Supply Chain and Distribution Networks
We choose to manufacture almost our entire product portfolio in the state of New Hampshire, USA. As a Just in Time manufacturer we have a closely located supply chain to our facilities, keeping the transportation of many of our materials and components to a minimum. However we sometimes require critical components and materials from locations far and wide. We are only beginning to understand the environmental implications of our supply chain and delivery decisions, and the implication of those suppliers' decisions. This Life Cycle Assessment is underway and will bring us clear opportunities for reduction and improvement of our environmental impacts.
We are fortunate to sell to a broad and loyal customer base around the globe. To meet customer demands, we ship products from our manufacturing facilities in New Hampshire to distribution points worldwide. This distribution network has an inevitable environmental impact and we are endeavoring to understand how we can simultaneously exceed the delivery requirements of our customers while making less impactful distribution network decisions.
