Responsible and Sustainable Manufacturing

The benefits of sustainable manufacturing will be appreciated by the generations to come.

We Believe In Sustainable Manufacturing

The Ajax sustainable manufacturing program is charged with reducing the environmental impact of our business activities. Ajax has an active green manufacturing program that recycles plastics, cardboard, paper, and aluminum beverage cans.  Our recycling list also includes used light bulbs, office paper, batteries, and used computers. All shop rags and leather gloves are washed and reused.

That’s just the beginning.  We also recycle tons of scrap metal each week, along with used oils and all leftover raw materials that result from our work for customers. Our plants feature state-of-the-art clean air systems that prevent toxic emissions from getting into the environment. We’ve lowered the company’s energy consumption by installing high-efficiency LED lighting, set-back thermostats, and motion sensor light switches.

We advocate for the environment through our sustainability initiatives, eco-friendly tool designs, and supply chain management. Ajax management understands that these stringent standards are needed to protect the health of our employees, and everyone in the communities in and around our plant locations, as well as the environment we all share.
