Since 1898, New England Wire Technologies has been located in Lisbon, New Hampshire along the northern edge of the spectacular White Mountains and nestled along the banks of the beautiful Ammonoosuc River. Being part of a rural region for over 120 years, NEWT continues to be a steward of the environment and has a strong commitment to supporting the regional communities. At NEWT, we are continuously improving our operations to meet business objectives that provide sustainable growth for the company while evaluating all manufacturing investments for their impact on the environment.
Over our decades of growth, NEWT has continually assessed how our operations impact energy, water usage, and waste. This has led to acquisitions of equipment with energy saving functions, closed loop water systems, and technologies to reduce production related scrap. Early in 2020, we implemented our new ERP system to further refine our operations and improve our work flows. This will lead to better use of raw materials and subsequent reduction of waste. Our network of third-party companies is purchasing our recyclable waste and moving these materials to locations that are best suited to meet emerging circular economic objectives. These operational investments are ensuring NEWT is well positioned to meet our growing business needs as well as remaining a leading provider of employment for the region.
Being an integral part of the surrounding communities, NEWT takes pride in being active in supporting schools, hospitals, community service organizations, environmental organizations, and other institutions of importance to the region. Additionally, our employees are highly engaged in charitable activities holding quarterly fund drives to support both local and national level initiatives. By allowing our employees to leverage NEWT resources, we are helping ensure our rural communities grow and remain strong. Sustainability at NEWT is an obligation as we all need to be stewards of our environment and communities. In return, we help support maintainable business growth in our ever changing world.
