Ship & Shore Environmental: How green are your fasteners?

“The train has left the station.”

Earth Day, plastic waste ‘islands’ floating in the ocean, carrier bag charges, the car emissions test scandal…high profile environmental stories now regularly make the headlines. With a few notable exceptions, governments, industry and individual consumers the world over have realised that changes must be made to protect the environment.

Fastener manufacturers – and distributors – have not been exempt. Laws designed to protect the environment have directly impacted on fastener production, not least in China, where industrial polluters now face an Environmental Protection Tax. While factories and supply chains adapt, the volume of fastener product making its way to the rest of the world has reduced, causing some short term pain for suppliers.

Tapping into this burgeoning ‘green’ trend is Ship & Shore Environmental. The US pollution abatement firm was founded in Long Beach, California, specialising in air pollution capture and control systems for industry. The diversifying business has now set its sights on fastener manufacturers, following a serendipitous rise in enquiries from fastener-related businesses, for which Ship & Shore has helped improve plant efficiency.

“We’ve recently been getting more requests from the fastener market,” Ship & Shore Environmental CEO Anoosheh Oskouian tells Torque Magazine. “We figured the expansion was interesting and we’ve been investing in new equipment so it made sense for us to hit the fastener world.”
