When fume extraction supplier ULT entered the US market in early 2017, the company made a big promise: “We will plant a tree for every unit sold in the US.” Now that promise was kept.
On Friday, May 17th, the company fulfilled its commitment by supporting the planting of native tree and shrubs seedlings in Mequon, Wisconsin. They paid the transportation costs for 150 City of Milwaukee children to plant seedlings at Mequon Nature Preserve (MNP).
Wolfgang Koehler, CEO explains: “In addition to contributing to environmental and nature support as promised, we decided to support school kids from the Milwaukee Public School System in experiencing nature positively. We do know that the very tied financial situation often does not allow for field trips like this. That’s why we had decided together with the Mequon Nature Preserve to bringing kids to the Nature Preserve. It is within our responsibility to make kids aware of the fragile balance in nature and the fact, that even small things like seedlings can make a huge positive impact.
The 444-acre Mequon Nature Preserve’s mission is to transform agricultural fields into a mosaic of historical forests, prairies and wetlands. Additionally, educational programming is provided to 10,000 children and adults annually to create an appreciation and understanding of nature, its complexity and fragility.
The company is focused on air cleaning solutions for several industries and applications. In addition to providing customers with welding fume extraction technology, systems for laser and soldering fume extraction, dust collection, filtration of gases, vapors and odors are now to support American companies to protect their values in the form of employees, machinery and products.
