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.
