1000th FSC Certificate Holder

Interface Continues Growing, 1000th FSC® Certificate Issued

Interface are incredibly excited to celebrate (even within the current climate) the milestones of our 20th year in business, and certifying our 1000th FSC Certificate Holder – pushing us closer to being the market leader in FSC Certification in the UK! As a small UK-based employee-owned certification body, Interface-NRM are rivalling the larger multinational bodies, capitalising on our USP of picking up the phone and being as helpful and responsive as possible.

We spoke to those involved at Preston Board and Packaging Ltd who transferred certification to Interface and became our 1000th Forest Stewardship Council certificate holder following the successful transfer their sister company, Romiley Board Mill. You’ll be interested to hear why so many Certificate Holders are not just acquiring certification with Interface, but also keep transferring over to us too.

Charles Ingham had this to say:

“I am very impressed by the proactive approach taken by the whole of the Interface NRM team.  Communication with our certification body is no longer the chore it was!”

Case study

Since 1981 Preston Board and Packaging have grown steadily to the point of manufacturing in excess of 20,000 tonnes of board per annum.

Operating two modern 2-meter-wide, 4 ply laminators, Preston Board have the ability to offer boards from 400um to 5000um. Paired with a suite of auxiliary equipment (die cutting, guillotining, rounding corners and punching holes) they can offer a diverse line of products from high-end, luxury packaging for graphical application to more industrial products such as transit sheets for the logistics industry and much more.

Romiley Board Mill became a part of the group in 1994, and now produce circa 55,000 tonnes of board per annum. This unique pairing of companies within the Preston Board group has allowed them to create a circular economy and reduce process waste down to zero.

It was this recognition of the social and economic import of making sustainable choices to protect the environment, paired with the market demands, that drove Preston Board to acquire FSC certification in 2011.

It was the proactive and responsive nature of Interface which drove Preston Board to choose us as their new certification body 10 years on from their FSC Main Assessment.
