FWE Celebrates Earth Day 2019

Earth. What more is there to say about it that hasn’t already been said? She has been the only home we have ever known, in the wide unknown of the universe. It is a single blue light in adrift in an endless sea of stars.

We are the caretakers of this world and its sustainability falls on each of us. Food Warming Equipment Company understands the challenges facing our home and takes part in several initiatives to do our part in protecting this planet.

VIRTUALIZATION OF THE DATA CENTER

One of the lesser known benefits is our reduction in IT Server space. We took several physical servers and consolidated them onto a Virtual Machine. This allowed us to reduce our server space by 3 times! Even better, our employees can access the server remotely by using a virtual desktop, reducing the amount of waste at the end of a piece of hardware’s life cycle.

PACKAGING

FWE uses recyclable corrugated board. We also work with Vendors to reduce the amount of packaging required to get products delivered safely. Over the years, FWE has experimented with the reduction of our packing materials to safeguard the environment while assuring product to market requirements. In addition to corrugated board, FWE cycles containers, boxes, paper goods, wood, shipping skids, and metal.

TREE PLANTING

    FWE has given or planted over 350 trees through its effort of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and has reduced the company’s overall impact on the environment through the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions outside the four walls of the factory.

REDUCE

As most manufacturing facilities know, paperwork is an essential requirement to keep production organized and timely. Leading edge factory techniques have given birth to an in-house hyper “E-manufacturing environment” at FWE we have reduced paperwork and drawings in the factory by 99%. While no organization is completely paperless, FWE has taken considerable effort in reducing its paper needs to only a fraction of what would have otherwise been used in a traditional manufacturing facility.
