Benefits of reshoring to UK silicone suppliers

You may feel that it is cheaper to source your silicone manufacturing from an overseas supplier, but there are many long-term savings and benefits to be made by reshoring your manufacturing to the UK.

These include the following:

  • The ability to physically ensure supplier quality and regulatory compliance
  • The availability of credit terms to improve cashflow and reduce cash gaps
  • No fitting around offshore holiday shutdowns
  • No inconvenient effects from different time zones
  • No worries about the exchange rate when buying goods in a foreign currency

World class quality, environmental care and regulatory compliance

Quality and precision are the main focus in our manufacturing and we pride ourselves on providing solutions for a host of industries.

In addition to working to the ISO 9001:2015 standards, we also comply with ISO 14001 which sets out the criteria for an environmental management system that a company or organisation can follow, to ensure any environmental impact is being measured and improved. (Copies of our certificates are available upon request and can be downloaded on our website).

We are also committed to sustainable developments which enable the reduction of energy consumption and emissions, such as environmentally friendly wastage and disposal and effective recycling initiatives.
