Roofing made eavesy-peasey

- ultra-long roof sheets at alconbury WEALD -

A new video of our Euroseam product being manufactured and installed has been causing quite a stir. The video shows the production, layout and installation of 140m long sheets on the roof of a new bespoke facility at Alconbury Weald. The sheets were ‘rolled at eaves’, manufactured directly onto the roof for a fast, easy access solution that is probably the only way to get such long sheets onto a roof.

Phil Cook, Euroclad’s Managing Director, was one of the first to see the video and is one of its biggest fans, commenting: “This is probably the first time that we’ve been able to convey the sheer scale, organisation and professionalism of Euroclads roll-at-eaves process and the specialist teams who manufacture and install them.”

We love this video and would be happy to keep waxing lyrical about it. Seeing for yourself is far more effective though, so click on the image to take a look

Sweet treats

Thanks to everyone who made so many delicious sweets for the first ever Euroclad Sweet Treats Day, in aid of Bristol Children’s Hospital. A total of £141 was raised, all of which has been paid to the Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal community.

The Grand Appeal is the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity, supporting sick children from Bristol, the South West and beyond. Our Sweet Treats Day was organised by our Quality Coordinator, Elaine Huxtable, to raise funds for this great cause that aims to help save the lives of sick children, provide pioneering medical equipment and keep families together.

Making an exhibition of ourselves

We’ve recently signed up to MIPIM UK and RESI, two of the most respected construction and property events in the UK.

Since the development of the Vieo roof and wall profile we have seen this fast-growing product used to really great effect on residential developments.  So we thought that it was about time we spread the word. And spread the word we shall, exhibiting at RESI, one of the leading residential property and construction events in the UK.

That doesn’t mean that we’re ignoring industrial and commercial construction.  Far from it.  MIPIM UK is the place to be for commercial property owners and developers.

We would like to wish Keith the very best in his retirement

This week sees the departure of Stalwart Area Manager Keith Leslie.  We would like to wish Keith the very best in his retirement; we will miss him.Keith was responsible for servicing our Scottish customers for more than a decade and in that time he has become the face and voice of Euroclad in the northern third of the UK.
Euroclad Managing Director Phil Cook said “I hope Keith enjoys a well-earned retirement, he deserves it.  Keith has always demonstrated an unprecedented level of professionalism and his attention to detail has served our customers well.“

When asked about his time at Euroclad, Keith commented: “It has been a pleasure being part of a great team and cultivating some enduring relationships with architects and specialist contractors. I wish my customers and colleagues a happy and prosperous future.”
We are currently recruiting for Keith’s replacement. Until we get the right person on board please contact John Spittlehouse with any questions about Scottish projects, orders or deliveries.

Clive Wright – special work anniversary

It is a pleasure to congratulate Clive Wright on a very special work anniversary. 35 years ago to the day Clive started work at Euroclad, as one of the very first people to be employed. Ironically he only joined for two weeks of temporary work as a Machine Operators Assistant. But despite having no previous industry experience Clive had an affinity with profiled sheeting and he thankfully stayed, developing an unprecedented level of manufacturing knowledge and experience; growing as an individual, whilst Euroclad grew as a company. Clive helped develop our manufacturing systems from the very beginning of the company and he continues to do so, currently holding the pivotal position of Business Operations Manager.

When asked about his time at Euroclad Clive said “It’s been an exciting and challenging experience and despite being with the company through some difficult economic times the positives are overwhelming and I look forward to what can only be a bright future for Euroclad.”

35 Years Strong

Euroclad 35 years

35 years ago Euroclad was conceived and we’re pleased to say that the business has grown, evolved and innovated in order to anticipate and react to the changing requirements of our customers. Metal roof and wall cladding has experienced evolution, revolution and renaissance since the 80’s and we have been ever-present; at the forefront of the industry as a reliable name, representing the very highest levels of quality and service.

Many early employees are still with the business, forming the backbone of the company in production, technical and sales, and supporting the company’s enviable reputation for reliable products, delivered on-time. This experience is balanced by enthusiastic new members of the team, who are helping to maintain our high standards and drive product development into new and exciting roof and wall systems.

We would like to thank all of our customers, new and old, for being part of both our history and our future. Managing Director Phil Cook, who was the second person to be employed by Euroclad, recently celebrated his 35th anniversary at Euroclad, saying “Working with such great people has been one of the pleasures of working at Euroclad over the last 35 years”.

Elite Systems achieve BES 6001

We are delighted to announce that Elite Systems have achieved BES 6001 certification for responsible sourcing. The recent audit of our management systems, conducted by the respected independent authority BSI, resulted in one of the three higher certification levels of the BRE standard being achieved (A ‘Good’ rating).

This covers all of our Elite roof and wall assemblies, which provide structural roof and wall solutions with diverse applications, flexible performance and a range of external finishes. With this achievement Elite Systems now provide even greater peace of mind, featuring BES 6001 alongside BBA certification of all systems and CE Marking of all components*. This is further strengthened by pre-existing, accredited management systems for quality, the environment and health and safety.

Whilst recent years have seen increased publicity associated with global environmental issues and the impacts of businesses on their communities, we have always recognized that our procurement decisions, manufacturing and supply practices can have an impact beyond our processes and as such, have endeavored to procure energy-efficient products through appropriate ethical behavior.

In short, aiming to meet the needs of the present without compromising those of future generations.

Certification provides independent assurance of the robustness of our responsible sourcing management systems and compliance to the standard demonstrates that we take the environmental and social impact of sourcing components and materials seriously.

BREEAM recognises the increasing importance of the issue of responsible sourcing. A section on responsible sourcing of materials is an integral part of the materials element of the methodology, with points secured from BES 6001 securing additional credits in BREEAM.
 **All components of Elite Systems with the legislative framework that makes CE Marking possible feature a CE Mark

With the government’s increasing focus on sustainable development, many construction companies are recognising the need to prove that their buildings are built with sustainability in mind. One element of this is in the responsible sourcing of products used in their construction and the onus of proof is increasingly being passed down to the manufacturers of those construction products.
The BRE standard BES 6001 describes a framework for the organisational governance, supply chain management and environmental and social aspects that must be addressed in order to ensure the responsible sourcing of construction products. External auditing ensures all associated requirements and practices are appropriately maintained and that we are embedding these key considerations at the core of our activities.

We continue to collaborate with key stakeholders, and operate in a manner that is safe and respectful to people, our surrounding communities and the general environment.
