Our Partnership with Mother Earth
OPERATIONS & PROCESSES
- Our powder coating system utilizes cyclone-based reclaim technology to collect overspray and reuse excess powder. Since 2004 we have eliminated more than 1,250,000 pounds of waste with this system.
- Recycling programs are in place for scrap steel, aluminum, wood and corrugated materials. In each of the last five years, we have recycled more than 4 million pounds of scrap from our manufacturing facilities. We have also established recycling programs for paper and beverage containers in our corporate offices.
- All of our manufacturing facilities and offices utilize energy- efficient T8 fluorescent lighting. Since 2006, our collective energy- conservation efforts have saved us approximately 2,507,500 kilowatt hours, the equivalent of almost 1,108 metric tons of carbon dioxide!
