Our Factory

Environmental Commitment

Piper Joinery recognises the importance of environmental protection and our responsibility to the
wider environment and communities.
As such we have undertaken projects such as:

piper joinery Biomass Boiler system

Biomass Boiler System

Our Biomass Boiler system automatically extracts sawdust and shavings from all of our machinery and uses this, along with shredded offcuts, to provide heating to the whole factory. Overall, this results in:

  • 100% recycled wood waste, saving over 300t per annum going to landfill
  • Low carbon heating – 100% renewable
  • Circa 260t of CO2 saved per annum on combustion emissions alone

Flat Bed Delivery Vehicle

When purchasing a new flat bed delivery vehicle, we engaged with a fabrication company to modify this to make two levels, whilst still allowing the capability for easy loading via a forklift.

These modifications have enabled us to maximise loading capacity so reducing the number of delivery trips which in turn reduces our carbon emissions.
