“SGP is proud to have Syracuse Label & Surround Printing as a certified facility. The company is a strong leader in sustainable practices, from zero waste to landfill to lean manufacturing,” said Jonathan Graham, President of SGP. “The company is a model of how a manufacturing facility benefits its customers through sustainability built into every process and aspect of the business.

As part of its sustainability program, Syracuse Label & Surround Printing recycles all plate material, computer equipment, metal spare parts, UV and fluorescent lamps, wooden pallets and batteries. The remaining raw material, kitchen and office waste is used as solid fuel for alternative energy production. By using digital technologies, the company reduces the waste of all printing materials, including plates, substrate, inks and other printing supplies. The result of lean production includes less electricity and natural gas for heating, cooling and plant operation.
