Haynes International, headquartered in Kokomo, is a leading developer, manufacturer, and marketer of high performance nickel- and cobalt-based alloys used in corrosion and high-temperature applications. After receiving CHIP funds from our office in 2010, Haynes International's staff will be able to see significantly better. Their $400,000 grant (that cost at least $800,000 all said and done) retrofitted four buildings at their Kokomo plant. These savings are estimated to save around $135,000 per year!
Energy conservation is nothing new to Haynes International, and these lighting retrofits are just part of their ongoing commitment. During the past three years, Haynes implemented an ISO 14001 certified Environmental Management System (EMS) in 2007. Through the EMS, Haynes has implemented programs to achieve reductions in electricity and natural gas usage. These programs are continually tracked and the metrics are communicated within the organization.
Many thanks to the folks at Haynes International for allowing us to visit. We look forward to the great things in store for you in the future.
Haynes International received CHIP funds through the Indiana Office of Energy Development. These funds were made available through the U.S. Department of Energy's State Energy Program (SEP), funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
