Sustainable Changes

The BILCO® Company, in following the lead of its corporate parent AmesburyTruth™, has taken bold steps to prioritize environmental sustainability by improving processes at facilities. Reducing waste by making packaging recyclable, developing returnable packaging, and regrinding scrap to use in products are among the initiatives BILCO and AmesburyTruth have taken to support sustainability. The improved processes reduce waste within the supply chain, save money, and contribute to a more sustainable future.

BILCO implemented 100% recyclable packaging for its Bil-Guard® 2.0 roof hatch railing system at its facilities. The packaging is now made solely of cardboard, which is completely recyclable. By redesigning large boxes and reconfiguring the way the product fits in the box, the company eliminated foam from its packaging materials. The reconfiguration allowed BILCO to fit most of the rails in just one box for the customer.

For over 90 years, The BILCO Company has been a building industry pioneer in the design and development of specialty access products. Over these years, the company has built a reputation among architects and engineers for products that are unequaled in design and workmanship. BILCO offers a line of roof hatches, automatic fire vents, floor access doors, and a complete line of residential access products.
