Recycling We recycle most of our scrap and manufacturing by-products. Glass, cardboard, plastics, aluminum and more than 2,000 pounds of PVC are recycled in our facilities each day. In fact, using a state of the art process we're able to recover 100% of the PVC waste created during manufacturing, salvaging high quality, usable plastics that would otherwise be discarded. The recovered vinyl is reprocessed into a variety of consumer goods. Lean Manufacturing Our manufacturing plants use lean manufacturing processes to increase operational efficiency and reduce our overall energy consumption.
