AMG Chrome has earnt a reputation for environmental responsibility, a reputation which extends beyond the manufacture of our products, and the industries they support, and into all aspects of the way we conduct our business.
Two principles of sustainable development remain central to AMG Chrome’s core activities. The first involves servicing the green economy, acting as a key link in the supply chain for the transportation, nuclear, advanced materials and recycling industries, each of which will play a vital role in addressing the ongoing challenges of climate change, waste reduction and pollution elimination.
At the same time AMG Chrome is committed to measuring and minimizing the environmental footprint associated with its own manufacturing operations.
