sustainability initiative

A look at our Current Factory Initiatives

What we’re doing

93% of our molding machines are electric, which are 70% more efficient than hydraulic.

Air compressors are controlled using variable speed drives (VSD’s), calculating required air without extra energy.

100% of rain water collected on our 52,000m2 is filtered & reused for cooling machines.

Shipping container volume is calculated & maximised. More items are shipped & our carbon footprint is reduced.

Products are managed by the dexion automated storage & retrieval system, reducing the need for forklifts.

Intelligent quality control ensures only the best products are made. Any rejected parts are re-ground & re-purposed.
