At Laser Central we support the community through Manufacturing, and are committed to building strong relationships. We believe that this should be true not just for our customers, but also for the community at large. Through our values, we not only creatively deliver opportunities that empower the achievement of long-lasting success; we also have a priority towards contributing to the future wellbeing of society. With this in mind, we support a wide range of innovation and education projects.
Our CSR activities include:
Laser Central is continually looking at its carbon footprint. The Company acknowledges the fundamentals of laser cutting require high end usage of power. However, to mitigate its overall impact, the Company employs state of the art technology in its use of power factor correction and low energy LED lighting within the factory and offices, as well the introduction of energy efficient fiber laser facilities. On the road our company supplied vehicles are fuel efficient hybrid vehicles. We have rigid environmental recycling programs for our metal off-cuts and packaging materials.
Laser Central has strong focus both on identifying recyclable material in its waste as well as purchasing packaging product that in itself is recycled. Through continuous improvement programs we have reduced our paper consumption by 40%. The Company has planned sustainable growth with a defined investment strategy that will support the manufacturing community and its workforce into the future.
The Company respects the work/life balance of its employees. Safety of our employees is paramount and the family ownership promotes an inclusive culture within the workforce. Our employees are cross trained in first aid and CPR practices as well as fire hazard awareness and prevention. We have strongly supported residency opportunities for overseas skilled labour as well as having a culture of continuous improvement and training for all staff. The company guarantees alignment with employment standards through membership of employer associations.
