Howick constantly strives to build not only the best and most environment friendly steel framing machines, but to build in a way that is sustainable and environment friendly. Howick machines work smarter - not harder - with lower energy consumption which is both good for the environment and the bottom line.
Steel has the unique advantage of being able to be recycled as often as required without losing any of its inherent strength or properties.
Steel framing, off-cuts and even the Howick machines can be recycled at the end of their lifecycle.
As our machines are compact and efficient, the power required to produce the framing is significantly less than larger machinery.
Parts are manufactured close to the assembly plant and the low volume of freighting required for Howick machines makes them a more environment friendly machine.
All Howick, machines are fitted with energy efficient drive motors that comply with all European and international standards and surpass the EFF1 limit value.
Howick frame machines automatically switch off components not in use to lessen power consumption and reduce carbon emissions.
All Howick machinery is CE certified and fitted with EMC filters to ensure it not only meets all safety standards but is environmentally friendly.
All scrap steel, paper, cardboard, lubricant and waste oil from the manufacturing process is recycled, while all outsourced manufacturing data has been replaced with an electronic paperless system.
