Overview

Grant Instruments takes its responsibilities to the Environment very seriously. As a long-established privately-owned company, situated in a rural setting, it is very conscious of its impact on the wider world.

Our strategy for minimising our impact on the environment is based on four key principles:

Efficient products designed to work to high standards and with a long operating life, over which the energy used in production and transport can be amortised

Localised supply chain so that components are sourced close to our manufacturing location, where possible

Intelligent transportation so that we work with our suppliers, distributors and customers to manage the impacts of transportation of goods

Respect for resources in our manufacturing and business operations: we work to reduce the use of resources such as energy and water, and re-use and recycle materials where possible
