    Texas manufacturer goes green, challenges others to do the same ...

    (Lancaster, TEXAS) — A small family business is hoping to set the industry
    standard for environmental responsibility with a series of projects its leaders
    believe will revamp the way nameplates are manufactured.

    Texas Nameplate Co. is dramatically cutting chemical and water consumption
    through innovative building design and cutting-edge technology. In the past year,
    Texas Nameplate has implemented several environmentally conscious initiatives:

    Building green facilities designed to conserve resources and protect the environment.

    • Creating a chemical rejuvenation process to slash chemical waste.
    • Recycling and cleaning water, one of Texas’s most precious resources.
    • Cutting paper waste to nearly zero.
    • Inventing the iScrubber™, an industry leader in cutting air pollution.
       

    “We can set an industry standard for being environmentally friendly,” said
    Administrative Manager Dan Crownover, whose grandfather founded
    Texas Nameplate in 1946. “It’s also the right thing to do.”

    Texas Nameplate employees hope their efforts will influence competitors
    to make more environmentally conscious choices, as well.

    “We try our best to limit and recycle or reuse anything we can,” Chemical
    Specialist Ron Shouse said. “Not only does this drive our cost down, it
    means we dispose of less waste, which is better for the environment. We’d
    like to see anybody that does chemical etching do this.”

    Texas Nameplate Co. has been serving customers in energy, transportation,
    marine, military, manufacturing and other sectors for more than
    70 years. Their plates can be found in the Arctic, the Antarctic and nearly
    every environment in between.

    Texas triple bottom line company creates facility with environment
    and employees in mind …

    (Lancaster, TEXAS) - Texas Nameplate Co. has created the industry
    standard with a cutting-edge manufacturing facility designed to protect
    employees, neighbors, and the environment. By keeping the heartbeat of
    their company and adopting the idea of operating and setting processes
    in place by using the Triple Bottom Line (TBL) principle, consisting of three
    P’s People, Planet, and Profit.

    After a year at their state-of-the-art facility in Lancaster, Texas Nameplate
    is seeing their investment in design pay off.

    “It’s very important that we try to reduce any chemical impact or environmental
    impact that we might have through our processes,” Chemical
    Specialist Ron Shouse said. “We’ve been working on this for numerous
    years, trying to better ourselves as far as our environmental footprint.”

    Construction of the new Texas Nameplate Complex is part of a series of
    green initiatives the company has undergone. By incorporating thoughtful,
    green design, Texas Nameplate has created a workplace that’s efficient
    and environmentally smart.

    “By creating a custom-designed complex, the new facilities allows for
    innovative processes, like water cleaning and acid rejuvenation.” Shouse
    said. Air scrubbers are not only cleaner for the environment, but they give
    employees a cleaner work environment.

    President and CEO Dale Crownover said his goal was to set the industry
    standard. The building is positioned to allow for as much natural light as
    possible, both to save energy and to boost employee morale. A separate
    chemical building was constructed with safety and health in mind.

    “We wanted to be a role model for protecting the environment,” Crownover
    said.

    marine, military, manufacturing and other sectors for more than 70

    Texas manufacturer eliminates waste through innovative acid rejuvenation ...

    (Lancaster, TEXAS) — Texas Nameplate has designed an exclusive acid rejuvenation program that has nearly eliminated acid waste from the chemical etching process.

    Chemical etching allows nameplates to survive harsh climates for a lifetime, even longer than engraving. A trio of chemicals is used to eat away metal precisely, but the decades-old process generates 6,000 of gallons of waste every year.

    Texas Nameplate created an innovative process (watch video) that uses sensors to balance the chemical mix automatically and exactly, cutting acid waste by more than 70%.

    After the etching is complete, the chemicals are rejuvenated and reused. The acid is pumped through specialty plumbing into a separate building, where it is stored and used again. Most companies use these chemicals only once.

    “It used to be every acid that touched a piece of metal was bad acid,” Administrative Manager Dan Crownover said. “Now, we’re able to take the bad acid, remove only the small amount that is actually bad, and just pump that good acid right back over and reuse it over again.” Crownover said the environmental impact is real and immediate. Texas Nameplate employees hope other chemical etching companies will adopt similar programs to reduce their waste, too.

    “I think every company has a responsibility to the people of the community, not to be a contaminant to their community,” Chemical Specialist Ron Shouse said. “They should do everything possible mechanically, physically to keep from affecting their neighbors. You don’t want to be living next door to somebody who is polluting your environment.”

    Texas Nameplate Co. Has been serving customers in energy, transportation, marine, military, manufacturing and other sectors for more than 70 years. Their plates can be found in the Arctic, the Antarctic and nearly every environment in between.

    Unlike traditional, painted metal nameplates, TNC's 2D materix codes are chemically etched, meaning the codes can last a lifetime, withstanding harsh environments like salt water, outdoor elements common in oil fields and extreme temperatures and sun exposure prevalent in the solar and energy industries. Our patented process of chemical etching allows for these codes to be read electronically even after the color fades away. 

    The DIGITAL NAMEPLATE® process covered by U.S. Patent No. 8,540,285 enables TNC to chemically etch QR codes and UIDs on traditional metal nameplates.
