Fri-Jado paints a greener picture

Fri-Jado has used the relocation of its head office and production facility as an opportunity to establish environmentally sustainable premises.

Fri-Jado's new head office in Oud Gastel.

The new building has been certified as “very good” under the BREEAM standard and incorporates new technology and automated features to deliver manufacturing and comfortable office environments whilst having a minimal carbon footprint and low energy consumption.

The building’s roof features 6,500 solar panels, generating enough electricity to serve the needs of 400-500 households per year. The climate control system is powered exclusively by electricity and is driven by three latest generation heat pumps for energy efficiency.

The building has insulation to reduce energy consumption and both the interior and exterior of the plant benefit from sensor controlled LED lighting.

Sustainability has been carried through to the company’s manufacturing processes, with most operations being powered by electricity rather than gas.

Fri-Jado UK’s director of national accounts, Gary Thacker, claims that the investment made at the company’s new headquarters highlights its holistic approach to sustainability.

Mr Thacker said: “Public opinion and the activity of climate change lobby groups will increase pressure on OEMs and suppliers to make further progress in delivering more environmentally sensitive equipment.”
