The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA) recently recognized the environmental stewardship efforts of Enginetics Corp., a Huber Heights-based company that produces aircraft engine components.
The company earned a gold-level award within the Ohio EPA’s Encouraging Environmental Excellence (E3) program.
In its manufacturing, the company reviews all chemicals it will use before purchase, determining any potential environmental impacts. Enginetics is also working to replace all of its aerosols with liquids, and is reviewing a program that would recycle the aerosol products it cannot replace.
“Ohio’s people and businesses have long been leaders in the aerospace industry and Enginetics continues that tradition,” Ohio EPA Director Craig W. Butler said. “However, they also are leaders in manufacturing with an eye on efficiency and environmental protection, particularly in the use of industrial chemicals. We are proud to present Enginetics our highest recognition for environmental stewardship.”
Butler recently went on a facility tour with Enginetics staff, who showed him the company’s stewardship efforts in person. Enginetics has a long history of working to limit its environmental impact, having adopted the Lean manufacturing program in 2005, initiated a recycling program in 2011, achieved International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001 environmental management systems standards certification in 2012 and adopted the Theory of Constraint (TOC) program in 2012.
