Eco Awareness

Like many companies, sustainability has become integrated in the fabric of our business, impacting even small day-to-day choices. Colwell considers sustainability along four planks: toxicity, energy impact, sustainability and efficiency. We have made considerable strides in all four areas. Each order is optimized to minimize scrap, allowing us to use fewer natural resources, and we have systems in place for solvent and heat recovery that help reduce our carbon footprint.

Every year, our capabilities and workflow strategies are strengthened and redistributed to deliver greater efficiency and faster turnaround.

Colwell’s capabilities have continued to expand, widening the industries we serve and creating endless possibilities. Colwell now houses the capabilities to work with a variety of markets; the main markets Colwell serves include: Paint & Coatings, Building Products, Cosmetics, and Window Treatment & Textiles.

Sister company, Technical Finishing Services, handles all stain & paint samples. Regardless of run size, TFS can help you develop & produce a variety of cost effective sampling solutions. Interested in utilizing real wood samples of your very own coatings? Contact a rep to learn more!
