A Telford manufacturing company has been praised by the Prince of Wales for ‘creating a positive change for the environment’.

Chamber member Seymour Manufacturing International, which sells its range of temperature control and thermal insulation products around the world, received a letter from Prince William’s team at Kensington Palace.

The Prince was made aware of the company’s work, and the letter from his correspondence secretary said: “It was most interesting to learn how your products make significant energy and carbon savings.

The letter said: “The Prince was encouraged by your commitment to creating a positive change for the environment. I do hope that Seymour Manufacturing keeps up the good work.”

SMI has been saving energy and money for some of the world’s biggest and best-known businesses since the 1980s.

The company’s acclaimed Tempro, the world’s thinnest and most thermally-efficient material of its kind, has been scientifically proven to cut energy loss by at least 25% in chillers, and 33% in freezers.

SMI's headquarters is on the Stafford Park industrial estate.
