We are looking to enhance our overall equipment effectiveness – or OEE – to ensure we get the most productivity out of every utility hour, while continually delivering the quality product demanded in the market.
Material waste is a common problem in manufacturing lines, with tape being a main contributor.
The use of solvents in adhesives is an industry standard and practice. However, this process can result in greenhouse gases (GHGs).
Since most of our products are wrapped in some type of packaging for protection, we wanted to help our customers better understand how to properly recycle and dispose of our product packaging.
Implementing this strategic two-fold approach has allowed us to find a solution to ship air efficiently while also allowing us to use less plastic material in Duck® brand Bubble Wrap® brand cushioning.
At Shurtape, we want to help our employees turn their educational dreams into realities.
At Shurtape, ethical business practices have always been of utmost importance.
At Shurtape, we strive to improve the lives of others through educational opportunities, community outreach, charitable donations and volunteer programs.
From manufacturing to distribution, the process of creating a product from a raw material to a recognizable item in the hands of a consumer is a lengthy process.
As consumers and pros look for more sustainable solutions to support their everyday tasks, we have a responsibility to do the same for our products. That’s why we’re taking steps to move our FrogTape® premium painter’s tapes to more sustainable paper and adhesive solutions.
At Shurtape, we believe our people make the difference. So, we work diligently to provide a safe and comfortable working environment in which we prioritize our employees’ health, safety and well-being above all else.
Those who are the most hands-on are often best to see potential challenges or areas for improvement. By implementing an Employee-Driven Safety approach, we keep employees directly involved in driving safety throughout our facilities, making them a proactive part of the solution. Through committees and ideas submissions, we’ve increased collaboration across teams and maintained a healthy track record of safety, keeping our focus on employees and our commitment to their health and well-being.
Some consumers want to go green – and we want to ensure they have the right solutions to rely upon. To support this need, we made the leap to add Flourish™ – a new line of curbside recyclable mailing and shipping supplies made with recycled content and pulp materials that are responsibly harvested. Flourish allows our consumers to live easily and more responsibly, each day. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg….
Because many of our products rely on paper raw materials, we must be cognizant of how these are sourced. Safe forestry practices allow us to be part of the solution for forest management and preservation, but also to protect wildlife, habitats and waterways and ensure the continued respect of the rights and well-being of workers and indigenous people. We have further solidified this commitment by certifying our products through industry-respected forestry programs including Forest Stewardship Certification, Programme for Endorsement of Forests and Sustainable Forestry Initiative.
Shurtape has a long history of supporting the communities in which we operate, and never has there been a time of greater need than in response to the ever-changing COVID-19 pandemic. That’s why we joined our communities in the fight against this health crisis through donations of both critical PPE and tape products, as well as financial contributions.
