Waupaca Foundry is one of the most renowned names in the market of quality casting. We are also promoting a waste reduction project to reduce waste volume. Waste generated or when processed by us is reused or recycled as much as possible, to bring our final disposal amount as near to zero as possible. Waste reduction makes good management sense. Where there is waste, there is inefficiency, and where there is inefficiency, there is an opportunity to reduce costs. Reducing waste increases productivity, safeguards the environment and strengthens the firm's economic base. Waste reduction is a demonstration of the firm's commitment to environmental protection.
