Mercury sets a stellar example for an environmentally responsible firm by operating an ecologically sound production and warehousing facility. We employ a ‘5S’ lean manufacturing program, ascribe to countless significant energy saving features on our equipment, have controls and monitors on all our utilities (including air & water), and utilize MX4 software to trigger consistent and thorough maintenance on all the equipment throughout the Mercury plant. Moreover, we are diligent about sorting and recycling all scrap plastic, metal and corrugated materials. Mercury clearly walks the talk!
