Marshall-Tufflex: Reassuringly Recycled

Take five employees, a collection of stunning South Coast beauty spots and a dog called Herbie and you have our brilliant new short film promoting our commitment to protecting the environment.

Entitled ‘A Window into Cable Management’, the production features members of Marshall-Tufflex staff from across the business taking part in activities they are passionate about in the outdoor environment, from dog walking to surfing, fishing to running, all set against gorgeous East Sussex locations including the Seven Sisters and Hastings Country Park.

The aim of the film is two-fold; to inform the market that our products are made from an average of 80% recycled material across PVC-U ranges and to give an insight into Marshall-Tufflex’s environmentally responsible philosophy and manufacturing process. Supporting the film launch is a series of press advertisements featuring each member of staff.

“The film perfectly captures the passion and commitment we have for the environment,” said Marshall-Tufflex Marketing Manager Katie Barnes. “It showcases the beauty of our locality brilliantly, which only serves to reinforce our desire to do all in our power to protect the environment. We’re very proud to be using our staff in the campaign; Hannah, Craig, Dave, Rob, Debbie and Herbie the dog, who star in the film, really enjoyed being part of this project and helping to tell Marshall-Tufflex’s great environmental story.”

We source the majority of our recycled plastic from the window industry – hence the campaign theme ‘A Window into Cable Management’. This top-grade PVC-U comprises waste material from manufacturing and fabrication activities and is stronger and more durable than extrusion grade virgin material.

“We’ve been using recycled plastic in our PVC-U products for more than 20 years,” added Katie. “Nothing has changed in terms of quality, strength, colour, finish or price and we divert thousands of tonnes of waste plastic from landfill each year. We’d like the rest of the industry to join us and commit to using recycled materials in their products by 2028.”

The short film was produced by the Drummer Agency, in Heathfield, East Sussex. Creative Director Toby Hamilton said: “By featuring members of the Marshall-Tufflex team in the campaign we were able to communicate their shared and common values in a really engaging and genuine way. We believe the end result is a powerful and emotive campaign that we sincerely hope will help Marshall-Tufflex achieve its environmental aims and bring about real change in their industry.”
