Nordell have a long history of manufacturing for the Environmental & Renewables sector.


One of our longest standing manufacturing contracts is for the Vacuum Pumping sector, where we mould specialist parts used in Rotary Vane vacuum pumps. These vacuum pumps are used in many different industries including the manufacture of flat screen technology and Solar panels.


Many years ago, Nordell started working in partnership with a customer to develop domestic Wind Turbines. Wind turbines harness the power of the wind and use it to generate electricity. Nordell manufactures two different sizes of wind turbine, supporting the UK drive to net zero 2050.


With Environmental Sustainability and carbon reduction critical in the drive to net zero, Nordell is proud to be partnering with one of the UK’s fastest growing renewable technology companies, providing housing developers, construction companies and commercial businesses with a “one-stop-shop” of sustainable technology products and specialist services to accelerate the journey to net-zero. Nordell manufacture parts for the EV (Electric Vehicle) Charging and Solar technology markets.

Our Environmental Committment

With more and more customers insisting the goods they buy are environmentally friendly, it’s never been more important to work with manufacturing partners who are committed to sustainability.


Nordell is ISO14001 accredited and committed to manufacturing to protocols which improve sustainability through an effective environmental management system.


Innovation and investment in new technology, materials and moulding techniques will help you to deliver against long-term, sustainable environmental targets:


  • 800 Solar panels installed providing 270kw of renewable energy
  • Reducing scrap through process mapping and training to ensure we get more right first time.
  • Recycling scrap by regrinding it either for reuse or collection by a commercial plastic recycler.
  • Switching to electric moulding machines to reduce energy consumption by up to 70%.
  • Reducing energy consumption through replacement of our factory lighting with LED and motion sensors and by monitoring our power consumption.
  • We are at the forefront of Biomaterials innovation, with more options to replace current materials becoming available

Bio Plastics


Bio-plastics can reduce the environmental impact of your product’s raw materials. Nordell remain at the forefront of new raw material developments, and continue to develop new bio-plastic solutions.
