Being a socially responsible company is not only about protecting the environment but also about treating employees well and supporting the communities where they live and work. Northwest Pipe is committed to all three.
One of the ways we benefit the environment is inherent to the products we produce: steel is readily recycled. According to the Steel Recycling Institute, steel is North America’s most recycled material, with more recycled annually than paper, plastic, aluminum, and glass combined. In fact, we manufacture our pipe with a combination of raw and recycled materials.
Safety and training are huge concerns for us too. Our manufacturing facilities compete every year for the Northwest Pipe Benchmark Award, given to the plant with the strongest mix of achievements including safety. We also help employees develop and hone their professional skills through workshops and classes.
Another way Northwest Pipe employees benefit is through our college scholarship pool. Each year we award up to 15 scholarships to dependents of employees.
