Environment & Sustainability

All of us have a responsibility to protect our environment, manufacturing facilities like ours have an even greater duty to protect our planet.  At Global Tungsten & Powders, this is an obligation we take very seriously.  Our production facilities are located in and around rural parts of the countries we operate in; from our headquarters in Towanda, Pennsylvania, to our European tungsten and tungsten carbide manufacturing plant in Bruntal, in the Czech Republic, to our tungsten carbide-cobalt / zinc reclaim facility in Jyväskylä, Finland.  Because of our location, many of our employees spend a great deal of time enjoying the outdoors, this affords us a special bond with our natural surroundings.  With this in mind, all our employees understand the need to exceed all applicable laws and regulations.  We work closely with local, state and federal agencies to ensure the safety of our communities and beyond.
