Another Successive Recycling Record Set by Armstrong

Good news for Armstrong Ceilings, as the company has achieved record-breaking levels in recycling for the second year on the run, seen with the recycling of some 142,000m2 over the course of last year, with a notable nine members of the company’s Omega network (approved installers) then showcasing their expertise in the field of recycling enough to quality as “Green Omegas”.

In total, the amount recycled has been estimates to have saved contractors approximately £100,000 in landfill tax, but also represents a great result in the field of corporate social responsibility. As for the materials recycled, these are presently, and will continue to be used entirely for the creation of mineral ceiling tiles, then serving to save the company in excess of £28,000 in materials.

Looking at to where we can attribute such success, it has been reported that it is specifically the Green Omegas network which has achieved great success in breaking the records, serving as a network of highly specialist subcontractors, both in the fields of traditional subcontracting as well as in that of recycling itself.

One of the Armstrong Omegas since, PFP, also then provided commentary on the Omega network through its Managing Director, Boyd Sinclair, who commented: “The benefits of becoming an Omega installer were the closer working relationship with Armstrong, PFP being recommended to clients by Armstrong for projects, and receipt of project leads from Armstrong.”

Also as a reputable installer of Armstrong products specifically, the company has seen considerable benefit in competing against organisations only offering labour services. Most notably, this providing an extra layer of confidence in the company when main contractors draw up comparisons between sourcing materials themselves, with labour-only operatives to deliver, against that of the company to offer a complete procurement and installation package – this is partially because it is very unlikely for the average labour-only subcontractor to actually be certified by Armstrong Omega.
