We recognize that the type of work we do can have a significant impact on the environment and has the potential to cause serious negative effects.

We have been fortunate to be involved in building projects in some highly environmentally sensitive areas and as a result have had the opportunity to work with many exceptional Environmental consultants.

These working relationships have contributed to developing an acute understanding of our impact on the environment and have refined our development and execution of control methods for every scenario.

We consider the environment in everything we do, from developing and executing effective mitigation plans, the maintenance of our fleet, even the biodegradable lubricants we use.

Our sites are clean and well maintained. We Care!

At Knappett Industries (2006) Ltd. we understand that we are representing not only ourselves but more importantly our customers at each job site.
