This time our award was received for Sustainable Development, adding to our Export and Innovation awards received in the past.
The award is in recognition of our policies and products supporting the principles of the Circular Economy. In an industry sector that produces a lot of waste and consumes a lot of energy, we enable clients to buy once and buy right. Many competitors produce products with 5–7-year life cycles. We offer 30-year warranties.
Managing Director and founder Richard Vass, stated, “We are chuffed to bits to be recognised in this way. I must thank our many clients who are willing to spend a little more on superior products, saving them money in the medium and long term. In addition, the reduction in waste and carbon footprints will really make a difference.” He added, “For several years, only a few smart organisations looked at our offering in the round, realising that the bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten! Now with an ever-greater awareness of pollution and carbon footprints, more clients are coming around to our way of thinking.”
This is Burland’s third Queens Award, having been recognised for Export Achievement, Innovation, and now Sustainability.
