Marshall-Tufflex is celebrating its 80th birthday this year. To mark this significant milestone, the company is undertaking a range of special activities, including a drive to increase the average recycled content in its PVC-U products to reach 80% by the end of the year.
For eight decades, the company has solidified its place in the electrical industry as a market leader in cable management solutions and pioneers of plastic extrusion. Today, with warehouses in Watford and Manchester, and its head office and manufacturing facility in Hastings, the manufacturer is marking its 80-year milestone with a series of activities that reflect the company’s ambition.
Notably, the company is aiming to build upon its already impressive recycling credentials, with an ambition to increase the average percentage of recycled content used in its PVC-U trunking and conduit systems this year.
Jon Chamberlain, Managing Director at Marshall-Tufflex says: “We started using recycled content in our manufacturing over 25 years ago and since then, we have refined our processes to produce superior products that retain their high quality while remaining competitively priced. We want to inspire the whole supply chain to think more sustainably when it comes to any PVC-U specification.”
In addition to working with customers to improve sustainability, the company has continued to innovate over the past 80 years to provide solutions that make installers work simpler and easier. The company’s recent launch of the ‘Tufflex Tile’ is testament to this commitment. This Correx pattress product replaces the use of traditional plywood or MDF for ceiling installations and makes installing spotlights, smoke detectors, PIR sensors and speakers simple.
Jon adds: “We are delighted to be marking our 80th Birthday. We are all incredibly proud how far we have come since 1942 and our success is thanks to the people that make our company so great and the relationships we have built over that time. I’m looking forward to embracing the next chapter and the opportunities ahead to enable our continued growth, to take Marshall-Tufflex into the next decade and beyond.”
In addition to its recycling plans, Marshall-Tufflex is also focusing on a number of fundraising initiatives to support local and international causes, as well as hosting a series of giveaways and celebratory events to commemorate its 80th year.
