A COMPANY making sealants and adhesives has secured a prestigious quality standard.
Aspley-based Polyseam has gained ISO 14001 certification – recognising the firm’s commitment to environmental management.
Managing director Andrew Sutulic said: “We are delighted that our hard work has been recognised and that our customers, staff and other stakeholders can now be confident in our commitment to the management of our environmental responsibilities.
“Manufacturing – and in particular those including chemical processes – are often poorly viewed by the wider community.
“By achieving this recognition, Polyseam is not only helping to enhance its own reputation and credibility but also that of UK manufacturing.”
The work undertaken to achieve ISO 14001 saw the company make significant investment and improvements in several key areas – including a reduction in the cost of waste management, reductions in consumption levels of energy and materials and an improvement in distribution processes with associated cost reduction.
Polyseam has been developing and manufacturing sealants and adhesives for the own-brand market for 20 years and employs more than 30 people.
In addition it is developing a number of new brands, including the IPT range of sealants and the ASF Passive Fire Protection product range.
The ASF range includes sealants, collars, wraps and boards that help to ensure that both new builds and refurbished properties meet the latest requirements for air, sound and fire insulation.
