is now certified according to ISO 14001:2004 for its environmental
management system at its British manufacturing site. The certificate
issued by the certification body, Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance,
covers the manufacture of VICTREX® PAEK compounded pellets consisting
of polymers and fillers from the production of pellets to dispatch.
“This certification is a significant achievement and
reinforces our commitment to being a sustainable and environmentally-conscious
business. Along with many of our customers, we too believe in the
importance of maintaining a verifiably effective environmental management
system for our supply chain,” explains Simon Evans, Global Safety
