Ethical and Social Responsibility

Pledge

We aim to conduct our business in a responsible manner, integrating considered and proper ethical behaviour into our day to day activities. We continually measure our performance & progress in an effort to meet the expectations of our clients & those involved in our business. Wherever possible we will always endeavour to source materials from accredited companies with like minded philosophies.

Investment in the environment

In a challenging market we have continued to explore and invest in ways to become more effective. By embracing energy efficient systems we have now reduced our annual heating oil bills by 85%. In addition in 2010 we have installed motion sensor low energy lighting and rapid close shutter systems that will make a substantial contribution towards savings on our electricity and heat consumption.

Recognition

We have recently become one of only a handful of FSC accredited retail joinery manufacturers in our sector. Proud of our commitment to operating an environmentally friendly business we expect to achieve our Environmental Management Standard ISO1400 Certification early in April 2011.

Opportunities

The company is recognised as a major contributor to apprenticeship training and has received employer regional apprenticeship awards for the last three years. Our commitment to training & personal development has given opportunities to many young people whilst allowing the company to develop an exceptionally high skills base.
