Global industry leader, Master Fluid Solutions, recognizes its responsibility to promote conservation while increasing productivity and cutting cost. As a world leader in the scientific research, development and manufacturing of cutting, grinding, and cleaning fluids, environmental considerations are an integral part of Master Fluid Solutions's business practices and can be traced back more than half a century.
From the beginning we have been committed to the safety of the people who use our products, the protection of our planet and the environment we live in, and the overall impact on our customers' profitability. All of our products and services incorporate these three fundamental philosophies.
Master Fluid Solutions was one of the first companies in the world to voluntarily and rigorously test its products for safety—a practice that continues to this day. Our formulations are made exclusively with high-purity raw materials and final formulations are put through intensive independent testing to ensure safer work environment. We provide extensive education and training about the appropriate usage of all Master Fluid Solutions products and workplace safety overall.
Our early recycling efforts can be traced back to the late 1960's. Today our concern for the planet is expressed in a wide range of initiatives. Master Fluid Solutions has implemented global energy reduction and recycling initiatives as well as utilizing recycled products our offices and manufacturing facilities. Our coolant management programs and recycling systems continue to minimize usage and reduce industrial waste. This waste reduction has lessened the impact on our environment. Master Fluid Solutions's freight consolidation practices cause lower emissions. We will continue to improve the methods we use to lower environmental impact and ensure the safety of our products and manufacturing plants.
Master Fluid Solutions has always understood that profitability means more than just reducing expense. We work closely with our customers and distributors to identify and solve any issues. Our distributors undergo years of training; examining not only cutting, grinding, and cleaning issues, coolant management and recycling, but also coolant-related function and machinery problems. Master Fluid Solutions distributors are trained to provide multiple solutions including process improvements designed to increase throughput and reduce product usage.
We impact our customers' profitability in many ways, including reduced operating expenses through the proper selection and application of our fluids and fluid management equipment. Additionally, we place emphasis on process improvements to lower wasterelated expenditures, reduce hauling and shipping charges and lessen industrial energy usage.
Our current environmental policies and practices serve to protect our world—today and for future generations. We will actively maintain our partnerships with like-minded global organizations to develop even more efficient systems and formulations. Master Fluid Solutions will continue to factor safety, conservation and cost reduction in meeting the stringent needs and standards of the future.
