In 2016 Qualtek Manufacturing is committed to achieving these environmental goals:
To support achieving our environmental goals, we established the Qualtek Manufacturing Environmental Policy.
Our Environmental Results
Reduced Carbon Footprint
New Efficient Equipment
Use 45% Less Energy
By upgrading our Vacuum furnace, Qualtek now uses 45% less energy to ramp and cycle a load than was consumed by the furnace it replaced. The energy savings helps reduce our entire company’s peak demand as well, which affects processes unrelated to Heat Treat.
35,000 Gallons Reused Yearly
Water captured from the Heat Treat department is diverted every day to our Finishing Department resulting in recycling and reusing over 35,000 gallons of water per year.
144mWh of Electricity
A 26KW Solar panel array produces 90% of the electricity needed to power offices and material warehousing at our neighboring 4218 N. Nevada building. Since installation the array has produced 144mWh of 0 emission electricity.
