Did you know that all Fireco products are designed, engineered and manufactured within the same building based in the UK? It’s not often a company can say that their whole business operations run under one roof!
From the installer of the product to the end-user, there are many people who can benefit from using a company that manufactures in the UK. It can also benefit the UK as a whole!
UK customers buying products from a UK business will benefit from a lower shipping rate with a quicker delivery time, with some slots being available the next day! Import taxes can also be avoided, which is costed at around 2.5% per parcel.
If you were to come across any problems with your products, needed technical assistance or wanted product maintenance, it’s much easier to get in contact with the company and get the assistance you need, as you’ll be in the same time zone and travelling will be more accessible.
Sustainability has been at the forefront of the news for the past few years and businesses, as well as customers, are now favouring companies that offer eco-friendly and ethical products.
The UK has some robust pay and working conditions regulations that help buyers ensure they’re sourcing from somewhere that has good measures in place for their employees. This provides contracts and terms for fair prices, and makes certain that ethical practices, human rights and labour standards are met in line with our Modern Slavery and Environmental policies.
Ordering items that are made and transported in the UK will reduce carbon emissions by avoiding overseas or air shipments.
As previously stated, all of our products are made in-house, however, 97% of our components are also sourced from UK businesses!
The UK manufacturing industry provides around 2.5 million jobs, supporting the employment of citizens all over the country.
Supporting the economy
Manufacturing exports bring in around £183 billion to the UK, and also drive investment interest and employment opportunities, all of which contribute to the UK’s economy¹.
Due to Brexit, there has been a lot of uncertainty around trading deals between the UK and other countries. These doubts remain, so supporting UK manufacturers can only help our economy grow and keep businesses running!
