Green Manufacturing

McLaughlin Body Company's efficient use of resources, recycling and emissions reduction contributes to environmental sustainability.

Aware of our footprint. With two manufacturing plants on America's largest river, McLaughlin Body Company is acutely conscious of potential impact on both the environment and a large population.

We've started with efficient use of our own resources - notably collecting, recycling and reusing the waste metal, chemicals and paint products from our processes - including overspray from powder coating. The move to powder coat from a wet coat spray significantly reduces emissions because no solvents are needed. Robotic welding capabilities allow us to use electricity off-peak.

We feel sustainability begins with awareness, making the right choices and continuous improvement.
