Marshall-Tufflex has announced that its PVC-U cable management products were manufactured using 74% recycled material in the last year.
This milestone is a significant achievement for the company as part of its mission to drive positive change in the industry towards a minimum of 50% recycled material in cable management products by 2028.
A pioneer of plastic extrusion in the UK, British based manufacturer Marshall-Tufflex has been using recycled material originating from waste PVC-U windows in the manufacturing of its products for over 25 years and in 2020 this figure reached an average of 74%.
All white conduit, mini and maxi trunking lengths from Marshall-Tufflex are currently manufactured using 100% recycled material. Thanks to the company’s ongoing recycling commitment, thousands of tonnes of recycled PVC-U are now used when manufacturing their white PVC-U trunking and conduit products.
To ensure consistent quality across all of its products, Marshall-Tufflex takes material samples from the production line every 10 to 20 minutes to check for consistency in colour and surface finish.
“At Marshall-Tufflex we believe that every individual has the responsibility to reduce their impact on the environment, and by pushing for higher recycled content in our products we hope to inspire others in the industry to join this vision that all PVC-U cable management products installed in buildings are manufactured using recycled material by 2028.” says Paul Mitchell, Managing Director at Marshall-Tufflex.
