Minimising our impact on the environment

Sustainable manufacturing is the creation of manufactured products that use a process to minimise negative environmental impacts, conserve energy and natural resources, are safe for employees, communities and consumers.


Take a tour around the VELFAC Window Village and see where we design, test and manufacture VELFAC composite windows and doors

At VELFAC we understand the importance of embracing a sustainable mindset in manufacturing, and we can provide guidance and documentation on:

  • ISO9001 accreditation of our manufacturing facilities and ISO14001 accreditation of our Environmental Management and Audit System
  • Details of our water-based wood treatments
  • Proof that we use recycled aluminium in external frames, and that a big part of the aluminium is produced using renewable energy sources
  • VELFAC glass suppliers run detailed environmental management systems
  • Environmental declaration detailing our cradle to grave approach to sustainable manufacture and performance

We also recognise the importance to reduce material waste during manufacturing, therefore we implemented precision cutting technology in our facilities, to minimise the amount of waste.

Any residual wood and sawdust are collected for recycling or used to heat our factories, while residual aluminium is recycled again.
