Environmental Policy Statement

As a leading UK based Specialist Surface Electroplating Company, we have made ourselves
aware of the consequential impacts our operations have on the environment. This we have done
in relation to the resources used within the product manufacturing processes and also the
energy used by our equipment once installed.

Our commitment to care for the environment is translated into company policy in the following

In pursuance of excellent environmental performance through the on-going development of our formal
Environmental Management System, we will put in place and regularly review appropriate measures to
prevent pollution incidents.

With regard to our identified significant environmental aspects, we will not knowingly violate any
requirement imposed on our operations by applicable legislation or regulation. We will maintain systems to ensure legislative compliance, operating to official guidance and to appropriate industry best practice.

We will set and regularly review objectives and targets for our highest rated significant environmental
aspects. We have identified those relating to resource use, waste and direct releases into the environment for particular attention. Our overall aim will be to reduce the associated environmental impacts at any stage of the product life cycle where it is practical to do so.

We will liaise with our suppliers, contractors and customers to find practical, mutually cost effective ways to minimize environmental impacts of common concern. This will assist us in our quest for continual, sustainable improvement in our overall environmental performance.

We will develop the skills and competences required for relevant staff to manage environmental issues
related to our operations. We will also pursue appropriate environmental awareness and understanding
amongst our various interested parties, particularly where concerns are raised.
