Solon Specialty Wire Co. – Solon, OH
Solon Specialty Wire Co. (Branch 0537), located in Solon, Ohio, produces round specialty wires and flat-shaped, non-ferrous wires for the construction, telecommunication, automotive, food packaging, and medical industries.
Since 2009, Solon Specialty Wire has made environmental sustainability a priority in the way they operate. Projects the branch has completed include:
- Packaging materials
- Aluminum cans
- Scrap metal
- Oil and solvents
- Used oil
- Oil absorbents
- Spent sulfuric acid
The facility is currently working to further reduce packaging materials and reduce transportation costs. Reducing the amount of scrap steel that is sent for recycling has been a recent focus as well. Solon Specialty Wire is also striving to be landfill free, and is close to achieving this prestigious goal.
Partnering with the local MRDD Board and the SAW program, Solon has been able to make a win-win partnership by providing jobs for a community that needs the work as well as sharing the desire to recycle rather than fill the local landfill. Annually, the facility holds coat and food drives for families in need in the community.
