Lee & Plumpton Passes Re-audit for Continuing Full Membership of FISP

Major British office furniture manufacturer, Lee & Plumpton has been re-audited and re-confirmed for continuing full membership of FISP, the Furniture Industry Sustainability Programme.

FISP is recognised as the benchmark for sustainable practices in the UK furniture industry.

It is an independently certified programme promoting best practise to drive social, economic and environmental change, via continual improvement of member’s business operations.

Registered with FISP since 2007, Lee & Plumpton recognises its responsibility to consider all areas of the business in terms of environmental impact. As an example, the solar panels installed at the Company’s headquarters have, in the last year alone, generated over 160,000 Kwh of electricity. Nearly half of the output is returned to the National Grid, sufficient to power 26 three/four bedroom homes for a year.

Lee & Plumpton’s product design and manufacturing principles are based upon modularity and minimising waste. The inhouse teams ensure that policies and standards are adhered to and cascaded through the supply chain. Working collaboratively, the Company seeks to identify solutions to reduce waste, embrace sustainability and maximise longevity of finished products and components.

The Company’s re-certification to FISP follows an independent audit by FIRA (the Furniture Industry Research Association) to assess a wide range of factors incorporated within the programme.

“We are delighted to continue our membership of FISP,” says Andrew Lee, managing director, Lee & Plumpton Ltd. “We are committed to continuous improvement and strive to identify new initiatives to maintain a sustainable business and minimise our environmental impact. It is particularly encouraging to have our efforts verified through an independent audit.”

With its Headquarters and 200,000 square foot factory in Attleborough, Norfolk, Lee & Plumpton operates a robust environmental management system which is registered with the British Standards Institute to the international standard, ISO 14001. The Company also holds Chain of Custody certification with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). This represents the unbroken path that certified products take from the well managed forest of origin to the consumer.

Lee & Plumpton is established as a leading British manufacturer with a focus on quality and durability supported by inhouse support services including research and development, custom design and its own transport fleet.

CMD Ltd puts University of Birmingham’s News School of Engineering on Track for Future Flexibility

CMD Ltd, the specialist in workplace connectivity and ergonomics, has supplied the power distribution and workstation power modules for the University of Birmingham’s £47 million School of Engineering.

The showpiece development will create a centre of engineering excellence for the university, with pioneering facilities that will drive interdisciplinary study and collaboration between the university and private sector companies. The facilities include an anechoic chamber for specialist experiments, and a laboratory environment designed for research into digital railway engineering, complete with a rail cab and hydrogen powered train track.

CMD Ltd has supplied more than 1km of its ‘plug and play’ Betatrak® busbar powertrack system to enable the installation of an agile power distribution network throughout the building. The 63A Standard Earth Betatrak® system offers effective futureproofing for the state-of-the-art facilities, with ease of reconfiguration and the capacity to add or alter the position of tap-offs every 30cm.

Alongside the Betatrak® system, CMD Ltd has also supplied more than 1000 of the company’s Conti under desk workstation power modules and the same number of 210mm cable grommets, enabling the workstations to connect to the underfloor power distribution network. Working with the client to tailor the under desk workstation units to the requirements of different areas of the building, CMD Ltd provided more than 20 Conti configurations, comprising power and prewired data configurations, along with 16A RCBO protection.

CMD Ltd was also responsible for the supply of on desk workstation power modules. The company provided c.1500 Contour on desk modules in anodised silver with white fascias to complement the high tech research environment. Each of these modules combines two 13A power sockets with twin 5A Type A chargers.

For the lab areas, CMD Ltd also supplied the company’s surface workstation power modules, providing power and twin 5A Type A charging for workstation locations.

A number of 20 Series Fast Fit Floor Boxes and Cleaners’ Hives were also supplied by CMD Ltd.

John Archer, Area Sales Manager at CMD Ltd commented: “This project continues our enviable track record in the higher education sector in an environment designed to combine commercial R&D projects with pioneering education and research.
