Grainger & Worrall Invests In Its Environmental Future

Grainger & Worrall, has gained ISO 14001 certification across all of its sites following the recent accreditation of its Telford facility. The latest ISO certification follows the Shropshire firm’s continued drive for environmental best practice across all of its sites and coincides with a £400,000 investment in infrastructure for a new natural gas grid connection at the company’s Bridgnorth facility.

 

Grainger & Worrall continues to drive for improvements to its environmental performance and waste reduction targets and employs the latest sustainable manufacturing processes across both of its sites to reduce energy consumption and minimise waste.  The latest accreditation confirms Grainger & Worrall’s world-class reputation as a company committed to best practice.

 

Geoff Tillson, Grainger & Worrall’s quality systems manager, said: “The ISO 14001 accreditation provides distinct criteria for environmental and business management systems, which we are continually committed to develop and exceed. Our latest drive for environmental measures matches that of our customers. Indeed, their desire for better environmental performance has made us market leaders in providing smaller, more efficient lightweight castings. Environmental performance and efficiency have become central to everything we do.”

 

Edward Grainger, director of Grainger & Worrall, said: “Our commitment to delivering market-leading programmes for our client base means we are constantly seeking to ensure our quality standards remain at the highest level. During the last few months we have invested in a number of measures to further improve our quality and environmental standards, but there is always more to do. Although we have received this latest accreditation, we will continue to strive to do more by challenging all aspects of our processes in order to be more sustainable.”

“The latest certification demonstrates Grainger & Worrall’s passion and commitment to being a world leading total castings solutions provider, with high standards of environmental best practice and performance at the heart of the business.”
