Catfoss are proud to be a certified member of ‘Made in Britain’, a registered collective mark that signifies that the products we supply have been manufactured in Great Britain. A Made in Britain product supports both local and national economies and creates and maintains jobs in the UK.
Made in Britain is a Not-for-Profit organisation that works tirelessly with the UK government to promote British manufacturing and sustainable growth in the industry. For a manufacturer and its products to be certified by Made in Britain, a company has to meet certain standards of operation, such as:
Reduction in Carbon Footprint
It has never been more important than now for companies to take responsibility for their contribution to the national and global carbon footprint. Simply through manufacturing products for the United Kingdom, in the United Kingdom, we are already drastically reducing the carbon emissions produced in its manufacture and distribution.
When assessing both the safety and quality of a product, it is far easier to do so when a company is 20 miles away rather than 200 or even 2000! Made in Britain products inevitably come under greater and more frequent scrutiny which ultimately means far fewer potentially inferior products entering UK markets.
UK Job Growth
It really is simple mathematics: An increase in UK manufacturing means a wider breadth of UK based jobs available to UK residents, which in turn supports UK individuals & families, bolsters local communities and the national economic strength on the global market.
Excellent Employee Working Conditions
At Catfoss we know that the linchpin of any business is its workforce. The UK has world-leading legislation on standards of Health & Safety and every UK business should be able to prove it adheres to these fundamental laws.
Promotes Skill Development
As the UK economy develops and adapts, so must the people at the helm. A larger quantity of UK jobs affords a greater need for skilled workers with in-demand specialisms as well as greater flexibility for those individuals seeking to develop new skills, qualifications and certifications.
