As a rubber manufacturer, we acknowledge that our materials and our products have an impact on the environment, therefore we strive to do all that we can to mitigate and offset this. We have chosen to do that through innovation and quality, and by grounding our development in our values of respect for our customers, employees, shareholders, and, of course, the environment.

So, an extension to our Sustainability Program really focuses on staff, low staff turnover, staff satisfaction and creating a great company culture.
