We’ve made a Recofloor First, Here’s what we did!

In a Recofloor first, S&D Flooring Ltd was named double award winner for Brand Ambassador (new for 2017) and Outstanding Achievement – Gold, for our contributions to the Recofloor scheme.

Recofloor is a leading vinyl take-back scheme which recognises the importance and benefits of recycling vinyl flooring. It is used by hundreds of flooring contractors and distributors across the UK. All uplifted and off-cut vinyl flooring products are recycled into either new flooring products by leading flooring suppliers Altro and Polyflor or traffic management products such as cones and sign bases.

Described as the ‘epitome of productivity’ S&D Flooring was given recognition for having a dedicated Recofloor webpage and an active presence on a wide range of social media platforms including: Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. S&D Flooring also managed to accumulate and recycle one of the largest volumes of waste and uplifted vinyl by any contractor, which led us to be presented with two awards at the 2017 Annual Recofloor celebration event in London.

Joe Gardner, Project Officer at Recofloor said: “S&D Flooring is the first company in the history of the Recofloor scheme to win two awards in one year at our 2017 awards; they won both the Brand Ambassador and Outstanding Achievement awards”.

“S&D have been nothing short of exemplary, in 2016 they collected the largest volume of material by any contractor (14.6 tonnes) and it was all good quality material with no contamination issues whatsoever. S&D are on track this year to smash last year’s target.”

S&D Flooring Recofloor Brand Ambassador and Outstanding Achievement awards

Flooring Fact:  These trophies are made from the vinyl S&D Flooring helped to recycle. 

Steve Dixon, Managing Director of S&D Flooring said: “In September 2015 S&D Flooring begun its Recofloor journey. Since then our Boys in Blue have recycled over 20 tonnes of waste, uplifted smooth, safety and off-cut vinyl flooring. We have won multiple awards from Best New Comer and Bronze in 2016 to Outstanding Achievement and Brand Ambassador in 2017. At S&D Flooring we continually look to improve our sustainability and reduce our waste disposal costs. Using and promoting our participation with the Recofloor Scheme has helped the organisation save thousands of pounds annually, improve our sustainability and helped secure future projects. Each year we set an increasing vinyl recycling target. This year S&D Flooring aims to recycle 18 tonnes”.

Organisation Update: Top Safety SafeContractor Accreditation for S&D Flooring Ltd

Organisation Update: Top Safety SafeContractor Accreditation for S&D Flooring Ltd

Local business S&D Flooring Ltd has been awarded a SafeContractor Accreditation from Alcumus for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.

Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health & safety management amongst contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.

Employing 21 people, S&D Flooring Ltd is principally involved in the flooring sector, predominately specialising in the commercial sector. S&D Flooring’s most recent clients have included major corporations such as Chameleon Business Interiors, Strata Group, Sewell Group and more.

The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to win new contracts, and its commitments to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.

Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor said: “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.”

“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way S&D Flooring has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will continually be followed by other companies within the sector. SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process”.

Steve Dixon, Managing Director of S&D Flooring said: “As an organisation and a community we take pride in ensuring that we regularly update our SafeContractor accreditation.  We continually amend our Health and Safety arrangements, policies and qualifications of all our contractors to ensure that our team aligns with current Health and Safety requirements”.
