Waupaca Foundry Inc. achieves accredited Energy Management System Certification
Waupaca Foundry Inc., a Hitachi Metals Group company, announces its Waupaca-based gray iron foundry is the first United States metal caster to receive the accredited ISO 50001 Energy Management System certification.
The certification was a result of energy conservation initiatives at Waupaca Foundry’s plant, located at 406 N. Division St., Waupaca, one of three gray iron foundries the company operates in Waupaca. As a result of this and other energy conservation initiatives, the firm also received a $100,000 incentive from Wisconsin’s Focus on Energy program.
The accredited ISO 50001 Energy Management System certification is an international standard confirming the gray and ductile iron casting supplier has created a system of continual improvement in energy use, efficiency and consumption.
