Mendip Stoves has announced that with the recent refurbishment of its factory, and a large investment in a new spray plant, it will now be able to use water based paints for all its stove products.
This has a great ecological benefit, not only for the wider environment, but also all employees. These low VOC paints emit no smell or fumes. The advantage for the end-consumer is there are no fumes being emitted when the fire is used for the very first time.
In oil-based paints, this can be an unpleasant side effect whilst curing the fire. As well as this, in the manufacturing process no thinners or oil-based fluid are needed.
Naturally there is no additional charge for these improvements, as Mendip are committed to making the best choices for the environment. That being said, Mendip is very proud to announce its recent achievement of ISO 9001 accreditation. Mendip Stoves is also proud to work in collaboration with the Woodland Trust. For every stove sold, Mendip will donate £10 to the UK’s leading conservation charity, which is enough to plant three native trees.
Chris Baines, Mendip MD, says: “Mendip Stoves are delighted to be working with the Woodland Trust, helping the charity to plant hundreds of trees.
“We have a huge commitment to being a sustainable business, which includes encouraging customers to use wood from sustainable sources. We see the Woodland Trust as being the perfect fit and are delighted that our support will see the planting and protection of trees across the UK.”
