This last pledge is perhaps the most important in Black’s environmental armoury and gives him the answer clients want to hear. Though headquartered in New Zealand, Autex Acoustics has satellite sites across the world, which enables manufacturing to happen close to points of use. In the UK, a plant in Huddersfield serves British and European clients, while local sales team are growing globally to limit the movement of people. Though its legacy was born on the other side of the world, the Autex Acoustics that Black leads proudly carries a Made in Britain stamp. If we are going to continue to build mega à la KGX1, while permanently nixing those emissions, perhaps we all need to think global and act local.
