Assured Composite® Presents the Best of Composite Decking

Assured Composite® ensures customer happiness by providing high-quality wood plastic composite decking, to consumers across the United Kingdom and beyond.

Leicestershire, England – UK | January 25, 2022 — Customer satisfaction is ensured by Assured Composite®, which provides high-quality wood plastic composite decking, to customers in the United Kingdom and beyond. Because of their forward-thinking staff’s attention to efficiency, quality, and customer service, customers can anticipate a hassle-free end-to-end solution at an exceptional price. Because of their enormous inventory, a vast selection of goods, and incomparable guarantees, they’ve grown into one of the most successful composite enterprises in the United Kingdom.

What sets composite decking and cladding apart is the way it is designed. The individual panels of the composite cladding may be joined together using interlocking panels on the sides of the cladding. Rather than composite cladding, Composite decking has a lot to offer.

When building decks or patios, a lot of homeowners choose to use composite decking. It allows users the opportunity to carry out their regular routines on it.

Because of their minimal care requirements and cheap cost of ownership, low-maintenance composite decking solutions are an excellent choice for any outdoor environment. Customer trust is bolstered by the team’s commercial and residential warranties, which are 10 and 25 years long, respectively, enabling them to compete with the competition.

The three main varieties of tough and durable composite decking are each distinguished by a unique set of characteristics and a variety of colors to complement your home’s interior design. A unique 3D embossed wood grain finish or a grooved channel finish is available in the team’s reversible deck boards, which can be fitted to any garden deck, whether it is for residential or commercial use.

In addition, the users may put up tables and chairs on the composite decking to throw a party. Composite decking offers a favorable strength-to-weight ratio. The users may infer from this that humans standing atop composite panels will not be crushed by their own weight.

They can attach composite decking boards side by side on a joist or frame using clips and bolts to form a multi-level decking. Composite decking may expand and compress as it ages because of the space between the panels.

About Assured Composite®:

Assured Composite® supplies consumers in the UK and worldwide with high-quality wood plastic composite cladding. Customers can look forward to a seamless end-to-end solution at an excellent price because of the company’s forward-thinking focus on efficiency, quality, and customer service.

Global Essential Oil Maker Installs Rapid On-demand Steam, Reducing Energy Cost Per Kilo by 32%

The boiler Young Living Farms was using at its Highland Flats Distillery was not nearly as efficient as it needed to be for a global leader in essential oils. Young Living replaced its single 500HP firetube boiler at the Highland Flats Distillery with TWO Clayton 150 HP boilers. When the new boiler solution went online the efficiency skyrocketed, and energy savings were significant.

Los Angeles, CA – USA | December 23, 2021 — Young Living Farms, headquartered in Lehi, Utah is an acknowledged leader in its field, producing some of the best essential oils in the world. Fueled by a growing demand for top-quality essential oils, it now has offices in Australia, Europe, Canada, Japan, and Singapore – and farms located around the world. Young Living sells its products through a global network of member distributors, so maintaining inventory and controlling costs is imperative.

“The older firetube boiler Young Living had been using at its Highland Flats Distillery in Naples, Idaho, was not nearly as efficient as it needed to be for a global leader in essential oils,” said Mario Talavera, Sr., Western Regional Sales Manager for Clayton Industries.

That is due to the ratio of having to heat 3,000 gallons of water up to 70 pounds per square inch of steam pressure from a cold start or dry start – which would take up to five or more hours using the old system. Plus, the firetube boiler required an additional hour to bleed off the steam at shutdowns to leave it in a safe, depressurized, risk-free state.

“A colleague who managed our Northern Lights Distillery in Fort Nelson, British Columbia, had been talking with me about switching from the firetube boiler to a steam boiler from Clayton,” said Young Living Farms executive director Brett Packer. “He said it worked more like on-demand steam and is much safer and more efficient.”

Young Living replaced its single 500HP firetube boiler at the Highland Flats Distillery with TWO Clayton 150 HP boilers. When the new boiler solution went online the efficiency skyrocketed, and energy savings were significant, because with rapid on-demand steam generators they can now go from totally cold to full-steam output in roughly five minutes.

“When I reported the numbers, people didn’t believe me,” Packer said, reporting that “Switching to Clayton boilers resulted in a 32+% reduction in the cost of fuel and utilities per kilo of oil, which is the unit we use to measure production. We also gained significant production efficiencies. Clayton boilers reduced our operators’ hours by 10%.”

A two-generator advantage

With both boilers fitting in the same footprint as the old system’s 500 HP firetube boiler, Young Living gained another advantage: they could have one generator running and one generator for backup. “If there would ever be a problem, having a backup allows us to keep production going while we take time to identify the issue and correct it,” Packer said.

Being able to adjust to harvest changes within minutes supported Young Living’s need for flexible manufacturing.

Increased efficiency through rapid on-demand steam operation and incredibly low emissions levels were key reasons why the company chose to replace the old firetube boiler with a new pair of steam boilers. Production flexibility was another critical advantage.

The Clayton steam generators allowed the facility in Naples, Idaho, to adjust to harvest changes minute to minute. Packer said that with the rapid on-demand steam generators, they could adjust steam pressures as needed in just seconds – depending on the material demand and stages of production. The new boilers can fully supply needed steam demand, from completely shut down to fully operational, in five minutes. In contrast, the old boiler had a 90 minute or longer turnaround time window to fire up or shut down.

“Distilling pure essential oils is a meticulous process,” Packer said. “The quality of the steam from Clayton boilers is 99.5% dry, so it’s ideal for steam extraction and has increased our yields. Ever since the Clayton install at Highland Flats, we’ve been able to supply all needed inventory levels of the oils from three conifer species we provide to our distribution center. These oils get blended into hundreds of Young Living finished goods, including a top-10, best-selling product out of all of Young Living’s product lines.”

About Young Living Farms:

Established in 1993, Young Living is committed to providing pure, powerful products, all infused with their essential oils’ life-changing benefits. It designed and built the largest, most technologically advanced essential oil distilleries in North America. They also developed a proprietary, groundbreaking Seed to Seal® process, which preserves the integrity and potency of essential oils through every step of the production process.

About Clayton Industries:

Clayton Industries is a leading global manufacturer of industrial steam boilers and industrial process steam generation products. Clayton’s unique controlled circulation counter-flow design offers many operational advantages, energy efficiencies and other benefits over other industrial steam boilers. Its control systems are built with the latest technology. Established in 1930, and headquartered in City of Industry, California, Clayton serves diverse worldwide markets from its industrial steam boiler manufacturing facilities in the United States, Belgium, and Mexico.

(Caption: The two Clayton I50 HP boilers fit in the same footprint as the single 500 HP firetube boiler they were replacing. Young Living Farms could now have one generator running and one generator for backup. With the new boilers’ fast reaction time, steam could be produced on demand for morning production – resulting in an immediate 32+% energy savings.)

AMCA, The ‘Gold Standard’ of American Quality Expands Internationally

America’s gold standard of quality certification for the U.S. manufacturing sector storms into international markets.

New York, NY, USA | September 27, 2021 — AMCA (, the first pro-American quality certification program for U.S. manufacturers is spreading its message across the globe. Today, the inspiring company announced its ambitious plans in making U.S. manufacturers more competitive in the global marketplace by utilizing the country’s superior technology, innovation and talent diversity from around the world.

According to an AMCA spokeswoman, the company launched its ‘Buy American Movement’ campaign to promote U.S. manufacturers, machine shops and other industrial suppliers nationally and internationally. The campaign focuses on AMCA’s growing reputation as the Gold Standard of American Quality as seen at

America must become a larger producer of high quality, innovative products and technologies without relying so much on imported goods,” said LaBelle

AMCA Certification: The ‘Gold Standard’ of Quality For U.S. Manufacturers

AMCA’s bold pro-American quality certification program challenges ISO’s foreign standards in the U.S. marketplace.

Boston, MA – USA | September 14, 2021 — In memory of 9/11, on the 20th anniversary of one of America’s darkest days, AMCA announced launch of its new pro-American quality certification program at

Founded by Donald LaBelle, AMCA was developed as a customized quality certification exclusively for U.S. based manufacturers, machine shops, distributors and other industrial suppliers. The certification comes at a much needed time as fake ISO certificates are flooding the market overshadowing legitimate ISO registrations.

According to LaBelle ISO certificates are easily faked because there is a serious lack of true oversight. Any unethical person or seedy organization can legally print up ISO certifications of any standard, slap on bogus accreditation seals, and sell them like candy to naive businesses,” said LaBelle.

“I’ve seen numerous manufacturers using fake ISO certificates they purchased online without meeting any of ISO’s compliance guidelines,” said LaBelle. He added, “It was shocking to see even numerous federal government contractors landing multi-million dollar contracts using an ISO certificate they purchased online from a mail order ‘certificate mill.’ They literally received the certificate overnight.”

AMCA was not established to replace ISO certification as the they are different standards that compliment each other. AMCA focuses on revitalizing the U.S. manufacturing sector and increasing the global competitiveness of American made products. Whereas ISO certification is based on ‘international standards’ with no preference to the United States. In contrast, AMCA is boldly pro-American adapting the ‘Buy American Act’ into its standards, among other requirements for certification.

US-based manufacturers, machine shops, distributors and other industrial suppliers can submit an application for certification at

About AMCA:

AMCA (American Made Customer Accredited) is the first pro-American quality certification for the U.S. manufacturing sector.

Royal Caribbean Awards Handling Specialty its Largest Fixed Price Contract in 58-Year History

Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, 2021-Jul-05 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — To have recently landed a project that can be identified as a company’s largest fixed price contract in its long history is reason enough to celebrate, but when it’s with a corporation who is intimately familiar with your work and company values, that validates an organization’s processes from sales and engineering to manufacturing, installation and service.

Handling Specialty made history in 1995 when it was contracted to produce the underwater stage lift system for Cirque du Soleil at the Bellagio, in Las Vegas. The ‘O’ show continues to perform 2 shows per night after 24 years on the original Handling Specialty lift systems. It is an extraordinary engineering feat from a world class SME located in the heart of Niagara, in Grimsby, Ontario.

Since that monumental moment for the company, several underwater stage lift systems have been designed, built and installed into multiple theatres including the City of Dreams theatre, which runs The House of Dancing Water show in Macau. This epic undertaking gained Handling Specialty a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Handling Specialty is the world leader in underwater theatrical spectacles, and is installing systems all over the world. They are also flown to remote vacation locations to provide highly skilled technicians to repair or maintain these multi million-dollar systems efficiently to ensure that the show(s) go on.

This latest win for the company is the accumulation of an almost 20-year relationship designing and building for Royal Caribbean International. “This project began 2.5-years ago with technical sales and conceptual engineering leading the charge to win this prestigious venture,” says Tom Beach, President of Handling Specialty and the lead sales associate on this project. “We cherish our relationship with Royal Caribbean and with a revenue stream via new builds, service, and dry dock overhauls that will last over 10-plus-years, we understand what it takes to keep our customers happy.”

Handling Specialty’s turnkey solutions for Royal Caribbean includes conceptual engineering and contract settlements to full design including all electrical and hydraulic networks, custom stage flooring, installation, training, commissioning and on-going MRO.

“Experience goes a long way in winning a project as large as this,” Beach goes on to say. “Deploying professionals and skilled technicians to Finland over the next 6 years to install our equipment will be a challenge, but we’ve completed similar scenarios many times before.”

In March of 2021, Handling Specialty sent a team of technicians to Barbados where they quarantined on the Allure of the Seas for 14 days, one of the Oasis class of ships, and then performed planned maintenance on the ship’s underwater stage lift equipment. This same group of people went on to Spain where they completed similar work on Harmony of the Seas. Freighting the parts and flying people to these locations during a pandemic and successfully completing the work ahead of schedule is another nod to Handling Specialty’s abilities to organize massive projects and perform the work without interruption. It also speaks to the quality of the people working at Handling Specialty, and the lengths they will go to, to see a job through.

“Having worked together for almost 20 years on our Oasis class ships, I’m thrilled to be partnering with Handling Specialty again.” – Christopher Vlassopulos, Superintendent SLVR & Architectural Lighting for Royal Caribbean International & Celebrity Cruises, says.

The financial impact on the Niagara-based company is a welcome one. Entertainment industry builds have been scarce through the pandemic and to come out the other end with a project of this size is a boost to company moral and another nod to Handling Specialty’s impressive track record designing and building stage lift systems for the entertainment industry.

Beach says of the future, “I feel certain that Handling Specialty will continue our relationship with Royal Caribbean International and international ship yards for decades.”

Since 1963, Handling Specialty has been exclusively dedicated to the custom design and manufacture of your material handling systems & equipment for demanding applications. We are the premier source for made to order lifting, tilting, rotating and traversing equipment for clients seeking innovative solutions, exceptional professional support, world-class credentials and unmatched experience.
