The Andersen Company recycles old rubber mats
Florida Tire Recycling Inc. (FTR) has entered into a
partnership with The Andersen Company, whereby FTR will
accept used flooring mats from Andersen and its clients
and recycle the discarded material producing a rubber
powder that will be used in the production of new rubber
mats and other products. Until today, worn rubber mats
were thrown away and disposed of in landfills with no
recycling possibilities. This highly customized, closed-loop
program designed by FTR is the first of its kind to be
implemented in the rubber mat industry.
This partnership will allow Andersen to offer customers
a take-back program where old mats can be collected and
used in the creation of new mats and other rubber products.
FTR’s grinding technologies have the ability to customize
the size and type of rubber powder manufactured, giving
Andersen the opportunity to incorporate a broad range
of rubber powders into additional applications without
large scale investments.
