Core values With a background in mining, tunnelling and construction industries, and yet passionate about environmental impact, Manvers Engineering Ltd is always striving to develop products that allows others to contribute to greener construction. Masses of time, energy and money go into research and development. This, combined with the dedication of staff, ensures the products are constantly evolving to offer greater efficiency and keep up with high customer expectations as environmental solutions become ever-more important. A great deal of thought, care and attention goes into the British manufactured product, with raw materials and labour sourced locally when possible, with a large proportion of the process being conducted “in house” at the premises in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. Looking to the future Manvers Engineering Ltd is keen to further develop the Plant Nappy idea and branch out, working on other products that would be useful in the field of spill control and environmental protection. Manvers Engineering is eager to push boundaries and find scientifically advanced solutions to environmental problems that have previously been too difficult to tackle. This dedication and drive is what makes this company stand out. Many new products are currently in the pipeline that will further expand the product range under the well trusted Plant Nappy brand, offering customers more choice and tailored products for their specific needs while of course keeping environmental protection at the forefront of the new designs.

into the environment free from contaminants. Any oil caught in the Plant Nappy cannot be easily tipped out by an operator although the oil can be forcibly removed if the intention is to reuse the Plant Nappy following a spillage (disposing of any oil in a controlled environment). Construction consists of: l Base layer – the base layer is a non- permeable layer that acts as a barrier between contaminated liquid and the ground. l Internal base – this offers rapid adsorption of oils and fuels, but more importantly traps them in one place. l Side wall – allows rainfall to escape at a Environmental protection is at the heart of everything we strive to achieve. We feel that this award will catapult our stature in the spill industry, at home and abroad, recognising our company’s commitment to excellence
