Quality-assured PVC-U products and profiles systems

To provide independent assurance of the quality of our products, we have achieved accreditations from leading industry bodies across our entire product range. And Eurocell is a BRE supply partner to the Exemplar projects, a refurbished ‘House of the Future’ which showcases latest products and technologies with the aim of helping households to reduce energy consumption through sustainable refurbishment.
Chartered Institue of Building Award - Winner
At the awards ceremony, which was organised by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), Eurocell was also Highly Commended in the Environment Award category.
The CCIEM 13 Awards are sponsored by CSCS (Construction Skills Certificate Scheme) and ConstructionSkills. It showcases the professionalism, excellence and innovation at the heart of the Midlands-based construction community.
The recycling operation in Derbyshire has the capacity to process up to 12,000 end-of-life PVC-U window frames per week.
Eurocell is one of the few companies in the industry to recycle in the UK rather than mainland Europe – avoiding unnecessary additional carbon miles – and is proud to state that its products are ‘Made and recycled in Derbyshire’.
The CIOB judges commended Eurocell for developing a range of innovative new products using this post-consumer recycled PVC-U. Many of these are used to improve the energy efficiency of the properties from which the end-of-life frames are removed (closed-loop recycling), such as PVC-U Thermal Inserts, cavity closers and window profile systems.
National Recycling Awards
Advances in post-consumer PVC-U recycling have lead to Eurocell winning the National Recycling Awards 2012 ‘Materials Recycler of the Year (Large)’ category.
Eurocell was the only PVC-U systems company to gain recognition at this year’s event, which was held at The Lancaster hotel in London on 3rd July. Former England Rugby star and Strictly Come Dancing competitor Austin Healy presented the award to Eurocell at the ceremony, which was attended by leading organisations from across the UK.
The judges selected Eurocell as overall winner of the category, in part, because of its £3m investment in enlarging its post-consumer PVC-U recycling facility, which is now the largest of its kind in the UK with a capacity to process up to 12,000 end-of-life window frames per week.
The Materials Recycler of the Year Award recognised this investment as well as Eurocell’s commitment to sustainable manufacturing leadership. Eurocell was also commended for its improved, market-leading Eurologik profile system that is made using post-consumer recycled PVC-U, as well as customer-specific closed-loop recycling programmes.
Construction News Awards - Finalists
Eurocell Lays Groundwork for Customers with Industry Award
Setting the benchmark for sustainable manufacturing leadership has helped Eurocell secure a well deserved place in the finals of the Construction News Awards 2013.
The judging panel commended Eurocell for its £3m investment in enlarging its post-consumer PVC-U recycling operation as well as taking into consideration product performance and strategic direction of the company.
Being shortlisted in this universally recognised industry award will increase awareness of the products and services offered by Eurocell customers directly with specifiers and developers.
Supply Chain Sustainability School Silver award
As part of our relationship with leading house builder Barratt, we were asked to enrol in the Supply Chain Sustainability School and to attain Bronze status prior to the end of 2017.
So it was great news, and a great achievement, that we exceeded what we were asked to achieve and were awarded Silver status for our efforts!
The Supply Chain Sustainability School is backed and funded by the UK's top house builders, contractors and clients and was founded to help the supply chain meet the challenging targets set out by UK Government with regards to house building - delivering one million new homes by 2020 and doing so with improved levels of efficiency, quality and sustainability.
