FSC Logo

Our Closure Division continues to look for alternative materials that will satisfy the environmental challenges we face today, while remaining cost competitive to the brand. We proudly announce that today our manufacturer for Diam corks meets the world's most stringent environmental, ethical, and economic sourcing standards with Forest Stewardship Council® Chain-of-Custody (FSC® CoC) certification. FSC® certified corks can be produced on request.

FSC® is an independent, non-governmental, not for profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests.

Products carrying the FSC® standard are independently certified to assure consumers that they come from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations.

Carbon Footprint Reduction

When shipping long distances, we utilize lightweight packaging and bulk shipping methods.

Waste Reduction

  • 80% of total waste is recycled in Modesto. We also partner with our customers to reuse most packaging materials such as fiber and pallets.
  • We utilize regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTOs) at our facilities in Modesto. These RTOs eliminate up to 98% of the VOCs from our screw cap printing, PVC capsule printing and assembly operations. We use in-line electrostatic precipitators (ESPs) and dust-collecting systems at our Closure Division to further control emissions.

Lean Operations

Our skilled process improvement representatives conduct Kaizen events on a regular basis at both G3 Closure and Label Divisions. The goal of these events is to reduce "muda," or wastes.
