SUSTAINABILITY AS A DRIVER OF INNOVATION
Sustainability is the central theme of our time and the driver for innovation. Thinking and acting in an environmentally conscious and resource-conserving manner are of fundamental importance to us. For this reason, the topic of sustainability is also firmly integrated into our corporate mission statement. The three pillars that stand at the core of sustainability for us are – environment and resources, social responsibility and product responsibility.
- Solar energy
We have been producing our own electricity with a photovoltaic system for many years.
- Green electricity
Since we need more energy than we can produce ourselves, we rely on sustainable green electricity when purchasing.
Only vehicles with efficient drive technologies are used in our fleet.
We buy up to 100% recycled material and use this for new products in injection molding.
Unavoidable plastic waste is sorted by type and delivered to certified New-Life-Upcycling companies. This is where the waste finds a new way of life, e.g. for insulation boards in the railway sector or sports floors.
- Cold runner and hot runner
For elastomers we use cold runner systems wherever possible so that we can produce as waste-free as possible in production. When processing thermoplastics, it is hot runner systems that enable waste-free production.
- Closed-loop production
With this production variant, unavoidable waste and scrap parts are crushed in a mill directly in the production process and added back to the melt in the injection unit. Thus, a closed, waste-free process runs in series!
- Efficient machines
Highly efficient technology is used when investing in new systems.
- Waste separation
The separation of waste is regulated throughout the company.
In cooperation with our customers, we try to pave the way for sustainable manufacturing and product solutions as early as possible. In this way we help the environment and our customers to optimize the CO2 footprint.
