There are a number of sustainability initiatives underway at Midmark. With facilities both domestically and internationally, we strive to meet or exceed environmental requirements in both the development of new products and services, as well as our manufacturing operations.
Because we can help our customers make a difference.
With each new generation of Midmark products, we continue to improve their environmental footprint. Reducing the use of toxic materials, increasing energy efficiency, maximizing the lifespan of our products, and promoting safer and healthier healthcare facilities are ways that Midmark can make a difference.
Because we desire conservation of resources and a sustainable environment.
As a global provider of healthcare products & services, Midmark has a responsibility to wisely manage the resources used in our facilities. Our lean manufacturing practices improve efficiency and reduce waste throughout the manufacturing process. From switching to energy efficiency lighting in plants, to recycling scrap metals, to improving efficiency of our finishing and powder coating systems, we are committed to continuous improvement.
For example, we recently reduced the disposable packaging on our 270 series stool products. As a result of this effort, we annually eliminated 19 tons of waste that would have gone to landfills, a reduction of 84% in landfill space. Over 98% of 270 stool packaging is now recyclable. And, we more than doubled the quantity of stools that can be loaded on a truck for delivery; fewer trucks helps us reduce our carbon footprint. Through projects like this, Midmark can make progress toward lowering our impact on the environment, and being wise stewards of our planet’s resources.
