Environmental concerns are a key issue of our time and Mott is committed to making a positive difference. Our approach is built upon a foundation of Practices, Production, and Products. We’re focusing on corporate environmental responsibility while enhancing product quality with modern efficient manufacturing.

Employee commitment sustains our environmental agenda. We aim to manufacture long-lasting laboratory furniture using steel with substantially high recycled steel content, wood from sustainable forests, and environmentally friendly coatings. We protect employees, neighbors, and customers by eliminating VOC’s and minimizing our impact on the waste stream. A few of our initiatives include:

  • Establishing and tracking environmental improvement goals
  • Minimizing waste sent to landfills
  • ISO Quality Management System assures the reliable, long life of your lab furniture and fume hoods
  • U.S. Green Building Council Member
  • LEED accredited professionals on staff
  • Rainforest Alliance certified to FSC Chain-of-Custody standards
  • AWI Quality Certification Program (QCP) Premium certified
  • Supporters of I2SL’s efforts to develop environmentally safe and sustainable labs

Always in pursuit of excellence we strive to produce high-quality products through sustainable processes and state-of-the-art low impact manufacturing. Our customers demand socially responsible manufacturing. We’re reducing emissions, waste, and raw material use. We’re setting goals, and measuring achievement. A few things we’re doing are:

  • Major investments in modern manufacturing to reduce material usage and waste creation
  • Powder coat paint reclamation for painted steel products
  • Products tested to SEFA performance standards

Our vision is to create sustainable products that will continuously adapt to changing needs. Our objective is to develop new products and systems designed to be reconfigured and relocated, offering flexibility to laboratories. Our products are durable and easy to maintain and we supply products compatible with those purchased years ago so furniture can maintain full functionality for an extended life cycle.
