Our Environmental Commitment
REDUCING LIGHTING ELECTRICAL CONSUMPTION
MARFAB has shown a marked interest in developing and selecting products that have less adverse effects on the environment. The company recently undertook lighting retrofits in order to use more efficient lighting technology in its facilities. As a result, MARFAB has reduced its carbon footprint and significantly decreased its lighting electrical consumption. All the old lamps, light fixtures and ballasts were recycled in accordance with the environmental laws. The new light fixtures have an extended life expectancy that reduces the environmental impact by having to replace the lamps less often.
LOW VOC FINISHES
MARFAB finished products are powder coated. Electrostatic powder coating is a clean process that is HAPs (hazardous air pollutants) Free. Powder coatings contain no solvents and therefore emit negligible, if any, polluting VOCs into the surrounding air.
MANUFACTURING EFFICIENCY and PRODUCT INNOVATION
Equipped with the most advanced manufacturing technology, MARFAB produces maximum product yields with less energy use and material waste. Some products are processed overnight, by fully automated, CNC machinery. These “Lights Out” operations eliminate the need for lighting and facility climate control, while drawing electricity during “off peak” hours . MARFAB couples technology with fabrication ingenuity and innovative design changes that streamline the operations and sequences required to make their parts. The result is superior products made in the most efficient way possible.
REUSE and RECYCLE
MARFAB utilizes recycled metal and recycles any waste material generated by fabrication of products. All corrugated packaging is made of recycled material and any packaging from incoming supplies is reused. MARFAB has also implemented a facility wide recycling program for paper as well as plastic and glass bottles.
