Our Commitment To Ecology

As we are involved in an industry with a high demand for material resources, we aspire to do our best for the environment and ecology as a whole.

In the Spring of 2013, we decided we wanted to help the declining honey bee population.

We have created a wild flower meadow and woodland habitat. We took a small piece of waste ground behind our plant and have invested time and money developing a sanctuary for wildlife.

Along with natural inhabitants like birds, hedgehogs, rabbits and insects we have given over some of the site to bee hives.

These creatures are so industrious that they help cultivate the ecology by pollinating trees and plants whilst controlling pests such as white fly.

We work with a local company Cross Key Bees who help us maintain a happy, healthy environment for our bees.

Our colonies produce around 70-100 jars of honey each year which we give to our suppliers & clients as gifts for Christmas.

This approach to maintaining the ecology by encouraging diversity is simple and very satisfying.
