At Anderson Development Company we recognize the importance of being a sustainable company and are dedicated to devoting our organization to efforts aimed at fulfilling this purpose. As part of our journey towards sustainability we recently participated in a “Together for Sustainability” (TfS) audit in an effort to learn how we can become more sustainable, as we work to strengthen our ability to serve our customers. Anderson Development this wasn’t just about checking a box for our customers; it was an opportunity for our company to grow, and to demonstrate our commitment to being a sustainable company. Participating in the TfS audit taught us a few things and also validated that our efforts towards sustainability thus far have been successful and that we are doing great things.

TfS is an independent organization that was originally created by chemical companies with the goal of assessing, auditing and improving the sustainability practices within their global supply chains. After it was setup, TfS was “set free” from its founders, so that it can provide objective, independent insight into companies. The initiative is based on good practices and builds on established principles such as United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), Responsible Care Global Charter and more. In order to provide this insight, it audits and assess its subjects, covering topics relevant to sustainability including environment, health and safety, human rights and labor relations.

In preparation for the audit we conducted a gap analysis, and while we did discover some gaps we were able to close many of these during the preparation phase, and of course we continue to put efforts towards others. While we faired very well on our TfS audit scoring a 190 out of 200 possible points, we do not plan to rest on our laurels. We realize we are not perfect and we continue to focus on areas where we can improve as a company, and we continue to evaluate ways in which we can become even more sustainable than we are today.

Sustainability is often defined as “meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” As a sustainable company, continual improvement is always on the forefront of our minds and actions. We look forward to improving and implementing new practices that can have a positive environmental or social impact on our local and global communities and to continue on in our journey of sustainability.

“Open Doors, Open Minds. Inspire the next generation of manufacturers.”

This is exactly what Anderson Development is doing when we open our doors to the students of Lenawee County. For the third year, Lenawee County participated in Manufacturing Day. This year, Anderson Development welcomed several students on October 4th for Manufacturing Day. The students were provided a tour of our R&D facilities, production plant, and had the opportunity to meet with many chemists and engineers. It is part of Anderson Development’s mission to help students learn about the many opportunities within manufacturing. By doing so, students can see how we apply what they learn in school, the various types of materials we produce and the types of potential career opportunities that are available to them within the chemical manufacturing industry.

•For every $1.00 spent in manufacturing, another $1.89 is added to the economy.

•Manufacturers have one of the highest percentages of workers who are eligible for health benefits provided by their employer.
•Over the next decade, nearly 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will likely be needed, and 2 million are expected to go unfilled due to the skills gap.

Anderson Development Company was eager to participate in the iChallengeU program through Michigan Works! Southeast again this year. This is Anderson Development Company’s fourth year of welcoming students into our facility and presenting them with a challenge to solve.

iChallengeU is a two week educational program, providing high school students the opportunity develop solutions to real world business problems. After the students have developed an answer to the given issue, they present a 10 minute pitch to a panel of 5 judges. The competition was hosted by Baker College in Jackson, Michigan on July 20, 2018.

This year, the students were tasked with the challenge of “How can Anderson Development make manual data entry, specifically expense reporting, more efficient?” The team representing Anderson Development Company, consisted of Lydia Lopez of Tecumseh High School, Destiny Smiddy, Mitchell, Sielsky and Keito Pifer, all Adrian High School. The students were led by educator April Platt of the Lenawee ISD. Jessica Vorhees, Accounting Associate, was the group’s primary contact from Anderson Development Company.

Over the course of the program, the students examined eight solutions. The team ultimately chose one solution to present to Anderson Development Company and for their presentation. The solution could save the company a significant amount of time and money. Overall, the team successfully eliminated a great deal of time in the data entry process and Anderson Development Company will most likely implement some of their ideas in the near future.

On behalf of Anderson Development Company and Wacker Chemical Corporation, we wish to extend our gratitude and thanks to all the county and city participants who took time on Saturday, May 12, 2018 to bring their household waste to Anderson’s Facility on E. Michigan Street for proper handling and disposal. Anderson has been providing this service to the community for many years. Despite the weather, residents and volunteer workers from Anderson and Wacker remained enthusiastic about making sure that hazardous materials from their homes and community were handled properly. In order to better provide this community service, Anderson and Wacker joined forces and offer the community the opportunity to bring unwanted materials to our respective sites for proper handling and disposal.

“Household materials can be an overlooked and misunderstood source of hazardous materials which could damage the environment. As part of the community, our companies are happy to help our neighbors by taking in these materials and making sure that they are disposed of properly to keep our community safe. We are proud of how we have been able to provide this service to the community each year and look forward to being able to help our community with this in the future. Proper disposal of these household waste materials not only prevents them from entering into our environment, it helps make our community a nicer place to live.”

-Mark Kramer, President & CEO of Anderson Development Company

“Wacker is pleased to collaborate with our partner Anderson Development Company by co-sponsoring the 21st Annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day.For the residents of Lenawee County, providing this service as a way to dispose of hazardous household waste in an environmentally responsible manner brings community and business together to achieve our common goal: protecting our natural resources. In conjunction with the Stubnitz Environmental Education Center, our community friends and families have the opportunity to also enjoy the great outdoors and experience Mother Nature at her best. I am truly impressed with each year’s turnout. Thanks to our volunteer employees for doing such a wonderful job of hosting and working the event. And to our community members, thank you for doing your part to help protect our environment.”

-David Wilhoit, President and CEO, Wacker Chemical Corporation

Nicole Collett, Anderson Environmental Manager reported that we collected materials including, flammable liquids, paints, propane, spray cans, fire extinguishers, products containing mercury, pesticides, acids, bases, batteries, fluorescent bulbs, and other materials. A total of 45,008 pounds of material was collected during this event.

This community-wide event coincided with two weeks of similar disposal opportunities of other materials sponsored by Lenawee County Solid Waste Coordinating Committee, the Lenawee County Solid Waste Department, Habitat for Humanity of Lenawee County, Cobalt Holdings, Greenjak, Dart Industries, and other valued supporting organizations. Anderson and Wacker also sponsored an event at the Stubnitz Environmental Education Center featuring free flowers for special contributors, nature walks, and an animal demonstration for children.

Thank you to all the Lenawee County Residents for bringing in their household waste, program sponsors and co-sponsors and especially all the employee volunteers who worked this event in making it such a huge success.
