M2 MDS have been providing print and design support to United Utilities, a leading North West based utilities company, since 2010. United Utilities are a company committed to being a fair and inclusive employer. They have long valued the importance of creating a supportive environment for their employees and have an established an LGBT+ Network of over 350 members, called Identity. Identity was formed to support LGBT+ employees and create a safe, inclusive and diverse working environment.
As part of our ongoing support to the LGBT+ network at United Utilities, M2 MDS have designed, produced and fitted an outdoor bench for the Identity / LGBT+ brand. The bench consists of outdoor high tack vinyl panels printed in the pride colours and gloss laminated for added protection against the elements. M2 MDS donated all of the costs for design and production as a good will gesture and to show our support.
This bench is located outside one of the main buildings on site at Lingley Mere and the feedback we have had is fantastic, with lots of comments and other sites wanting their very own pride bench including other water companies!
