Spinlock is committed to reducing our impact on the environment in all areas of our business. Our long-term commitment is to continue to raise awareness and promote sustainability among our team members, suppliers, customers, and communities. Recent examples of our commitment include:
Continual packaging review to ensure we choose packaging that can reduce our environmental impact. We have stopped using plastic bags for as much of our packaging as possible. When packaging is used we choose packaging that is made from recycled content and can be recycled and reused easily, without confusion using roadside collection.
For large trade sales to single users we offer the products ‘free of packaging’ which massively reduces the use of packaging materials.
Spinlock are proud that many of our Control products have a lifespan of over 20 years depending on service history, use and environmental factors. We offer repairs, spares and upgrades on our products to extend their usable life. All our products are serviceable.
Many of the components of our products are recyclable and we are moving towards fully recyclable components where possible.
We assist in component disposal such as batteries.
At our Head Office and Production facility, totalling 60 staff, new recycling points have been added for simple recycling of personal waste and consumables.
We manufacture on the Isle of Wight by assembling our products in our own production facility in Cowes. Employing local people. We use local suppliers where possible; with 62% UK of which 12% are Isle of Wight.
We minimise the amount of rubbish we send to landfill, reusing any packaging material (received from supplier deliveries) this includes cardboard, packing and plastic bags for example and we otherwise recycle all cardboard either through collection service or reused for packaging.
We will donate all unused Mobile Telephones and PCS to charity.
