Raising money for charity...

Quality Equipment is a firm believer in supporting their local area using local suppliers and vendors where possible. As well as raising money for charities across the country both as a company and supporting our fantastic colleagues in their efforts to do this. 

Most recently, Frank Barrett our Workshop Manager cycled the length of Great Britain, from Lands End to John O’Groats! We sponsored Frank, and supported him all the way visiting him at various checkpoints and holding a celebration event once his legs recovered! This was in aid of East Anglian Air Ambulance & SERV.

Quality Equipment employees have also participated in events such as the Mud Run. Which I can assure you, was indeed very muddy! Raising money for other causes such as Breast Cancer.

Sponsoring local sports...

Generally speaking, we have a lot of employees interested in a sport of some kind. Be it football, golf, formula 1 or horse racing you’ll be in good company! Quality Equipment has sponsored the Diss Rugby Club multiple times and attended their events with a table for the day! it’s a cracking day out and all in the company are welcome. 

When it comes to the Euros, World Championships or any major sporting event we get behind the Nation and host viewing parties to get a crowd of our own together and watch it on the big screen with pizza, beer and plenty of cheering!

We are environmentally conscious

With the national emphasis focusing on energy-saving and the reduction of greenhouse gases QE is now involved in heat recovery and energy conservation in both its new and refurbished buildings. We use energy-saving materials where possible and the environmentally friendly recycled plastic panel, Paneltim as often as possible. Ensuring we follow all Environmental Agency standards and in most cases exceed those recommendations. Our in-house designed automated feeding technology has helped to save the lives of thousands if not millions of piglets over the course of time we strive to reduce the mortality of pigs ensuring the highest standard of health and care for animals. It doesn’t end there either! Quality Equipment is constantly looking into ways to protect the environment locally and globally with our equipment.
