CARE FOR ENVIRONMENT
Recycling over 1.5 MILLION POUNDS of Plastic per Year
Our motto at AMA is that sustainability means stability. That’s exactly why we forged key partnerships with recyclers to ensure 100% of our plastic scrap is recycled across several industries including agriculture, packing, and construction. It’s also why we installed a state-of-the-art, 1.2 megawatt rooftop solar array in 2015 that reduces our carbon footprint by over 3 million pounds per year.
We’re committed to the most efficient use of plastic scrap to ELIMINATE the creation of waste.
REGRIND WHERE PERMISSIBLE
We take special care to ensure all corrugate paper products, bottles and cans are collected and kept out of landfill. LED LIGHTING is implemented in our hallways, production rooms, offices, conference centers and other key areas onsite to reduce wasted heat and create a safer work environment. ENERGY EFFICIENT power strips can also be found in all office and conference room areas. Any florescent bulbs or batteries found at various points throughout our factory are immediately recycled.
Sustainability is not just part of our business plan; it’s part of AMA’s organizational DNA.

Rather than landfill scrap parts, runners, and sprues from those parts, AMA recycled more than 1 million lb of material in 2014, running zero waste by reusing as much material as it could internally.Plastics Technology
