Made in the South West awards celebrate the diversity of the region
We were pleased and really rather proud to win the Sustainable/Ethical Manufacturer Award in recognition of our sustainable, eco-friendly credentials.
Made in the South West celebrates the best makers and manufacturers across Gloucester, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall. Winners of these awards then go on to the Made in the UK awards which are one of the most prestigious manufacturing awards in the country—celebrating the very best makers in the UK.
We were shortlisted in the South West awards alongside TrueSpeed and Mail Handling International but won the Sustainable/Ethical Manufacturer category based on our solar powered workshop and use of certified timber, as well as turning any waste to heat energy.
Reducing our environmental impact has been a big part of the business since the word go. It’s vital for the future success of our company, our society and our planet. But as a business, we also understand that everything we do has an impact, and that’s why ever since we started we’ve been dedicated to reducing our environmental impact and using sustainable and eco-friendly materials. Wood is at the core of our business, it’s one of the most sustainable materials on the planet, and all of our timber is FSC certified.
We also abide by the most sustainable practices possible in the industry and have taken great strides to achieve an eco-friendly status. We power all of our machines and lights using energy from solar panels, convert all of our wood waste into usable heat energy and recycle all of our extra waste as much as possible.
