For 80 years, we have been pioneering plastic extrusion in the UK and leading the way in areas of product research, development and innovation, especially when it comes to using recycled material.

We have been using recycled material in the manufacturing of our products for over 25 years. Drawing on our knowledge and expertise, we continue to innovate and develop new ways to produce superior products that retain their high quality while remaining competitively priced.

Our PVC-U products were manufactured using 74% recycled material in 2020.

* Above figures based on our production usages from 1/1/20 to 31/12/20

Why drive for at least 50% recycled PVC-U content?

Because is starts the conversation. It highlights that PVC-U cable management systems are available manufactured from recycled material.

We want to inspire other manufacturer to follow our lead and commit to using recycled material.

Cable management may not be the largest area of the construction industry, but every little change helps. If there is an environmental choice, for PVC-U cable management that doesn’t compromise on quality, then why not use product using recycled content?

How much recycled material do we use?

We are aiming to reach a level of approximatley 80% recycled content across our PVC-U manufacturing by the end of 2022.

THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY IS THE UK’S LARGEST USER OF NATURAL RESOURCES AND THE LARGEST PRODUCER OF WASTE

Recent figures indicate the industry uses around 420 million tonnes of materials each year. From these materials, around 120 million tonnes are wasted, of which it’s estimated that 25 million tonnes end up in landfill sites.* (*Source: http://www.wrap.org.uk)
