A journey towards more sustainable production
Newhey is a socially responsible company that operates in an ethical way to benefit society, the environment and the economy. We are constantly seeking ways to reduce both energy usage and environmental impact right from the initial design stage through to production, maintenance and servicing. After investing in new high speed Colortec+ tufting machines, our manufacturing speeds and output have achieved a huge reduction in overall power usage. Each stage of the production process is computer controlled and is independently monitored using the latest technology to avoid unnecessary energy usage. Our advanced secondary backing system also plays a key part in dramatically reducing energy consumption, being a hot to cold process this eliminates the need for conventional drying chambers. After introducing these processes Newhey are proud to say that we have reduced general waste to landfill by a significant 50%. We have also totally eliminated processing waste to landfill, as 100% is now recycled, including any waste pile yarns. As well as delivering finished product to site on consolidated loads we also share transport with other manufacturers to lower fuel consumption and reduce our impact on the environment.
Our sustainability efforts have been hugely successful and we will continue to focus on optimising our supply chain and working closely with our partners to maintain a high degree of sustainability. We are committed to the cause of improving sustainability and reducing our impact on the environment.
