At Quaker, the Green Movement is nothing new to us. We’re very proud to say that we’ve been offering positive, environmental products for many years. Quaker Window Product’s green participation and activities continue to grow. For example:
- • Our aluminum and glass scrap is regularly sold to recycling for re-use.
- • At Quaker, we’re continually implementing and installing machinery in our manufacturing plants that lessen our waste of raw materials, such as glass, aluminum, vinyl, wood and paint.
- • Quaker’s in-house powder-coat paint facilities implement several “green” advantages over conventional liquid coatings: Powder coatings emit zero or near zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Production lines produce less hazardous waste than conventional liquid coatings. Also overspray from powder coating can be recycled and re-used, thus it is possible to achieve nearly 100% use of coating.
- • Quaker has been an Energy Star™ partner for more than a decade.
