Scell-it is constantly reviewing and checking it’s sustainable and environmental responsibilities for caring for the environment and the community.
Our approach involves many diverse strategies :
Reducing our environmental impact
Internally, Scell-it is committed to sorting and recycling all its waste . We also consult with our factories and service providers to reduce the waste generated by their activities and we are working on the elimination, in the long term, of single-use plastic in our packaging.
Scell-it after-sales tools are repaired and donated rather than destroyed.
The extraction of raw materials and the production processes of our steel screws represent 92.7%* of our total carbon footprint. We must therefore concentrate our efforts to ensure that each screw and fastener produced is put to good use. Our ESSBOX SYSTEM® helps to reduce lost fixings and screws which helps to reduce waste as much as possible.

Advanced production technologies and quality control
Scell-it invests in the development of its products and moulds, as well as in production tools. Certified factories, high-tech automated machines, specialized labour, flexibility, rigorous quality controls… This strategy ensures perfect control of the quality of our range of tools and fasteners and reduces waste.
Particular attention is also given to reducing travel: favouring train travel, organizing videoconferences if appropriate, raising awareness of eco-driving and allowing working from home. We have also provided on-site charging facilities at our offices in Stafford to encourage the use of hybrid vehicles by our staff.
Scell-it manufactures its products as close as possible to raw materials, and we package our products as close as possible to our markets.
All our catalogues, data sheets and guides are moving to digital versions – with paper copies printed off individually when requested. This cuts down on waste with less printing ink, less transportation and less paper waste – which are all good for the environment.
Looking after the future
Scell-it will continue to monitor and improve it’s sustainability by keeping up with government advice and constant review of systems and working practices. For a copy of our Environmental policy statement click >here<.
