Sustainability and Values.

We are committed to our values and to our corporate social responsibility and sustainability programme.

We seek to support and make a positive contribution the communities in which we work. For more than 30 years we have embraced responsible practices, employed local people and used local suppliers and partners where possible.

Effective management of health and safety, quality, environmental issues, carbon reduction and responsible sourcing is of key importance to the sustained success of our business. We encourage our stakeholders and supply chain partners to follow or lead.

We focus our efforts on continuous business improvement and product innovation. We’re passionate about engaging with our customers to encourage innovative development of our products, services and systems and are committed to achieving the highest standards in accordance with ISO 9001.

Our values aren’t just words on a poster. They drive our business, our thinking and our behaviours.

  • Collaborative – inclusive, approachable and resourceful
  • Trusted – honest, ethical and highly competent
  • Enterprising – passionate, hard-working and ambition
  • Disciplined – pragmatic, consistent and resilient
