COP26 is taking over news headlines around the World as countries are pledging to reduce carbon emissions and do more to reduce, reuse and recycle.

So, what are we doing here at Allen to reduce our impact on the planet?

In mid 2019 we introduced our first eco-friendly block range  The plain bearing block range.

This range of blocks was introduced as a replacement to our classic plain bearing range which had become outdated, uneconomical to manufacture and not great for the environment.

The new range of plain bearing blocks are made using 100% recycled plastic as well as using 20% less material than the previous version. The range also utilises the the outer cheek and ultra-strap design from the 20 & 30mm dynamic range. This allows us to manufacture the new range of plain bearing blocks more efficiently by producing bigger batches of parts with less wastage.
