Now and again I visit a business that truly inspires me, yesterday was one of those days.
We were lucky enough to visit Vitsoe in Leamington Spa who are a manufacturer of furniture with a difference. Their whole ethos is furniture for life and as such they have sustainable furniture that has been going for circa 50 years, they help design the room layout for their customers too.
The building is a purpose built production and office site and has been designed and created with energy saving in mind. They have Solar PV, LED lighting which isn’t required due to the well designed architectural light that floods the facility. They are using green electric and gas and have adopted other technologies to save energy consumption.
We are fascinated by their vision and innovation with sustainability at the heart of their business. We were even treated to a wonderful lunch cooked by their in-house chef who caters for the whole site which is one of the staff perks. We met the managing director Mark who was a very humble man who has helped create such an inspiring culture.
We hope to work with them on fine tuning what little energy they consume.
Well done Vitsoe. Nathan.
