Hypertherm, headquartered in Hanover, N.H., is a 100% Associate-owned, worldwide company. They provide cutting products and solutions with products sold in more than 60 countries.
One of the many corporate social responsibility goals Hypertherm has implemented is to reach 30% improvement in the energy efficiency of their global business operations.
So far, Hypertherm has saved $110,000 from new energy efficiency projects they started in 2015. They began their efficiency work by embedding their electricity usage and expenses into their operational management. Their commitment in New Hampshire was demonstrated by their achievement of LEED Gold in their mixed use building in Hanover, NH. When they reach their goal in 2020 they anticipate they will have saved more than $7 million in electricity costs (globally).
“Hypertherm is a lean manufacturer and ESOP. Our company is guided by a “triple bottom line” mission that entwines our Associates, communities, environment, and profits. Energy efficiency is a natural focus for us – we can reduce unnecessary energy usage, save millions of dollars, decrease our negative impacts on the environment, and continuously strive to be a positive example for our Associates, community, and industry.”
