Boston based Emerson Bearing is saving big bucks on packaging costs each month and they attribute it to their latest green initiative.
Emerson Bearing, which caters to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets throughout the U.S., decided to seek a more environmentally-friendly way to package each shipment of bearings and related products.
The company invested in a $1,300 machine that recycles cardboard boxes by shredding and converting them into packaging materials. Now, instead of expensive bubble wrap, Emerson Bearing packs most of their shipments in this environmentally friendly, biodegradable cardboard “fluff”. The bottom line? Not only is it better for the environment, but the company reduced their overall packaging costs by $500 to $1000 per month.
“We’ve obtained significant cost savings, upwards of $12,000 per year by simply seeking ‘greener’ alternatives. Had we been aware of this great technology, we would’ve incorporated it years ago,” noted Steve Katz, the company’s president.
Paper-Free Online Comprehensive Bearings Catalog
Emerson Bearing has also taken measures to reduce new paper consumption. They have recently launched a sophisticated new website that features an online catalog of more than 3 million bearings and related parts which can also be downloaded and saved to a PC/laptop and used as a reference guide. Spec sheets, conversion charts and more are available online at emersonbearing.com.
