Spectre launches a sustainability bid

Another Win for Sustainability – Spectre Launches Tubs Made With 30% Recycled Plastic 

Spectre may still be the new kid on the screw block but that doesn’t mean they’re not all in… Ready to take the UK by storm, the company’s latest launch proves that Spectre is fully committed to getting their foot in the market in a sustainable way – what more could we ask for? 

Spectre, the range designed to bring a combination of unparalleled performance and exceptional value to its customers, has launched a new selection of 100% recyclable tub packaging made with a minimum of 30% recycled plastic. 

Speaking of the new tub range, Brian Trevaskiss, Spectre’s Head of Product and Sustainability, says: 

“This packaging has been specifically designed to offer merchants and end users flexibility in terms of how they purchase our products. Our research told us builders still love tubs, they provide waterproof storage and are reusable and recyclable. Using 30% recycled plastic is better for the environment and means no ‘plastic tax’.” 

The reusable tubs, crammed to the brim with Spectre’s Advanced Wood Screws, are made from 30% recycled plastic and come in packs of 300, 450, 600, 900, 1200 and 1400. Each tub also comes with a pack of two Spectre screwdriver bits, especially designed to make life easier for the trades. 

The move to tubs is part of an overall drive by Spectre and other ranges in the ForgeFix family of brands to reduce their carbon footprint – something that has been weighing heavily on the construction industry’s mind, from manufacturers all the way to your local carpenter. 

To show off their newest products, and the instantly recognisable Spectre brand, point-of-sale stands will also be available up and down the country, giving both merchants and customers alike a chance to see it with their own eyes before committing to an order.
