Control Techniques UK Environmental Policy

Control Techniques Drives Ltd. manufactures a comprehensive range of advanced Electronic Variable-Speed Drives in a purpose-built 13,000 square metre plant on Mochdre Industrial Estate in Newtown, Powys. The manufacturing process comprises two principal phases:

  1. Printed Circuit Board Assembly.
  2. Module Assembly, using finished Printed Circuit Boards from the first phase.

An on-site Service/Repair facility refurbishes and upgrades returned products, offering a full range of service-exchange units and spares.

Our commitment to continual environmental improvement is demonstrated through the implementation of a formal Environmental Management System (EMS) which is certified under the International Standard ISO 14001.

The EMS helps us to fulfill our two main obligations, which are:

  • To maintain compliance with all relevant environmental legislation, as detailed in our Register of Environmental Legislation (doc. ref. ENV0007)
  • To prevent pollution by reducing, as far as is practicable, any environmental risks arising from our operations

The means by which we intend to improve our environmental performance are as follows:

  • Training and Employee Development
  • Improving Energy Efficiency
  • Improving Efficiency of Resource Usage
  • Reducing Waste and Scrap and improving Waste Management
  • Encouraging our Suppliers and Contractors to improve their own environmental performance

This Policy is a Controlled Document, and is subject to annual review by Senior Management.
