Building a Sustainable Future
It is now several years since Hymix began looking at the sustainability of their processes and products. Having established the policy, an initial comprehensive assessment led to the development of a programme that has swept through all that we do.
Early gains were made through investing in lower energy lighting starting with the floodlighting in the yard, moving into the factory and most recently with LED lighting through the office areas. Traditional air tools have been progressively replaced by battery powered electrical units which not only use less energy, but remove trailing hoses on the factory floor improving Health and Safety.
General waste has been reduced wherever possible, packaging is reused and other waste is sorted and recycled.
The next major step is now upon us with the Contract signed for Solar Panels to be fitted to the factory roof. This will provide much of the electrical power we need during the day with the surplus being passed to the National Grid.
