Our customers work hard to make their bit of the planet more beautiful and functional, and AMES® is committed to doing the same. At AMES, we believe that’s not just good for the planet—it’s good business.
AMES uses only sustainable hardwood in our products. For every tree harvested for an AMES tool, at least two more are planted. In addition, we use or sell every part of each tree that we buy, including the bark, scrap and sawdust.
We use recycled materials in packaging and in our products
wherever we can do so without sacrificing utility or quality.
We also recycle cardboard and other materials used in our
facilities and in our packaging.
To conserve precious energy, we use right-sized and automated lighting; participate in conservation programs with electricity providers, use energy conserving components on equipment, and employ optimized shipping and assembly practices.
We take measures to conserve the water we use to cool equipment and products in our manufacturing processes.
We use low-emission and zero-emission paint and coating
processes that provide superior performance and are healthier for people and the environment.
We work hard to make sure everything we do is positive, not just
for customers, but from a cost and compliance standpoint as well.
