Energized for Sustainability, Thanks to Our Partners

sustainability3PMT is honored to have received the Sustainability Leadership Award at the recent Manufacturing Leadership Summit presented by Frost & Sullivan. So it’s important to acknowledge the contributions that others have made to our sustainability initiative.

With the help of El Paso Electric Company, we conducted a rigorous audit that revealed numerous opportunities for energy efficiency. We took advantage of those opportunities and also made capital investments in energy-saving improvements, including:

  • New all-electric presses, saving approximately 398,000 kWh a year
  • Energy-efficient T5/T8 lighting, saving over 96,000 kWh annually
  • A variable-speed air compressor, reducing compressed air discharge by 20 psi and saving 185,167 kWh a year

Our sustainability initiative has resulted in a savings of 1.8 million kWh of energy per year — and we’re continuing to look for ways to improve.

E3: Economy-Energy-Environment

Because of our commitment to lean manufacturing, we chose to be the first business in the Paso del Norte region to participate in E3: Economy-Energy-Environment—Supporting Manufacturing Leadership Through Sustainability, a program developed by the EPA’s El Paso Border Office, Texas Manufacturing Assistance Centers (TMAC), New Mexico State University, and the New Mexico Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP).

Lean & Green, the E3 onsite training program, identifies and eliminates waste through continuous improvement. By participating in E3, we lessened our environmental footprint by reducing energy usage, solid waste, CO2 and water consumption.
