In addition to numerous facility enhancements, Gilchrist Metal Fabrication Company has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for powering the company’s facility with 100% renewable energy.
As company President, Jack Gilchrist, explains, “We have always been committed to making a positive impact in any way we can at GMF. When the opportunity arose to power our business with wind energy, it was a no brainer.”
Gilchrist explains that domestic wind energy production recently surpassed 50 gigawatts of power generation capacity, which roughly equals the power producing capacity of 11 nuclear plants. “As a metal fabrication company, it’s no secret that we use a lot of power. Fortunately, making the switch to wind energy allows us to contribute to green initiatives on a number of levels. Not only is it more sustainable for businesses and communities, but it also allows us to help contribute to green initiatives on both a local and national level.”
Gilchrist Metal Fabricating Company has provided businesses and municipalities across the country with metal fabrications of every variety. Past projects range from intricate architectural fabrications to steel reactor chambers. With this in mind, Gilchrist explains that the company’s ongoing commitment to green initiatives does far more than increase the GMFCO’s energy efficiency, but speaks to the company’s commitment to efficiency in general as well. “It definitely isn’t just so I can sleep well at night knowing I run a green company. Apart from simply doing our part for the environment, it helps support the green initiatives of our customers — which is important.”
With efficiency remaining a common theme, Gilchrist Metal Fabricating Company has also announced multiple equipment optimizations, including numerous upgrades to robotic welding equipment. Additions like advanced vision systems and adaptive holding tools have enabled the company to drastically increase efficiency and productivity for metal fabrication projects of all sizes.
“Across the country and around the world the focus is on efficiency, whether you’re talking about energy or fabricating costs. We sink or swim based on our ability to competitively deliver more, faster.”
Gilchrist Metal Fabricating Company was established in Hudson, New Hampshire in 1975. Since then, GMFCO has been focused on providing industry leading metal fabrications and welding services for customers across the country.
