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

Green Manufacturing

Aware of our footprint. With a manufacturing plant on America’s largest river, McLaughlin Body Company is acutely conscious of the 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 top 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.
