December 2014

This 25th year has seen significant investment in trying to manufacture in a more sustainable way. At the beginning of the year we changed all the workshop lights from fluorescent to LED and then over the Summer we installed a completely new extraction system connected to a biomass boiler and heating system. The system produces heat energy from all our waste off-cuts and this in turn heats the finishing shop all year round and the workshop in winter. The benefits continue with 80% less workshop waste to dispose of, less skip lorries calling at SW18 and the removal of our need for gas for heat energy.

In the three months to December we generated  60,000 kwh of renewable energy on the site.
