Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
Eldon James Corporation – a leading U.S. based manufacturer of plastic tubing and fittings – has launched their green initiatives as a green manufacturer (http://www.eldonjames.com/green). Through a major effort in recycling manufactured materials, environmentally safe plastics and new energy efficiencies at their new 75,000 square foot facility in Denver, Eldon James looks to take the lead as a green company.
While Eldon James purchases thousands of pounds of raw material each year, they have intentionally built markets that can be supplied with internally recycled materials. "125,000 pounds of material is re-manufactured within our own facility every year," Exclaimed Marcia Coulson, President of Eldon James. "This material is ground and reprocessed into industrial and automotive parts that do not require first run material. It has been a very effective and efficient process that we are continually improving."
Environmentally safe plastics have continued to be a driving force for new innovation for the tubing extrusion and injection molded fittings. With several industries demanding alternatives as PVC Free tubing, Eldon James is leading the way with safe and effective alternatives like TPE tubing (thermoplastic elastomer). Specifically, the medical equipment industry and the beverage equipment industry have both recognized a need for tubing and fittings that to not have the harmful environmental and health effects that PVC does.
With these two major areas already in place for green manufacturing, the third area of their green initiative includes the energy efficiencies that are being built into their new headquarters and manufacturing facility in Denver, CO. Occupancy sensor controls for T5HO lighting in their warehouse and manufacturing, dc fan powered HEPA filters, all-electric servo controller molding machines and frequency drives on chiller loop and compressors will be all part of the new facility in 2013.
Eldon James is a woman owned, Colorado based manufacturer with international reach that has continued to see growth through difficult economies. Quality and corporate responsibility have always been a priority for the 25 year old company.
