To be the leading provider of sustainable water and climate management solutions for the built environment.
Our seven strategic objectives consist of two TARGET PRODUCT SECTORS and five STRATEGIC GROWTH DRIVERS, as described below:
We fulfil our vision though our day-to-day activities and through all aspects of the development of our business:
SUSTAINABLE WATER MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS
SUSTAINABLE CLIMATE MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS
Using engineered plastics rather than traditional materials such as concrete or clay can lead to innovative project solutions that offer transportation, installation and cost-saving benefits. As thermoplastic pipes are inherently lighter in weight than legacy materials, they are quicker and easier to install. Polypipe produces pipes and fittings utilising recycled materials where appropriate and all products are recyclable at the end of their useful life. These benefits, combined with Polypipe’s strong brand and technical expertise, offer potential for Polypipe’s propositions to penetrate further against legacy materials such as concrete, clay or copper pipes.
As legislation continues to tighten to meet the international performance targets on water management, air quality, carbon reduction, and city resilience, Polypipe continues its long-term investment into Water Management and Climate Management solutions. For example, Government planning policy has defined the need for sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) to ensure that flood risk is taken into account during all stages of the planning process. This planning policy is further interpreted into national frameworks, local legislation and regulations, which provide a dynamic legislative environment. Polypipe’s solutions are engineered to address these challenges, providing an effective controlled retention, attenuation or infiltration system to suit site-specific requirements.
Through our focused research and development, our proven design expertise, patented technologies, detailed understanding within our sectors and our own award-winning delivery fleet, Polypipe provides solutions that integrate the latest technologies to tackle challenges faced by design engineers and drive efficiencies in our internal processes.
Polypipe has extensive expertise in the plumbing, drainage and ventilation aspects of projects, and by working closely with specifying engineers, local authorities, and installation contractors, we provide a broad ranges of solutions that are value-engineered to reduce whole life costs (addressing ease of installation and cost of maintenance in service, for example) as well as providing a proven level of performance, and as such we provide a ‘one-stop shop’ proposition.
With Polypipe’s UK standard-based products, and the esteem that UK manufacturing is held in within a number of growing markets around the world, the Group seeks to expand in selected markets overseas. Many factors supporting Polypipe’s growth are not unique to the UK, such as urbanisation, managing water as a scarce resource, combined sewer systems already at capacity, urban island heat effect, and poor air quality.
Our track record of growth in the UK, along with our experience of working with the technology licensing model deployed by the Permavoid business, form the basis of a set of unique competencies across the Group, which position Polypipe well for future development outside the UK.
