Senior energy saving initiatives

  • installation of a waste reducing powder coating line
  • new biomass boiler which generates enough energy to provide free heating throughout the factory
  • new PURe® range of aluminium windows with polyurethane thermal barrier that gives ultra-low U values  

Mark Wadsworth, Senior Architectural Systems managing director: “Although we operate on a national level, we are extremely proud of our South Yorkshire roots.  This is an area that has a rich heritage of manufacturing and we are always delighted to fly the flag for the local business community and the wider industry.  Attracting, nurturing and retaining a local labour force is a key strategy to our future growth, as is our commitment to developing new products and manufacturing processes that are truly sustainable.”
