Environmentally Responsible Manufacturing

Our Environmental Sustainability Policy

Brunk’s commitment to its environmental responsibility includes initiatives to reduce energy consumption, control the disposal of chemicals, compounds and solvents, minimize waste, and work to make our facilities more environmentally responsible. Brunk is a heavy manufacturer that requires significant energy resources to support our factory operations. We have a commitment to work with our energy partners to maximize our use of green energy, and conserve the use of purchased energy. Brunk’s efforts to support its Green Strategy include efforts to reduce operating costs, implement lean initiatives and add value to production processes. These efforts affect manufacturing processes, administrative processes and physical plant systems. In addition to minimizing its environmental footprint, Brunk also considers as part of its sustainability programs the requirements to provide a safe workplace for its employees, be good corporate citizens by engaging in ethical business practices, and through treating its employees with respect and dignity.

Manufacturing Processes

Brunk’s manufacturing processes are designed to foster sustainable production methods through initiatives including:

  • Material waste reduction
  • The use of process water regulators
  • State of the art multi-faceted advanced manufacturing processes
  • Machine time efficiency efforts including motor usage efficiency
  • Use of E-Based (paperless) shipping and documentation systems
  • The use of machines and equipment that consume fewer resources and produce more sustainable products

Administrative Processes
