TEQ Thermoform Engineered Quality is proud to announce its recent participation in 3M's Sustainable Supplier Expo held on November 14, 2013 in St. Paul Minnesota.
This exclusive event brought together suppliers with unique sustainability solutions and various 3M businesses to explore cutting-edge solutions and packaging ideas that could be incorporated throughout 3M's value chain.
“As one of only two thermoformers and 29 suppliers invited to participate, we were honored to be part of such a world-renowned company’s effort to take serious steps towards sustainability,” said Randy Loga, President of TEQ. “3M’s dedication to this process was evident throughout the event, with a clear message prevailing -‘If you are not thinking about sustainability now, you are risking not being here ten years from now’,” Loga added.
TEQ’s focus during the Expo was on sustainability solutions centered around four core approaches:
•Material recommendations to help companies successfully replace current packaging materials with renewable, sustainable, biodegradable and recycled/ post-consumer plastics
•Proprietary material development to help companies achieve specific sustainability goals
•Building and management of on-site clean rooms to help companies reduce their carbon footprint
•Supply chain network solutions and management to help companies increase transportation efficiencies and reduce waste
"We were thrilled to have had the opportunity to take part in this event and offer innovative solutions to help guide the future vision of 3M's environmental stewardship strategies," said Loga. “TEQ offers a wide range of solutions to help both medical device and consumer packaged good customers achieve their lean manufacturing and sustainability goals, and we enjoyed sharing our approach with such a select audience.”
