I had a very inspiring shoot for one of my good advertising clients, Publitek, last week at Midas Pattern Company in Bedford.

The photographs are primarily intended for use in trade press and will illustrate an article on the green benefits of the installation of a new Atlas Copco compressor by Anglian Compressors which has reduced Midas Pattern Company’s carbon footprint by some 60 tonnes per annum!

What I found particularly impressive was Midas Pattern Company’s recent green initiative which, besides upgrading their compressor, included; a policy of no single use plastics on site, a move to using all recycled and recyclable packaging, installation of 100% LED lighting throughout the factory, the provision of free EV charging for visitors and the use of green gas and electricity.

It was really encouraging to see a company so enthusiastically committed to the cause of saving the planet. Note to self: time to become vegan and invest in cargo bike (although sadly Bedford is probably a bit beyond the range of travelling by bicycle!)
