Taco Operations & Practices
Our commitment to sustainability is woven into the fundamental fabric of our company. It is a core value for Taco President & CEO John Hazen White, Jr., the entire management team and all Taco employees.
This commitment is apparent in our business practices, day-to-day operations and long-term growth and development activities.
Sustainability begins with our headquarters building, a 1920's era mill building in an urban environment. Rather than demolish it and build a "modern" facility, we chose to retain this building and therefore "recycle" all the building materials it contains.
Within this former trolley barn and community landmark, we have retrofitted the modern systems needed for sustainable business operations.
A utilities master plan is our guide to efficiency use of energy and utilization of renewable energy, when feasible. With all facility improvements or expansions the plan requires us to utilize an existing utility whenever possible, for example when adding a radiant loop to the truck apron or increasing the lighting in our shipping facility. If we can capture waste heat from a process, we'll use it to heat a room.
Taco recycles the vast majority of all waste generated.
We take pains to provide all Taco employees with a safe, healthy and comfortable working environment.
We recognize our employees as our most valuable asset and treat them accordingly. Taco builds strong relationships with employees, their families and the community at large, on and off the job.
