Buying a washing machine that has been made in low-cost economies like China, Turkey and Eastern Europe is fraught with ethical challenges. These countries do not have the same working and pay standards as we have in the UK. Working environments and health and safety rules are also vastly different. Ebac is an employee-owned foundation. Putting the needs of our customers and employees before profit.
In the UK we abide by very stringent pollution and contamination controls. All by-products from manufacturing a washing machine are rigorously controlled. From the plastic moulding to the sheet metal work. The same standards are not implemented in China, Turkey or Eastern Europe. Pollution from the manufacturing process is often disposed of in rivers and not responsibly controlled. China creates more carbon emissions than all other developed nations combined. By buying an Ebac washing machine that's manufactured in the UK, you will have the smallest environmental impact of any brand you can buy.
Every time we purchase a washing machine that has been made in another country, the revenue and profit for that purchase leave the UK. It goes to China, Turkey and Eastern Europe and that strengthens those countries' economies. It creates jobs for workers in those counties. By purchasing an Ebac washing machine that has been made in the UK, the revenue and profits remain in the UK. They are reinvested and create jobs. Taxes are paid to the UK treasury to support hospitals, the NHS, roads and all public services.
Over 2 million washing machines are imported into the UK every year. Shipping a washing machine from China creates 48kg of carbon, from Turkey it creates 81kg of carbon. By manufacturing in the UK and shipping to the UK we create less than 8kg of carbon. Almost 10 times less.
Ebac washing machines are comparable to the very best machines anywhere in the world. Words are cheap and marketing claims are easy to deploy – that’s why Ebac provides every one of our washing machines with a full parts and labour 7-year warranty. British manufacturing is backed by a British warranty.
Buying British manufactured products is better for the economy, better for employment and better for the environment. An Ebac washing machine outperforms many well know brands that are made in China, Turkey and Eastern Europe.
"Works really well, almost silent. Great build quality and British Made. A great long warranty on the product as well. It's top end on price but that is what you get when you pay fair wages and produce a robust product. I'm sure I could have bought one much cheaper made in a foreign sweatshop!”
"I recently purchased a British Ebac washing machine and it's been one of the best decisions I've ever made. It's beautifully designed and quiet and comes with a free 7 years parts & labour warranty from Ebac. I can only speak from my experience with Ebac. So far, it's 10 stars. I now intend to buy my daughter an Ebac washing machine."
"Well what a machine, had a Bosch which cost a lot of money. But what most white goods makers don’t tell you is that they have sealed drums. So when the bearings fail you can’t get to them to replace. Research Ebac and was sold on the two-part drum system so you can replace a bearing. But you get a 7-year parts and labour, which you just don’t get anywhere else. At last, a machine that is as quiet as a mouse and the wash cycle is fantastic too."
"We purchased an Ebac washing machine after my wife found that the Bosch washing machine never managed to rinse and spin effectively. Well, the EBAC is superb, it does those effectively and quietly! I am so pleased with it as I now get no complaints about the machine. I recommend it, and I don t know and cannot understand why it's not a Which best buy, and it's British made."
"Been using the machine now for a couple of months & we are very pleased. It's quiet, efficient & well built with a large access door & all the washing features one might need. I find a lot of today's products can be shoddy with built-in obsolescence, which is bad for everyone thankfully that's NOT the case with Ebac."
"Very happy so far with our Ebac AWM74D2HWH 1400 RPM washing machine. Quiet wash cycles and the run-down timer indication gives a clear indication of how much time is left before the wash cycle is completed. Love the large door and selectable spin speeds from 600 1400 rpm, also wash temperature from 20c 90c even has a drum cleaning cycle if needed after extended use to clean and sanitise internally."
If you are not completely happy with your Ebac washing machines in the first 60 days, we will give you 100% of your money back no questions asked. We will even cover the shipping fees. Even if you just change your mind - we've got you covered.
