Menasha Corporation Publishes Corporate Responsibility Report
August 10, 2015
Menasha Corporation announces it has published its fifth annual Corporate Social Responsibility Report. The report provides data and information on activities and progress related to the Corporation’s economic, environmental and social performance, including updates on GHG emissions, water use, waste, safety, certifications, and acquisition and expansion activities.
The 2014-2015 Corporate Social Responsibility Report is accessible at Menasha Corporation’s website at www.menashacorporation.com and is available in print by request.
The report highlights notable accomplishments from Menasha Corporation’s businesses Menasha Packaging and ORBIS Corporation, including:
- Menasha Packaging is meeting the growing needs of consumer products goods companies in North America with the acquisitions of Canada-based PearceWellwood Inc. of Brampton and Portable Packaging Systems of Mississauga in the first half of 2015.
- Menasha Packaging increased its output capabilities and improved press speeds at its promotional and print operations in Neenah, Wis. with added space for manufacturing, warehousing and logistics; and consolidated equipment and processes.
- Menasha Packaging achieved significant energy savings and cut chemical use by 70 percent after two business units teamed up to find a better way to source, purchase and process printing plates for the company’s display business.
- Menasha Packaging’s Environmental Management Systems—which is a part of the Wisconsin DNR Green Tier Program—documents environmental activities, and has led to increased employee knowledge of recycling and waste management processes and better understanding of the environmental impact of material used to produce Menasha products.
“It has been an exciting year filled with growth for Menasha Packaging as we’ve expanded our presence in North America with our acquired businesses in Canada and expanded multiple facilities,” said Mike Waite, president of Menasha Packaging Company. “With growth comes our continued commitment to be a socially responsible company. I am proud that our employees are continuously focused on improving our energy and waste-reduction activities, as highlighted in our latest responsibility report.”
Menasha Packaging is the nation’s largest independent, retail-focused corrugated packaging and merchandising provider.
