We are consistently seeking methods to optimize our operations and processes to be more sustainable and environmentally friendly.

The inherent nature of our work at Quickgrind involves designing, producing and remanufacturing cutting tools, necessitating that we depend heavily on precious resources, such as energy and raw materials.

 

We embrace new energy practices to assist in generating a low-carbon economy. Knowing how we use energy helps us identify opportunities to grow productivity or introduce renewable energy solutions across our business.

Here are just some examples of how we have accomplished this.

 

  • QuickEdge, our remanufacturing to an as-new state solution, is paramount to this circular economy.
  • More than 450 photovoltaic panels reducing carbon emissions by more than 17 tonnes per year.
  • LED lighting across our entire manufacturing plant and offices.
  • Other initiatives such as recycled packaging, paper packing to eliminate the use of plastic ‘bubble wrap’, eliminating one-use plastic cups, cycle-to-work schemes, and recycling carbide programs.
