The Will-Burt Company Goes Green!

The Will-Burt Company’s manufacturing facilities located in Orrville, Ohio now operate an Environmental Management System which complies with the requirements of ISO 14001:2004.  These manufacturing sites are primarily engaged in the grinding, welding, cutting, machining and painting of metal and composite materials and all have been inspected and certified by third-party auditor BSI to meet the requirements for decreasing environmental impact and risks.

James Keplar, Will-Burt’s Environmental Management Representative said, “The process of preparing our manufacturing procedures and facilities to become certified has enabled us to instill a culture of environmental responsibility.  This has led to a reduced impact of our operations on the environment.”

“We are dedicated to producing quality products in a manner that is compliant with all environmental and legal requirements,” said Jeff Evans, Will-Burt's President, CEO and Chairman.  “Our modern manufacturing facilities and processes along with superb employee engagement have enabled us to receive ISO 14001:2004 certification which I consider to be an important factor in maintaining our status as a good corporate citizen within our community.”

The ISO14001:2004 standard is aimed at identifying and controlling an organization’s environmental impact and improving environmental performance.  The standard defines environmental management certification criteria, and provides a framework and tools for achieving the standard’s objectives. Organizations certified to the standard affirm to their customers, employees, and stakeholders that their environmental impact is continuously being measured and improved.
