Caring for the environment
We take pride in our work and are 100% committed to ensuring it is carried out in a manner that is kind to the environment. We have an environmental management system certified by Lucideon CICS Ltd to ISO 14001:2004. We also operate two wind turbines capable of generating up to two thirds of the factory’s electrical power requirements.
This assists compliance with national and local authority regulations and demonstrates our commitment to operating a long term commercially profitable business in an environmentally ethical and sustainable manner.
Consistency of manufacture is essential for the maintenance of uniform production standards and we operate a quality management system certified by Lucideon CICS Ltd to ISO 9001:2008.
Glass conditioning is a complex part of the glass manufacturing process and our team of engineers is experienced in all areas of forehearth and distributor design and operation. In addition to regular forehearth commissioning we also provide the following services:
• After sales service
• Maintenance contracts
Research and development
Developing knowledge and expertise is a key component of research and development at PSR and we are committed to maintaining not only the ongoing performance of our existing refractory materials but also to the development of new refractory materials that will benefit the operations of our customers.
Our laboratory serves the functions of both quality control and research and development.
We work closely with the relevant institutes and societies. We have a particularly close relationship with the University of Leeds and have collaborated with them on a number of occasions for the development of new refractory materials and processes, enabling us to benefit from their academic knowledge base.
