  2. 2. Agenda<br />Who we are<br />Review of different activities carried out<br />Rainwater Harvesting<br />Lighting<br />Video Conferencing<br />Reduction in paper use<br />Questions<br />
  3. 3. Malthouse Engineering Co. Ltd.<br />One of the UKs largest steel profilers<br />Based in Oldbury, West Midlands<br />5 locations across the UK<br />22 Profiling Machines<br />17 Lumsden Grinding Machines<br />Full CAD design service<br />All material certified<br />ISO9001 and ISO14001 accredited<br />
  4. 4. Rainwater Harvesting<br />We have been using our large roof surface to collect all rainwater landing on it<br />In total we harvest over 336000 litres per year<br />The system only cost £400 to set up<br />It is being rolled out to our other sites. <br />
  5. 5. Rainwater Harvesting – Diagram <br />
  6. 6. Lighting <br />Not only is there a cost to the bulbs <br />but there is a cost implication in the<br /> changing of the bulbs<br />We now seek to utilise low level lighting<br />Use reflective surfaces to reflect heat and light<br />
  7. 7. Racking system for offcuts<br />Its very important that we <br />are able to utilise all of a plate<br />Off cuts are stored and <br />used whenever a job will fit<br />This reduces the need to <br />procure new plate<br />We are currently working on a project to create racking to allow us to better organise and use offcuts<br />
  8. 8. Video Conferencing<br />Supporter of video conferencing using software such as Oovoo<br />Enabled better communication<br />More engagement with remote staff<br />Saves on travel costs and pollution <br />
  9. 9. Dropbox/Paper<br />Started using online file storage software <br />Saving estimated 1600 pieces of paper<br />Improving communications <br />£3000 per year saved on paper, printing and cost of confidential disposal<br />Recycle 26.4 cu. m. p.a.of paper<br />
  10. 10. Conveyor Scraper <br /><ul><li> Removes dust and slag from base of the bed while machine is in operation
  11. 11. Runs on motorised gear and chain system
  12. 12. Improves efficiency of operative and of machine we can now have 1 man per 2 machines
  13. 13. Can be easily installed to existing machines
  14. 14. Reduces need for dressing when cut</li></li></ul><li>Grinding<br />Steel grindings reclaimed via magnets and recycled instead of being sent to <br /> landfill<br />The water is recycled along <br />with the metal working fluid<br />Grinding stone grit used within the construction industry<br />
  15. 15. Cundey Systems<br />Recently formed Cundey<br />Systems Ltd. <br />Working in forestry machinery<br />Currently producing Peelers/Pointers/Sawbenches<br />Want to move into renewable energy, specifically wood fuel biomass <br />
  16. 16. Other<br />Water heater on shop floor changed to a more economical heater saving and estimated £35 per month in water/electricity<br />We have planted a number of tress around the site to support local wildlife and to reduce the noise impact of the factory<br />
  17. 17. Summary<br />Passionate and committed to reducing our impact on the environment<br />Many ongoing projects aimed at being more environmentally friendly <br />
