Wienerberger’s Broomfleet tile works has partnered with a local school on an energy saving awareness campaign as part of the company’s ISO 50001 certification.
The Broomfleet staff originally visited Newport Primary School to discuss the importance of energy saving with the pupils, before requesting their help to encourage all staff to save energy throughout the factory.
In response, the students created a series of posters carrying slogans such as ‘Save Energy, Save the Planet’, which are now displayed throughout Wienerberger’s tile works.
The students were then invited to visit the tile works to see how clay roof tiles are manufactured and the impact their posters have made. The pupils were also given the opportunity to create their own handmade Sandtoft roof tiles.
Broomfleet’s production engineer and energy champion Rob Jennings commented on the campaign: “Wienerberger is a major employer in the town and many students have relatives working at our factory. It’s been extremely rewarding to involve them in our energy saving campaign and inspire the next generation to join the industry.”
