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. (perhaps here insert the beaker image to the right of the text? If it works?? I would want it to be small)

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 9001-2015 assures adherence to processes that work for our customers
  • U.S. Green Building Council Membership
  • LEED accredited professionals on staff
  • Rainforest Alliance certified to FSC Chain-of-Custody standards
  • California Air Resources Board (CARB) compliant
  • Supporters of I2SL’s efforts to develop environmentally friendly laboratories

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
  • UV flat line finishing system with no VOC’s for wood products

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.


  • Powder coated steel consists of 85% or greater recycled content: 27% pre-consumer and 42% post-consumer recycled scrap.
  • Stainless steel is 100% recyclable and has a value even after a very long life. Stainless steel consists of approximately 75% - 85% recycled content.
  • Durable, high-quality surface protection with minimal waste and zero VOCs.
  • Offer various systems solutions that maximize mobility and adaptability creating a user friendly, long life cycle laboratory.
  • Energy efficient shelf task lighting available.
  • Durability that meets and exceeds SEFA 8 performance standards, to provide an even longer product life cycle.


  • Provide FSC certified wood that is supplied by responsibly managed forests.
  • Offer no added urea formaldehyde (NAUF) panel products and are California Air Resources Board (CARB) compliant.
  • Offer powder coated steel and stainless steel drawer bodies and shelves.
  • Our UV flat line finishing system meets SEFA 8 standards, emits zero (VOCs) using solvent-free UV coatings.


  • Design and engineer energy efficient, low volume fume hoods that result in considerable energy cost reduction and ensure operator safety.
  • Using steel with a minimum of 85% or greater recycled content with a VOC free powder coated finish.
  • Automatic Sash Operating System that lowers and/or rises automatically which can enhance safety and dramatically increase the efficiency of Variable Air Volume systems.
  • Energy efficient LED lighting available.
  • We ensure the safety of our hoods by designing them to meet UL 1805 standards.
