We supply materials which are long lasting, and whilst they may cost a little more at the outset, this is far better than having to replace sooner than expected — especially with the additional costs that this would entail.
Calders & Grandidge, like all companies within the Saint-Gobain family, has a clear objective of being number one in whatever particular field it chooses to specialise in.
This does not happen overnight and can be measured in many different ways.
In our case when we say number one we are really referring to service, quality, value, environment and safety. If we get this right, then everything else should fall into place!
Our plan, therefore is quite simple…
To listen to our customers and give them what they want when they want it in a safe manner without any adverse impact to our environment.
Timber is at the heart of our business, and is truly the only renewable construction material on the planet. By ensuring that our purchases are from properly managed sustainable sources — ideally signed up to the FSC or PEFC Charter — we are helping to make sure that it remains so.
Similarly, timber treated under pressure for long life expectancy further supports the sustainability argument. One of our key objectives going forward is to ensure that the material we offer to you — our customer — is consistently fit for the purpose intended – especially if its ultimate end use is in ground contact.
