SA Baxter: Green Approved

[tweetmeme source=”@SABaxterLL” only_single=false In an industry known for noxious waste, grit and grime, SA Baxter’s foundry and atelier, based in the New York Hudson Valley, proves that given a bit of green thinking and innovation, even the most offensive industries can clean up their act. In fact, our foundry and atelier emits less carbon over an entire year than half of what the average small car releases. In addition, our atelier produces no wastewater, and almost no emissions are released into the atmosphere.

While we have completed projects in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, with the exception of some component parts, we still create all of our decorative architectural hardware in-house, end-to-end.

We understand that a lot of companies claim to be green, but the term “green” has become so loosely used that it is increasingly difficult for people to determine what makes a product or manufacturing process green. To help you better understand our green manufacturing process, we have put together a list of answers to the most common questions we have been asked for your review.

What efforts have we made to make our manufacturing process green?

The first step for us was to examine the sort of metals that we use in our foundry. To make our products, we use bronze and Eco-Brass, a higher quality brass that is lead-free. The significance of using Eco-brass and bronze is that we do not emit any leaded smoke or toxic fumes into the atmosphere.
