SUSTAINABILITY

Rooted in Innovation

As a company with tradition rooted in innovation, Tapecon has been actively involved in a number of sustainability initiatives. Continuous improvement has been one of Tapecon’s core values since the business was first started in 1919 and as a result, Tapecon has embraced a number of lean and sustainable practices in order to evolve.

We have concentrated on a select few key areas that will allow your projects to sustainably flourish with Tapecon:

  • Customer education
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Employee health, safety, and education
  • Lean thinking

Through lean thinking, we've been able to get rid of excess production waste and have been able to maximize our supply chain - all while manufacturing environmentally-friendly products.

 

Sustainability in Action

Tapecon is a founding member of WNY Sustainable Roundtable (WNY SBR). The WNY Sustainable Business Roundtable is a “business-driven” organization focused on creating an environmentally and economically resilient Buffalo-Niagara through business innovation, knowledge, and co-operation.

In April 2015, Tapecon submitted a Sustainability Plan to support WNY SBR during a forum called “A Sustainability Plan: Why have a Sustainability Plan. Our Sustainability Plan will be fine-tuned throughout the course of our company’s existence. 

As part of WNYSBR, Tapecon participates in their WNY Clean Production Leaders program, which is a smart chemical management program for local businesses leading the way to cleaner air and waterways.

Product Manager

Thank you and everyone at Tapecon for the hospitality and interest in working with us. We were both very impressed with the quality of work that is produced at Tapecon. One thing that I always look for when touring a plant is the level of engagement of the men and women on the floor with visitors. I noticed very clearly that there is ownership and pride among your team and I believe that success only comes when these elements exist coupled with enthusiasm and I was glad to see that yesterday.

President

I am very glad to have a vendor like your company. I received the automatic shipment notification for the 100 pieces. Once I saw the email, I immediately advised the people involved in order to import the part today. I am very glad to have a vendor like your company.
