Walking with Mother Earth
As a corporate member of planet Earth, THK considers good environmental practices an important business resource.
To conduct business activities on the world stage, we consider that our management, technological development and manufacturing must be informed by awareness of the earth, nature and the environment. We believe that THK must play an important role in the development of environmentally friendly products and activities that will protect the future of the environment.
As a business in the 21st century, focusing on environmental concerns is vital. We adhere to two basic concepts regarding environment protection . The first is the development of our business policy to save energy in production, recycle products, and solve the problem of waste disposal in our manufacturing stages and business activities. We are undertaking various activities for environmental protection in all our plants. The second is the development of products that can themselves contribute to the protection of the environment . The technical innovation of rolling contact utilized in our LM Guides , for example, can save great amounts of energy when employed in the guidance system of any machine.
