Giving Back to Our Communities
As a company, we continue to increase our involvement with local charities and boards. Swagelok provides support to organizations such as Harvest for Hunger, Susan G. Komen®, and Habitat for Humanity®. Our charitable foundations and trusts support local charities with $5 million in annual donations.
On an individual and group basis, our associates provide countless volunteer hours and other means of support to a wide variety of causes. Our sales and service centers have a strong community focus and are active in improving the regions in which they operate.
Reducing Energy Use and Waste
Although our manufacturing output has increased significantly since 2010, our level of energy use has remained virtually the same. Recent investments in our facilities have included new LED lighting, air compressors, boilers, chillers, and other more energy-efficient equipment.
We minimize our use of hazardous chemicals by seeking safer chemicals and other materials for our manufacturing processes and products. Each year at our facilities, we recycle more than 15-million lbs. of alloys, and we divert more than 50% of general waste from landfills.
Outside our facilities, we have planted gardens of wildflowers and native prairie grass to reduce fertilizer use and emissions from mowers.
A Vision for the Long Term
Since 1947, we have been a values-based company committed to doing the right thing in all cases.
Our values orientation plays out in everything from supply chain management to engineering, manufacturing, fulfillment, and sales and service.
As a privately held company, we are not under pressure for short-term financial results. In all areas of our business, we attempt to make decisions that are in the best long-term interests of our company, associates, sales and service centers, and our customers.
