Eco Boards

Boards made from recycled plastic 
and then recycled to use again

Key facts about plastic

  • Last year 27 million tonnes of plastic went to landfill.
  • 95% of plastic was thrown away after a single use.
  • Globally more than 8 million tonnes of plastic ended up in our oceans.
  • 91% of all plastic is never recycled.


Kremer Signs are the largest producer of estate agents boards in the UK, producing almost 1,000,000 boards each year. After many years of development work with our key material suppliers, we now have a tried and tested Fluted board that is not only made from recycled plastic, but a board that after many uses can be returned to us for recycling.
 
Our 4mm board used to produce T Boards has a grey backing to stop any show through with a bright white front, our 6mm Flag Board material is bright white and fully recyclable.

Grey back eco board totally eliminates any show through from the reverse of the board

Creating a circular economy

Reground fluted PP sheet ready for reprocessing

Trulli
  • We have almost zero waste when our sheet is manufactured with all off cuts being reprocessed.
  • When our boards are recycled, the higher grade pellets are used to produce our recycled sheet. Lower grade pellets are used to make items such as garden planters and furniture, compost bins and vehicle parts including car bumpers. It is also used to manufacture the dreaded speed bumps.
  • During the recycling process, the PP granules are re-heated to 400 degrees, unlike other plastics PP does not give off toxic gases during the process.
  • It is accepted that polypropylene can be recycled up to 4 times before there is a negative impact on the materials structure.

Our mission statement to you

As a signage company we know we have a serious responsibility to the environment to ensure our industry’s future and we are continuously working on ways to reduce our impact of plastic waste and operating more sustainably. We believe in a greener future!

We are the only national board supplier, printing on recycled material with its unique grey back and are the only company that offer a national recycling service free of charge (T&C’s apply). This is a service that we offer to all of our clients; if we are delivering boards on our own transport, we will collect any waste boards from your board erector during the delivery, to ensure the end of life boards avoid landfill.

As of 2021 ALL of our customers will be switched to this eco-friendly correx as standard, which is going to be a game changer for the industry. Our aim is to gain as much business as possible, producing UK estate agents boards more sustainably, so that the industry’s carbon footprint is reduced on a national scale. Our pledge to the environment goes back a long way and has been reviewed annually for many years.

As well as improving our own products and practices, we will encourage board erectors and other industry suppliers to minimise their negative impact on the environment.

We hope this will result in a huge improvement with the property sector’s environmental efforts.

What our customers say

“The team at Kremer Signs has been incredibly helpful, particularly Tom Cummuskey. We recently had a rebrand across our nation-wide firm and have been heavily supported by the team. Their exclusive Eco-Friendly boards played a big part in choosing them as a supplier, as our environmental responsibilities as a multi office network is very important to us. Tom has been incredibly patient during the whole process and was a great help with a few last-minute issues we faced. We highly recommend Kremer Signs!”
Paris Allen – Marketing Manager of Carter Jonas
 
“Most of us are fully aware of the devastating effects that both climate change and plastic waste are having on our environment, so sourcing an eco-friendly solution for the property boards we use is extremely important to us and we appreciate that this passion is equally as important to our customers. This business investment plays a small part in the bigger goal, of the whole company becoming carbon neutral. We have partnered with Kremer Signs who have made this possible, by working very closely with their material supplier to produce the perfect eco-board.”
Kiersty Sims – Marketing Director of Leaders Romans Group
 
“I've been working with Kremer Signs for many years. Gary is a pleasure to deal with and always happy to help and assist. The quality of boards Kremer Signs produce are second to none. When we rebranded our boards back in 2019, we had them produced using Kremer’s Eco Boards which didn’t compromise the quality at all and in fact enhanced them. This was a great hit with our vendors and the change over proved to be a successful marketing campaign. I'd highly recommend them to others.”
Pernilla Tweddle – Marketing Director of Hunters

More than just signs



International Beach Clean Day

In conjunction with the Marine Conservation Society and as part of Kremer Signs ongoing environmental efforts as a company, we volunteer every year to carry out a beach clean, as part of International Beach Clean Day, which is usually held in September.
 
These pictures are from our chosen beach in 2019, Meon Beach in Fareham, Hampshire. When possible, we choose a different beach every year, to help in the worst affected areas.
 
We use our brand name and social media platforms to help raise awareness of these issues and the opportunities we all have to volunteer. This all helps towards a future with cleaner oceans.
