Griffin Industries

Machining, Tooling, and Foundry Support

Griffin Industries is Using Renewable Energy

Griffin Industries has installed a roof mounted 114KW solar PV system.  With the help of Eland Electric we were able to seamlessly integrate the solar power into our business operations.  We anticipate the system providing enough electricity to power approximately 40% of our CNC machines.

As a prototype manufacturer, the ability to promote green energy and reduce monthly expenses will help us retain existing customers and attract new.   Decreasing expenditures allows Griffin to continue to give competitive quotes for program management, foundry tooling, casting design, machining, and the rapid prototype services we provide.  Additionally, the savings allows continued investment in state of the art technology and top notch employees.  This enables Griffin to continue to provide the excellent service and rapid turnaround our customers have grown to expect.

Solar installation makes sense not only from a business viewpoint, but also as an environmental responsibility. We have not only decreased our carbon footprint by the equivalent of nearly 10 acres of US forests, but generate enough power in one month to charge 630 electric cars, or power the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree for 450 nights!

The forward thinking management of Griffin Industries has blessed our organization with more than 30 years of continued business operations.  The ongoing improvements and commitment to customer service excellence will reward us many more years of being a top provider for prototype programs from start to finish!
