CUPA PIZARRAS has been awarded Roofing Supplier of the Year at the Homebuilding & Renovating Industry Awards 2021.
The company’s sustainable and innovative portfolio of natural slate, as well as its excellent service and support, were both instrumental in its success.
The standard of the products and services offered by CUPA PIZARRAS was initially recognised by the awards panel and attained a place on the shortlist, before winning the necessary number of public votes to win the title.
CUPA PIZARRAS supplies one out of every two natural roofing slates around the world.
A completely natural material, the slate undergoes a careful extraction process, before being passed through a processing plant, which combines modern technology with traditionally skilled crafts people.
The product is also regularly examined by external authorities certifying that the slate meets various national and continental standards.
Pursuing methods which avoid environmental damage has been consistently prioritised by CUPA PIZARRAS. Although natural slate is already an ecological choice, the company has invested heavily to reduce its energy consumption and CO2 emissions. As such, and according to the Carbon Trust, CUPA PIZARRAS is now the first in the slate industry to be a carbon-neutral company.
Furthermore, the business utilises an innovative traceability system, enabling distributors and customers to discover specific information about all products in real time, even down to details of the hand splitter that worked on that particular batch.
