COMMUNITY

OUR COMMITMENT TO CORPORATE CITIZENSHIP

As a proud member of our community, we believe we all have a responsibility to contribute to our mutual well-being. That’s why we insist on sourcing our materials from domestic suppliers.

We also continually look for ways to reduce waste and extend the life of our customers’ equipment, making Albarrie a regular contributor to the Aluminum Extruders Council’s Fair Trade Initiative, which advocates for domestic aluminum extruders and suppliers.

Pancake Lunch - SPCA & Finding Them Homes

February 21st, 2017 – Our Pancake Lunch was a hit!

 

With the help of our awesome staff, pancakes and bacon were provided in exchange for a small donation to assist two local charities.  One employee also contributed homemade dog treats to help raise monies.

 

Together our staff raised $449! Albarrie matched this amount so we could donate to both the Barrie SPCA and Finding Them Homes.  To make a donation or to help either of these great organisations,  click a button below to be redirected.

T'IS THE SEASON: THE ALBARRIE FAMILY SHARES ITS JOY FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON WITH THE BARRIE COMMUNITY

Give back to your community, help others, local support

December 10th, 2015 – was a day of reciprocity for the Albarrie family.  Each employee was given one free run turkey to share with his or her family as a token of appreciation for everyone’s hard work and dedication in 2015; but the generosity didn’t stop there.  The gift of giving spread, sparking the innate desire to pay it forward.  A group of employees donated their turkeys to the less fortunate so they could enjoy a traditional turkey dinner over the Holidays.  A total of 12 turkeys were donated: six turkeys were delivered to the Salvation Army Bayside Center, matching the six turkeys sent to the Women & Children’s Shelter in Barrie, ON.

 

December 23rd, 2015  – the Albarrie organization will be donating unwrapped toys and imperishable food items to the Christmas Cheer Foundation in Barrie, ON.  Employees have contributed to this initiative during several holiday events and will continue to over the course of December, including our holiday potluck on the 15th.  We’re grateful that we can give back to the community we care for.

 

We encourage everyone who can help, to donate food, toys, or clothes to men and women who are unable to provide for their families this year.  For more information on how to donate to the Christmas Cheer Foundation, visit: www.christmascheerbarrie.com/donate-drop-off-locations/

SUSTAINABILITY

WORKING TOWARDS A BETTER WAY

Our commitment to sustainability is integrated into every one of our products. We’ve made it our mission to recognize and respond to the approaching pressures of climate change. Our products contribute to the improvement of our environment by reducing waste, protecting against spills and keeping impurities out of our air and water.

Our permeable, oil-immobilizing smart fabrics are a new green technology. They eliminate the need for energy-hungry pump and treat systems and significantly reduce environmental impacts associated with an oil spill by protecting water, land and wildlife from potential oil contamination or exposure. Our proprietary polymer blends are non-toxic, non-hazardous and environmentally friendly and can even be burned for fuel after they have been consumed.

Our seamless felt tubes reduce the incidence of scratches and damage during the manufacture of aluminum products, which in turn reduces the need to remelt and remanufacture – significantly saving energy.

Our air filtration components and dust collection systems keep particulates and greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere, helping us all breathe easier.

As a company, we have committed ourselves to continually improve the efficiency with which we use our resources. We specifically source our materials only from companies with a good environmental record and the highest level of integrity.

SUSTAINABILITY IS FOR EVERYONE

Our commitment to a secure and sustainable future extends to our customers’ businesses too. Our custom-made fabrics deliver higher performance and reduce the chances of containment failure and spills, while our expert maintenance services help extend the life of our products, which reduces energy costs and waste and benefits our customers’ bottom lines. In addition, our insistence on sourcing materials from domestic suppliers helps promote job stability and protection.
