REHAU excellence celebrated with latest accolade

  • 26 Jul 2018

Celebrations have been sparked at REHAU, as the polymer processor has bagged another award, recognising its excellence within the industry and its energy efficient building products.

The latest accolade was part of the Sustainable Building 2018 Awards, where REHAU was given the Best Polymer-Based Building Products Manufacturer Award for 2018 and for Excellence in Energy Efficient Building Products.

REHAU remains a leader within the polymer industry, and has taken considerable steps to make sure the business strives to hit sustainability targets and creates a circular economy, as well as offering energy efficient products.

For over 70 years, the firm has designed and manufactured energy efficient products, and it is extremely familiar with PassivHaus standards, having earned many of them. 

The firm has also made the ongoing commitment to contributing to the sustainable building industry.

Vital to this is the Manchester-based REHAU PVCR factory, which recycles used PVC for it to be utilised in the TOTAL70 co-extruded profile for windows and doors.

This product uses up to 100% post-consumer waste within its core.

This latest award comes after the company was nominated in the BusinessGreen Awards 2018 for its third annual Sustainability Report that details its Fit for the Future strategy, as well as becoming a finalist in the National Recycling Awards 2018 for product of the year.

Martin Hitchin, Chief Executive at REHAU (pictured on the left, alongside Mark Gajda, Quality and Technical Services Manager at REHAU), commented: “Working towards a sustainable future is something that has always been important to REHAU, and it is only getting higher on the agenda of the construction industry.

“We intend to be at the forefront of developments in this arena and remain committed to reaching our goals set in our Fit for the Future strategy.

“This award is great testament to our ongoing hard work and it’s fantastic to continue to get this recognition.”
