Business Practices and Achievements
Haystack pride themselves on utilising local supply chains and strive to reduce CO2 emissions with modern and environmentally aware manufacturing processes. The company is proud to have been accredited with Safe Contractor status to ensure the highest standard of health and saftey is being met in the factory and during customer installations.
The products themselves are engineered to be energy efficient and help companies reduce their carbon footprint. Air is recycled and cleaned to eliminate the requirement to constantly heat the ambient temperature. Our Turbodry® heater system has been designed and manufactured to be the most durable and reliable drying product in the market.
