The City of Milwaukee recognized Starline, a foundry of Chicago Faucet, for its commitment to environmental performance and implementation efforts toward conservation regulations.
The city regularly checks regional companies to see if they are adhering to ecological wastewater guidelines as part of their responsibility to water quality on Lake Michigan. To ensure no chemicals enter the wastewater, Starline stores all dangerous substances in double-walled containers.
“Our team is constantly implementing new measures to ensure that we produce in a more environmentally friendly way,” stated Hector Hernandez, environmental manager at the Milwaukee foundry.
Starline produces yellow brass castings with both gravity and low-pressure molding machines. According to the company, integrating engineering with casting, machining and polishing capabilities results in innovative, cost effective solutions to meet product requirements.
