For well over 50 years, Bingaman owners and employees have worked tirelessly to promote healthy, prolific forests in Pennsylvania and throughout the country. We believe that a vibrant, healthy environment is the basis for stable, secure society and a flourishing economy, so from our foresting and logging operations to the high-quality lumber products we produce, every aspect of our business is governed by a deep dedication to preserving the environment.
In 2014, our Kreamer facility expanded the use of sustainable energy by investing in a 187.88 kWp solar array. Laid out on the south-facing roof area of Sheds 4 and 5, the array came online in January 2015. Today, solar energy contributes about 25% of the electricity needed to manufacture our Strips and Dimensions, as well as operate our Planer.
How did we "expand" our use of sustainable energy? For decades here in Kreamer, our kilns and our buildings have been heated by clean-burning sawdust, collected from our various manufacturing activities.
Our recovery system is state-of-the-art. Nothing is wasted.
Electric hand dryers? Plastic shopping bags? What impact do your choices make? Bingaman owners and employees choose true sustainability, from resources that dawn every day, and that grow back. Bring on sunnier days!
