Protecting the environment is more than just a responsibility. It is a duty owed to future generations.
Every company operating today has an ethical and moral obligation to ensure its environmental impact is not only minimized, but that forward-thinking sustainable practices are incorporated on a perpetual basis. Whether it be sourcing manufactured products locally to minimize the carbon footprint of transportation, to operating in energy efficient facilities, to supporting vendors and component manufacturers with similar goals and policies. Every person and company has a duty to contribute to a better future for next generations.
One of the best ways for a company to reduce its carbon footprint is to source locally. Reducing transportation distance directly correlates to lowered Green House Gas emissions, which in some cases can be significant.
We are in the process of phasing out older automatic screw machines as well as belt-driven CNC's in favor of direct drive CNC's, greatly increasing energy efficiency as well as reducing total operating hours per job.
Recycling & Reclamation
From skids and paper products to cutting fluids and oils, Adaptall places a great deal of prioritization on recycling of all reusable materials. Even our paper shredding service was specifically chosen due to their sustainability polices.
All boxes used by Adaptall are standard size for our shelves, bins, inter-company transfers and shipments to customers. What this means is that every box we bring in with product, goes out with product. Nothing goes to waste.
Adaptall began implementing sustainable practices company-wide in 2015. This includes the transition to a mostly paperless environment, the incorporation of advanced centrifuges in our manufacturing facility to reclaim cutting oils, and a further committment to remove oil entirely in favor of water based cutting fluids by 2022.
We have also improved scrap recovery procedures to ensure the highest percentage of materials is returned to the supply chain. Scrap recovery is more environmentally friendly form of production vs. sourcing raw materials as the carbon footprint is greatly reduced.
