Sustainability at AVS Römer

As a family business with headquarters in the middle of the Bavarian Forest, the topic of sustainability is particularly close to our hearts. Sustainability is a state of mind. Therefore, it affects all areas – from production to the company building to the behavior of each individual. We at AVS Römer show responsibility for people and the environment and are constantly working on further developments and new solutions.

We live sustainability

  • Energy efficient thanks to photovoltaic systemAt our company headquarters in Grafenau, we have our own photovoltaic system. With this, we already generate 14% of the electricity we need. 
  • Reduced CO₂ emissions
    In 2019, we reduced CO₂ emissions by 212,530 kg during production.
  • We promote e-mobility
    Employees and visitors can charge their electric vehicles free of charge at four electric charging stations on the company premises.
  • More space for flora and fauna
    We have planted over 120 trees and 250 shrubs on the company’s property. Created habitats provide perfect retreats for insects, small rodents and lizards.

Sustainable production and pollutant-free products

High in-house production depth

We manufacture the components plastic body, steel claws and the piece sleeve made of brass on site. Only the O-rings are supplied. This avoids countless trips by suppliers. Raw materials are stored with foresight. In the case of necessary travel routes, we optimize them as far as possible, taking ecological aspects into account.

In the production process, heat energy – for example the residual heat from spraying machines – is reused thanks to heat recovery and hydraulic cooling systems.

Pollutant-free production and products

During the processing of raw materials, such as aluminum, plastic, brass or stainless steel, any pollutants produced are completely captured by filter systems. Our certified German disposal partner then recycles them in an environmentally friendly manner and returns them to the recycling chain down to the smallest chip.

Use of pendulum tanks

To avoid waste, we use so-called shuttle containers in shipping wherever possible. In doing so, we provide our suppliers with reusable containers. We also pay attention to conserving resources in other ways during storage. For example, we switched from plastic to paper in temporary storage.

A brief look into the future

Digitization

We are currently converting to automated machine data collection to eliminate paper piles and waste.

Product Lifecycle Management

For even greater transparency, we will evaluate the recyclability of all products and create product-related certificates.
