Vent-Axia awarded ISO 14001 certification

British fan manufacturer Vent-Axia has gained ISO 14001 Environmental Management System certification for its Crawley manufacturing facilities, recognising its commitment to environmental excellence.

To achieve certification the company demonstrated that it has an environmental management system in place to reduce waste and energy use, improve efficiency and meet all legal and regulatory environmental requirements.

Managing director Mark Hoskins said: “We are thrilled to achieve ISO 14001 certification. Vent-Axia has consistently led the way with energy efficient ventilation through our Lo-Carbon range and so we are delighted that our Crawley manufacturing facilities have been recognised for managing and reducing environmental impact.

“Congratulations to all the team who’ve been involved in this achievement. We are pleased to be able to meet customer expectations of corporate responsibility and by achieving these environmental standards, we are confident that Vent-Axia is well prepared for a changing business landscape.”

Gaining this certification further illustrates Vent-Axia’s commitment to environmental operation. In addition to the development of its energy efficient ventilation, it has already taken steps to reduce carbon emissions by reshoring to the UK. It completed the reshoring of the balance of its domestic fan manufacturing, from China back to the UK, in January 2013 with the launch of three new production lines at its Crawley site.

As well as investing in the local economy, Vent-Axia’s commitment to British manufacturing has seen the company further investing in UK logistics which has helped lower the embodied energy of products by reducing carbon emissions. A reduction in international shipping and flights has resulted in a saving of up to 15 tonnes of CO2 a year.

Carla Whyte, UK client propositions manager at BSI, said: “Achieving certification to ISO 14001 demonstrates Vent-Axia’s commitment to being a more sustainable organization. Implementing a management system will now enable them to control their environmental impact and continually improve their performance.”
