Our Commitment to the Environment

Our products are made from recycled materials. In fact, we have converted thousands of tons of scrap steel into lightweight products that decrease heavy haul energy consumption.

Recycling and Landfill Diversion

Over 3,000,000 cars - that is how many cars we have kept out of landfills.

We accomplished this with comprehensive recycling programs that include finding alternative uses for our manufacturing by-products.

Energy Efficiency

8000000 kWh
of electricity conserved

How do we do it? Reducing the use of compressors, utilizing variable speed motors and energy-efficient lighting upgrades for starters.

Water Use Reduction

Through optimization of processes in our wheel manufacturing facilities, we have been able to reduce our daily water usage.

9% per day
reduced water consumption

Raw Material Reduction

For all the tons of steel we recycle...

...we have helped to conserve

close to 1000000 tons of iron ore
