First FSC Certified WPC Product supplier to the Timber Window Industry

Mighton Products, headquartered in Cambridge, is celebrating after becoming the UK’s first company to offer Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified wood plastic composite (WPC) products to the timber window and door industry.

The company, which is the leading manufacturer and distributor of products specially designed for timber sash and casement windows, can now supply WPC products under its FSC® certification – a UK first. FSC is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests. Mighton, who already holds FSC® certification, is now able to offer WPC products under the accreditation.

Mightonite™ is a mixture of durable PVC and wood flour that Mighton has used to develop a range of products suitable for the timber sash window, casement window and door industry. The FSC® certification authenticates the wood mixture, setting it apart from other WPC products. The company is launching a full range of the globally recognised FSC® approved WPC products. The umbrella product, Mightonite™ will be used to make Mightybead™, brought to market 18 months ago, and the newly launched Mightycill™ – making Mighton the first UK company to launch a range of WPC cills. Mighton has trademarked both Mightonite and the products it makes, Mightybead and Mightycill™. The products are all extruded profiles and include: staff beads, parting beads, glazing beads and Cills for sash windows; glazing beads and Cills for casement windows; and thresholds for doors” Mike Derham, Mighton Chairman, said: “We’re pleased to bring the Mightonite range of products to the market, starting with our Mightybead and Mightycill™ ranges. We knew that we had a market-leading product on our hands and the fact that we have the UK’s first FSC certified WPC products to the timber window trade is the icing on the cake. “The benefits to the joinery trade are huge – Mightonite represents a new product for the industry, offering a highly durable, fully tested and FSC certified alternative to traditional external timber beads and cills.”

Mark Fortune, Managing Director added: “We’re committed to delivering innovative, high quality products to meet the ever changing needs of the timber sash window, casement window and door industry.

“If a customer can’t find what they need in our current range, we’ll work with them to create something bespoke.”
