Technowash has today announced the appointment of its first Environmental Manager, Robin Lush.
The UK aqueous degreasing equipment manufacturer believes this is the time for them and their customers to focus on developing environmental, energy & cost savings for themselves and their customers.
The role will involve working with internal design & manufacturing teams – and with customers & suppliers, to minimise raw materials, energy & waste during manufacturing. Emphasis will also be placed on using energy-saving state-or-the-art miniaturized control systems in all machines.
Robin Lush said: “My role will be to get to the heart of our business and ensure that Technowash considers the environment in every decision. Saving energy and improving efficiency fits really well with the company’s ethics and we will be able to realise financial benefit as well as having a more positive impact on the environment.”
Robin’s appointment – the first of its kind for any UK degreasing equipment manufacturer – ensures that Technowash (already a market leader in their field) is at the forefront of environmental management.
The appointment has been timed to pre-empt the company’s end of year 2008 results which are expected to show their best trading year since their inception.
Technowash Operations Director, Anthony Grayson said: “Our customers and staff tell us that they want Technowash to tackle this issue in a responsible and determined way. Robin’s appointment will also cover our sister company, Partswash, and will help to drive their environmental awareness too.”
“This is an important time for both companies – and our efforts should help to make us more competitive in terms of both cost & environmental responsibility.
Robin will report straight to the board and will produce a company environment policy and strategy in the coming months.
