In the factory environment we minimise waste through thoughtful assessment of our materials to optimise use throughout the production line. For example, if part of a timber plank is not suitable for one purpose it can be processed for finger-jointed or glue laminated products. We also minimise waste by treating only finished timber products. This means that shavings and unused off-cuts are untreated and can be repurposed. For example, wood shavings are turned into wood pellets for pellet wood burners.
