Marshall-Tufflex is the UK’s leading manufacturer and supplier of cable management solutions. Over 25 years ago, it recognised the significant impact it could have on both product durability and the environment by using recycled PVC-U in the manufacturing of its products.
The manufacturer used only virgin PVC-U in its processes, until it recognised the benefits to using recycled PVC-U from waste window frames. Being an external grade level, this offered a much more robust finish that created better durability. Coupled with the clear environmental benefits this offered, Marshall-Tufflex has worked hard over the last 25 years to innovate and develop its manufacturing processes to increase the amount of recycled material it uses.
Environmental impact is part of the company’s mission to drive positive change, and in 2020 alone, used an average of 74% recycled material to manufacture its PVC-U products. This has also resulted in some products, including its white conduit, mini, and maxi trunking lengths being manufactured using 100% recycled material, equating to thousands of tonnes of recycled material that the company has prevented from going into landfill.
Not only does Marshall-Tufflex focus on its own sustainability, but is challenging the construction industry to only specify PVC-U cable management products that are manufactured using recycled material by 2028.
