Quality Policy/Environmental, Health, and Safety Policy

Quality Policy:

At Elyria Foundry, we seek to become a premier supplier of Iron Castings that meet or exceed customer, and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements for all customers and industries served. To achieve the goal, we must view quality as more than product integrity, and our quality program as more than process control. Elyria Foundry has made the commitment to continual improvement of our quality management system.
Our approach to quality includes modern technology and systematic manufacturing methods. But it begins long before that, with the building blocks of continuous, overall improvement:
Decentralization- Quality is not a staff function. Rather, it is the explicit responsibility of every person in every job in our company.
Training- We provide ongoing training—on the job, in the classroom, and through visits to customers, where our people can see the impact of their work firsthand.
Benchmarking- We strive to adopt the practices and technologies of the best companies in other industries, so that we can improve our own.
To us, quality is more than a program. Quality is an attitude. It is the motivation and the sense of responsibility that enable us to produce results that exceed our own expectations—not just once, but over and over again.

Environmental, Health, and Safety Policy:

Elyria Foundry and Hodge Foundry are committed to protecting the environment and the health and safety of our employees, our customers, and the community. This is the responsibility of both the management and the associates in all functions. We will strive to avoid any adverse impact to the environment and community from our operations, activities, products or services, while providing a safe and healthy working environment. At Elyria Foundry and Hodge Foundry, we accomplish these goals by developing and maintaining an Environmental Management System which ensures that we: 

  • Comply with all applicable environmental, health and safety (EHS) regulations and laws.
  • Provide and maintain a safe, healthy working environment for all associates, including temporary workers and contractors, consistent with regulatory requirements and best management practices.
  • As practicable, minimize toxic and hazardous materials used or generated by our operations. 
  • As practicable, recycle, conserve, and recover materials, water, and energy from our operations.
  • Provide appropriate levels of health and safety information, instruction, and training for all associates.
  • Involve management, associates, and contractors in EHS.
  • Define EHS responsibilities, accountability, and disciplinary action for nonconformance. 
  • Continuously enhance and improve our Environmental Management System to ensure its effectiveness in protecting the surrounding environment and occupational health and safety.  

At Elyria Foundry and Hodge Foundry, we recognize that our most valued assets are our associates and their safety is of the utmost importance to us. In addition, our core values drive us to do the right thing environmentally for our community—to reclaim, recycle, keep our air and water clean, and provide the cleanest and safest environment for people to live and work. All of us at Elyria Foundry and Hodge Foundry are a team working together to accomplish these goals.
