Statement from the Contract Furniture Group regarding Covid-19

25th March 2020

To help halt the spread of the Covid-19 virus, the Contract Furniture Group has temporarily suspended its regular manufacturing, delivery and installation services. This action has been taken to protect the health and safety of our own team, our customers' teams, and anyone else we may have otherwise come into contact with at this very difficult time.

If any of our customers do have reason to request our assistance please do not hesistate to get in touch through the usual channels. Despite the current state of 'lockdown', we will still try to help in any way we can. Any and all activity that can be carried out virtually, such as project planning, product selection and costing, will continue via online communications or telephone. We can be reached via;

T: 0115 965 9030
E: info

Please be assured that we are open for business at this difficult time and we will continue to deliver stock if required via our external carriers that are still working through these difficult times. We will update this message if this situation changes.

We will look to resume standard operations as quickly as possible, and will therefore assess the potential to do so after each official update. Hopefully the unprecidented government intervention will have the desired effect of having us all back to work as soon as possible. Until then, from all of us here at the Contract Furniture Group, we hope you remain safe and well.

Contract Furniture & The Environment

May 22nd, 2017

Striving to be a more environmentally friendly furniture company doesn’t stop at producing hard wearing pieces with longevity. Advances in technology have provided ways for us to be more energy efficient along the whole manufacturing process. The main area we have worked on over the years is how we process and recycle wood off cuts. We’re really proud of our efforts to be a greener, more sustainable manufacturer; from recycling our timber, to burning our waste wood cleanly and safely to create energy.

Recycling wood with our biomass operation

We inevitably have left over wood in our furniture manufacturing process, and our in-house biomass operation enables us to recycle our waste beech wood efficiently, by shredding it and converting into heat pellets for use in biomass-fired boilers. Sustainable electricity and heat is created by burning the wood chip biomass pellets in hot water or steam boilers, in the same way coal, natural gas and oil would be, but with dramatically lower CO2 emissions involved.

Our clean air burner

Our clean air burner enables us to reuse waste wood by-product by burning it in smokeless or smoke free zones. The process provides sustainable heating for our buildings, helping us to save resources and avoid using fossil fuels. This process also brings us in line with the Clean Air Act 1993.
