Friday 5th November saw ercol welcome DEFRA minister Lord Henley to the ercol factory and showroom in Princes Risborough.

Lord Henley was interested in seeing the air quality and environmental features of the ercol factory.  These included our dust extraction system which collects all the sawdust from the factory for use in our biomass boiler to generate all ercol’s hot water and heating, our noise insulation which results in only 2.5% of the acoustic energy escaping compared to a standard factory and our use of water based stains and lacquers instead of the more common solvent based versions.

Our thanks to the Minister and his team for taking the time to visit us – we hope they enjoyed it.  And hats off to them for making the journey here by rail and rail replacement bus service!
