One of our key areas of focus in recent years has been sustainability, as our vertically integrated supply chain sets us apart from many of our competitors. We recycle, produce our own base sheet, convert to finished product, and delivery - all within the UK and all transported by our own fleet of trucks. We think this would be a great angle for your online supplier pages.
Well over 90% of the products we supply are converted at one of our sites in the UK. Within the next 6 months this will be 100% as we continue to invest in our manufacturing facilities, particularly our folded towel converting at Oldham.
Over 80% of all products are made from 100% recycled base sheet, manufactured at one of our FSC® certified paper mills. Our paper mills are also ISO14001 accredited, which is the leading recognised environmental management system.
We recycle over 100,000 tonnes of office paper waste per year – which significantly reduces demand for pure pulp and therefore forestry.
We operate a zero-waste production philosophy. Bi-product from the manufacture of parent reels is used for farmland soil conditioner and animal bedding. Offcuts from the converting process are sent to our plants for recycling.
