Environmental Week: Gripsure secures exclusive contract



Gripsure becomes the exclusive UK distributor of sustainable MOSO® Bamboo decking and cladding

Cornish company, Gripsure, has become the UK’s exclusive distributor of MOSO® Bamboo, offering a natural building solution that combines sustainability and safety without compromising on style or performance.

Bamboo, as a resource, is one of the fastest growing plants in the world, with rapid renewability and a beautiful natural cycle in which harvesting bamboo stems improves the mother plant. Bamboo is quite truly an incredible plant. Not only this, but bamboo stores an immense amount of CO2 in the fibres itself, which is ultimately stored in the end product. These extremely fast-growing speeds, of up to 1 metre a day, make bamboo a beautiful alternative to scarce tropical hardwoods and so-called green composites.

Boasting best in class for its environmental credentials, strength, stability and longevity, bamboo makes for an ideal solution for a variety of applications, such as residential projects or high-traffic commercial areas.

Mike Nicholson, Managing Director of Gripsure, says “We want to reduce our overall carbon emissions as a business. We’re striving towards achieving carbon neutrality by 2025, working as part of a wider project with Cornwall Manufacturing Group, and becoming net zero by 2030. This means we are continually looking at new and different ways to minimise our environmental impact across our activities. We believe bamboo is the future and are delighted to be able to offer it exclusively in the UK as part of our growing product range.”

Gripsure were recently awarded with ISO 14001 certification for environmental management and ISO 9001 for quality management.
