Spaceright Europe Ltd manufacture a wide range of visual communication equipment, ranging from our original patented Unique Revolving Surface Boards, dry marker boards, display boards and many other educational and training accessories. The company added Spaceright mobile folding table seating units to our range of products, thus strengthening the product portfolio.
The continuing success of our company is due to three main factors and beliefs we embody:
- Our policy of offering a truly unique range of innovative educational equipment and canteen furniture to our customers.
- A constant endeavour to maintain the high standards of the company’s products by using only top quality materials, manufactured to excellent standards by skilled craftsmen.
- Being continually aware of the need to ensure customer satisfaction by offering a comprehensive after sales and maintenance service.
It is the intent of Spaceright Europe Ltd to maintain its leading position in the field of educational visual communication equipment, throughout the world, while maintaining the close customer relationship.
Wilson & Garden Ltd was founded by William Brownie Garden in 1904 in Kilsyth, Scotland, where its head office and manufacturing base was established for many years the main product was the rollerboard (invented by the company some 100 years ago) and is still in production today. In December 2005 the company was taken over by Ultralon Holdings Ltd and moved to new modern premises in Cumbernauld in 2007. In 2008 after a management buy-in the company re-branded to Spaceright Europe Ltd.
Ultralon Ltd, founded some 25 years ago, had a reputation for supplying quality notice boards, writing boards and display boards from offices in Watford. They successfully won tenders year after year and products are still going strong today. Spaceright Europe Ltd is keen to carry on this tradition and still manufacture Ultralon branded products to the same high standards.
Spaceright Ltd was formed by Ultralon in 2002 to manufacture, distribute and sell a new range of Mobile Folding Dining Furniture now well established Spaceright branded furniture can be found in many dining halls over the UK and Europe.Looking to the future we are focused on strengthening our position and expanding into new markets, delivering our excellent standards to a fresh dynamic environment. The potential applications of our products are limitless and we want to allow other companies to benefit from them to progress and streamline their business.
- Environmental Policy Statement
- It is the policy of the company to identify and act to prevent both Quality and Pollution issues from the company’s operations, while simultaneously maintaining sensitivity to the full range of customers’ expectations.
We are very conscious of our responsibility to minimise the impact that our activities have on the environment, in respect of our manufacturing processes, our purchasing of raw materials and the day to day conduct of our commercial activities.
All of our adhesives, stains and lacquers meet COSHH standards, and we are changing, wherever practical, to water based products. Cardboard packaging collected and returned to our factory is repaired and reused. All off-cuts of cardboard and packaging are collected for recycling by William Tracy Ltd .
The environmentally responsible use of timber is a complex issue. Timber is an inherently renewable resource, and if sensibly used results in minimal pollution. As a responsible manufacturer, we have sought to purchase timber only from suppliers who operate under the guidelines of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Also the company, wherever practical, endeavours to re-use and or recycle our timber products.
Timber pallets are either reused or collected for recycling by William Tracy Ltd , all other timber waste is collected for incineration by William Tracy Ltd
Goods damaged in transit are returned and are repaired where possible in-house. Faulty goods such as folding furniture products where an assembly of metal and timber products are combined are uplifted by William Tracy Ltd . to be recycled.
The company has specific objectives for:
- Establishing a practice and culture of continuous improvement.
- Maintaining a process of developing and communicating requirements for improvement by setting Operational Objectives and reviewing progress via the management review process.
- Ensuring all processes conform to internal and external requirements, customer contracts, and appropriate standards.
- Minimise operating and overhead costs through the use of Quality and Environment awareness.
- Ensuring that both Quality and Environment objectives for the company are consistant with Product Quality and Health and Safety requirements.
- Continually review methods, tools, and concepts for the business.
- Promote awareness of Quality and the Environment through training and education.
Overall our policy is guided by two major considerations. Firstly all our management are acutely aware of the real dangers to our environment caused by our industrial society, and we feel a moral obligation to play whatsoever small part we can to improve the current situation. Secondly as society as a whole becomes environmentally conscious it is obviously commercially prudent for the company to ensure that our products are sourced and manufactured in a way that will meet with our customers’ approval. All of our purchasing and operational decisions now take account of both these moral and commercial imperatives, and are under constant review.
The company is registered and operates under ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 regulations and continues to review and improve our work methods, systems and processes to reduce environmental impact to ourselves, our neighbours, and the environment.
