Commitment To Green

Commitment To Green

A commitment to environmental sustainability is becoming more essential to today’s world. Pipp is doing its part as a responsible manufacturer by having processes in place to minimize the impact on the environment.

Recycled Content

The primary materials used in our manufacturing are steel and aluminum. Whenever possible we use materials with a high percentage of recycle content.

  • In general aluminum is 60% recycled and steel is 72%.
  • Aluminum is all pre-consumer recycled.
  • Steel is approximately 14% pre-consumer and 58% post-consumer recycled.
  • Pipp can provide project specific information for the recycled content of the aluminum and steel used.

 

Recycling

Our manufacturing process is designed to minimize waste materials by ensuring maximized use out of the aluminum and steel we use. All waste that is generated during production is recycled. Packaging materials are also recycled where applicable. Our offices also participate in paper and toner cartridge recycling programs.

Lean Manufacturing

All of Pipp’s products are designed with a minimal amount of parts and are easy to assemble. Much of the assembly is completed at our plant to save time and resources for the end user. Our manufacturing facility is set up to minimize time, energy and resources. This is a continually improved process.

Vendor Partnerships

We align ourselves with vendors who share our same commitment to the environment and practice responsible manufacturing.

High-density mobile shelving can play a pivotal role in your building project and obtaining LEED certification. Mobile shelving is “green” by design. The utilization of mobile shelving allows more storage in less space. This can be beneficial in allowing the use of an existing building that may have been out grown or by freeing up critical space for other uses. Mobile shelving can also be beneficial in reducing the overall size of the building, thus
cutting down on construction materials and reducing energy consumption and costs.

Pipp Mobile has three types of movable systems to meet various storage needs. The three systems are manual, mechanical and electrical. The manual system is used in a lighter storage application and is moved by pushing or pulling the shelving. The mechanical system is used for heavier applications and uses a handle to move the shelving. The handle turns a shaft that runs the length of the mobile base, allowing for even movement from one end to the other. The electrical system operates automatically at the push of a button and can
handle loads up to 45,000 pounds.

To learn more about our wide variety of storage products and applications please review our web site. With further questions please feel free to contact our certified LEED professional, Greg Wesorick, at 616-988-4087.
