DMDesign boosts its Green Credentials

Scottish firm DM Design has just invested £250,000 in a biomass boiler at its head office in Cumbernauld, Scotland. The Fitted Bedroom specialists will now incredibly save the equivalent of 50 large skiploads of landfill each year. The ultra-high-spec 150kW boiler is in fact cleverly fed with wood from old kitchen and bedroom units which have been removed from customers’ homes.

The unit also assists in removing dust ensuring the 30-strong factory team have a clean working environment. Operations director Ben Taylor is delighted with the installation. He enthused, “Putting in a biomass boiler was a no brainer. It saves 50 large skips-worth of waste going to landfill, heats our entire factory and lowers our heating bill by up to £10,000 a year.”
