We’ve launched our net zero plans

We have recently unveiled our vision for the future including sustainability and reducing the environmental impact of our manufacturing process.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is key to our ongoing success.

Another successful 50 years in business

We’ve had a successful 50 years in business, and we want to have another 50 years, and even more, so to do this, we must become more environmentally friendly and move with the times. We’ve recently worked with some larger companies, which has helped us focus our attention on understanding our carbon footprint. Not only is this planet positive, but it also makes good commercial sense too as it is becoming increasingly common to have to report such data in tenders.

Recruiting Millennials and Generation Zs

We have also recruited many Millennials and Generation Zs into our team, and they have a different, but wonderful, mindset and have helped increase our awareness of the environment and the need to project a positive image. COP 26 and subsequent government legalisation has also intensified the need for action and we’re right behind this.

We are currently undertaking a review of our carbon footprint, highlighting usage and output. There has also been an internal review to assess the measures we can control ourselves.

Waste management reviews

We have been accredited to the Environmental Standard ISO14001 since 2004 and as part of that process we regularly undertake waste management reviews, which have resulted in an increase of recycling across the company, a reduction of the amount of waste sent to landfill to proportion of goods sold, the installation of recycling stations across each area of the business, and increasing employee awareness. Other measures we have taken include optical character recognition (OCR) to reduce paper usage and storage, ongoing replacement of lighting to LED, upgrading buildings to improve energy efficiency and, post Covid, continuing to engage with our customers and suppliers online rather than in person.

Our vehicle fleet

As well as all of this, we have also moved all company cars over to hybrid models and are reviewing the effectiveness of migrating our vehicle fleet to electric. We are also looking to create sustainability champions within our work force to help increase employee awareness and engagement, backed up with ongoing training.

We’ve celebrated our 50th anniversary

Jasun Blog

We recently celebrated our 50th anniversary and were honoured to receive visits from the Mayor of Bridgwater to our Somerset site and the Mayor of Havant to our Waterlooville site.

We are absolutely thrilled to be celebrating 50 years in business and were delighted to welcome the Mayor of Bridgwater, Councillor Liz Leavy, as our VIP for the day to our Bridgwater HQ. She was able to meet our Founder, Mrs Barbara Foot, and have a guided tour of our production facility, as well as joining us for lunch and to have a slice of celebration cake with our team and directors.


Our Waterlooville site also had a special visit from the Mayor of Havant, Councillor Diana Patrick, who had a guided tour of our service facility, lunch and a slice of celebration cake with us too.

It’s a fantastic achievement to have successfully completed five decades in business. In that time, we’ve expanded worldwide and have significant operations in Europe too. We’re going from strength to strength and have lots more to come in the future, with exciting times ahead to look forward to as well.

Andy Parkhouse from Taunton is celebrating after clocking up 25 years working with us.

The 56-year-old joined our team in 1997 and currently works in sales.

Celebrating a milestone

He says: “I am thrilled to be celebrating such a milestone and would like to thank the rest of the team for being so supportive and to the management for the gift vouchers.

“My job is so varied, and every day is different, so I never know what’s coming next and that is what still makes it interesting after 25 years. I really enjoy being able to help people with their enquiries and I hope to continue doing what I do for many more years to come.”

A truly valued member of the team

We’d like to say a huge ‘congratulations’ to Andy on his long service. He is a truly valued member of the team. We’d like to thank him for his hard work and dedication over the years.

Congrats to Janine too

We’d also like to congratulate Janine Russell, our Senior Production Operative, who is celebrating 20 years with us. We presented Janine with gift vouchers to mark her milestone and to thank her for her commitment and dedication to our business too.
