From cable management to LV switchgear, wiring accessories to EV distribution units, our focus is to offer a complete solution for the domestic, commercial and industrial market sectors.

Staff Well-being Days

Sessions have been held focusing on hydration and regular movement. The goal was to encourage employees to take time for themselves and prioritize their health and well-being. To encourage the hydration element of these days we handed out to all members of staff a thermal water bottle.

Apprenticeships & Trainees

For the past 10 years, we have adopted a Management
Trainee Program with a view of creating the next
generation of management for the company.

Our Environment

Sustainable Packaging

By working closely with suppliers all operations now source cardboard from recycled content of 60% or greater.

Single Use Plastics

We aim to continue to reduce single use plastics within all products & packaging. Also we aim to increase the use of recycled materials where possible.


Increase in Green Energy

Over the previous years we have worked closely with energy suppliers to identify our best options going forward. As a result, in 2022 all 5 of our sites moved to a renewable energy provider which enabled 100% carbon offset of electricity.

Waste to Landfill

All manufacturing sites look to recycle raw materials and packaging where possible and this data is recorded and presented in the Sustainability Performance Data in this document. We aim to continuously reduce our production of waste to landfill year-on-year.


Scope 1 & 2 Emissions

Within this section of the report we will share our carbon emission data for gas, electricity and transport fuels as well as an intensity ratio in-line with scopes 1 & 2.
We aim for this to provide greater transparency to our stakeholders on our energy efficiency journey towards decreasing our carbon emissions.

Scope 3 our journey has just begun...

With Scope 3 emissions potentially representing over 90% of a company’s carbon footprint, we understand that reducing these levels has become a top priority for many businesses.

What's next on our journey


Further reduce our carbon footprint contribution


Improve on our first Ecovadis score from 2021
