BARABOO, WIS. — Flambeau Inc., an injection molder and blow molder based in Baraboo, will participate in Wisconsin’s Profitable Sustainability Initiative Program, sponsored by the Wisconsin Manufacturing Extension Partnership.
Flambeau will work with experts to identify and implement high-payback projects targeting energy, logistics, product and process innovation and environmental improvements.
The company will buy a new variable speed air compressor and a corrugate compactor for its blow molding facility. Flambeau also added a new water chiller for its injection molding facility, which the company expects to save almost $70,000 annually.
The company also plans to introduce a continuous improvement program, providing employees with a simple way to share improvement ideas.
