Champion Fiberglass® Receives New Crusher; Capital Investments Continue

Capital Investments Continue; Champion Fiberglass® Receives New Crusher

Champion Fiberglass’s strong commitment to environmental issues manifested with an ISO 14001 certification, and a continuing step in that direction is the installation of a new Crusher and Hammermill to grind down waste materials.

The New Crushers Role

Manufacturing conduit creates solid waste in the form of broken and unusable pieces of fiberglass. Along with the hammer mill machine, the crusher helps break down these pieces for a dramatic reduction in solid waste. Both machines will contribute to an 80-90% reduction in what currently goes to the landfill. Goran Haag, President and Founder of Champion Fiberglass, says, “Our next goal is to find a cement or concrete company that can take the waste and use it as filler and reinforcement in their products.”

Champion Fiberglass supports environmental protocols that allow for more responsible manufacturing. Plus, these investments directly impact products and customers. “Because we fabricate more efficiently, effectively and in an environmentally sound way, we’re able to pass along benefits and savings to customers,” explains Haag.
