State program helps Liberty Lake’s Accra-Fab go both Green and Lean

It's been a while since we had a chance to salute area manufacturing firms. Not because they're not out there; we just haven't worked hard enough to find those good stories.

So today that task was made easier when the state Ecology Dept. sent us a link to a video made about Liberty Lake's contract manufacturer Accra-Fab Inc.

The video shows why Accra-Fab has moved into a Hazardous Waste and Toxics Reduction Program, operated by Ecology, to help firms save money by proper disposal of waste products.

Accra-Fab's Greg Konkol explains in the video how the company's focus on Lean Manufacturing is a natural fit with the waste program's push for Green waste treatment.

A press release from the state said the company saves $179,000 each year through Lean and Green efforts.

Also playing a key part in the focus are Impact Washington and Washington State University.
