Hoffman Estates, IL – As part of an ongoing effort to make processes and products more environmentally friendly, BIG Kaiser Precision Tooling Inc. is making modifications to its production materials and packaging. Specifically, the company has switched to unleaded steel and recyclable packaging. The new steel uses a Bismuth composite instead of lead. Additionally, new boring head packaging will use cardboard or recyclable PET instead of current Quadro packs with polypropylene.
“These adjustments to our materials and packaging will go a long way toward reducing the environmental footprint of our business and, more importantly, our customers,” said Jack Burley, vice president of sales and engineering. “It’s part of company-wide commitment to care for our customers without sacrificing quality or performance.”
BIG Kaiser was recently recognized by the Village of Hoffman Estates for the green efforts at its U.S. headquarters, including recycling, reducing paper usage, energy and water efficiency, and HVAC monitoring.
