Our Responsibilites

At WFEL we work hard to ensure that we act and trade as a socially responsible, ethical and environmentally friendly business.
Our Environment

We have an active aluminium recycling policy and are committed to an effective and ISO accredited Environmental Management System (EMS).

Our procedures and practices are subject to continuous review to ensure we maintain the highest environmental performance standards and we are dedicated to meeting or exceeding all applicable legislation and codes of practice.

Our Community

We have been based at the same site in Heaton Chapel, Stockport, UK for more than 75 years and we remain an important employer and take our responsibility for nurturing local engineering talent seriously.

Our factory is home to one of the UK’s only advanced aluminium welding schools and in 2011 we started a new graduate internship research programme with Manchester Business School.

WFEL has also been a proud supporter of Stockport’s famous Fairey Brass Band for more than 70 years.
Our industry

As a company which exports its products to almost 40 different countries worldwide trading equitably and transparently has become a cornerstone of our business.

All of our employees are asked to adhere to our eight point Anti Corruption Code which has been closely aligned to several territory specific jurisdictions, including the UK’s Bribery Act (2010) and the US’ Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
