Ethical Manufacturing

C&C Trade Shutters is part of the TCMM Shutter Group Ltd. TCMM is committed to supplying quality made to measure shutters for the UK and USA retail consumer.  We recognise our responsibility to take a committed approach to slavery and human trafficking pursuant to the Modern Slavery Act of 2015. All our products are manufactured in fully owned UK based facilities or sourced from Chinese suppliers who are compliant with Sedex’s SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit) Audit. Our Audits are undertaken by Sedex’s approved auditors.

The TCMM Promise

TCMM undertakes due diligence when considering taking on new suppliers, and regularly reviews its existing suppliers. We frequently (Covid restrictions allowing) travel to China to meet with our manufacturing partners as do the Verisio auditors.

As part of the TCMM shutter group, we have greater access to a wider range of products, more efficient manufacturing, and therefore quicker delivery times, and also access to the whole of TCMM’s industry expertise. These products and expertise are passed on directly to you to ensure your shutter business is as successful as our own!

Sustainable Shutters

Our shutters are eco-friendly in more ways than one. First and foremost, we manufacture our shutters using hardwood that is predominantly sourced from sustainable forests. Not only this, they are harvested locally in the same province too. This ensures that less transport is required in the pre-manufacturing stage. And what’s more, by utilising vertical integration from supply through to output, we ensure complete control on every step of production, avoiding the use of middlemen and unnecessary links in manufacturing.

Did you know: Shutters help to make your home more eco-friendly too! Recent studies have found that by closing shutters in the evening, Victorian and Georgian homes can almost completely eliminate heat loss through the windows.
