Bradford-based Industrial Service Group (ISG) is a PVC-U window and door manufacturer with a difference, created to provide social value, it is making a positive contribution to its local community and delivering commercial success.
Originated by Bradford Metropolitan District Council in 1997, it is a social enterprise designed to create career opportunities for local disabled and disadvantaged workers and supply high quality product solutions for social housing, care homes, and hospitals across the Yorkshire area.
However, their roots stretch back much further, with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) establishing a support service to help incapacitated service people returning from World War 1 back into employment.
Having teamed up with Eurocell four years ago, ISG is enjoying commercial growth and healthy not-for-profit revenues that are reinvested into the business. Its success is built on delivering the very best customer experience; one that helps generate repeat business, customer loyalty and, in recent times, the emergence of new prospects in the new build sector.Darren Shaw, General Manager from ISG commented:
“Around half of our workforce has a form of disability or comes from a disadvantaged background. We are an inclusive organisation and offer career chances for many who would be otherwise excluded from the workplace. We tap into their enthusiasm, skills and commitment and it’s rewarding for everyone to see our people develop, gain self-confidence, and go onto thrive in a busy commercial environment.”
The complete solution
Eurocell is ISG’s exclusive supplier of extruded profiles from which the company designs, manufactures, and installs a wide range of window and door solutions. As well as guaranteeing a high-quality PVC-U profile, Eurocell’s technical support team is also on hand to offer advice and guidance around more complex specification issues such as helping to undertake wind calculations on proposed higher rise structures.
ISG’s service offering also includes in-house surveying capacity to ensure that prospective orders are seamlessly managed from initial enquiry to final installation.
Journey to zero waste
The company is also on its own sustainability journey as Darren Shaw, explains: “ISG is committed to a zero waste to landfill policy which means we are looking to recycle post-consumer waste and PVC-U offcuts rather than simply sending them to landfill facilities.
“This is part of our ongoing journey in addressing our environmental responsibilities and helping play our part in tackling the climate emergency. We recognise Eurocell’s outstanding recycling and sustainability efforts which underpin how it operates, and, together, we will continue to enhance processes and procedures to make a positive contribution to the world around us.”
ISG is making a difference within its local community, both in terms of creating rewarding career paths and delivering a quality-led PVC-U window and door service that is valued, respected and, best of all, in demand.With the motivation and potential to see the enterprise continue its growth trajectory, the management, and employees at ISG are set to generate further social and environmental value for the people of Bradford.
