PTC's sustainable steel tubing, pipe, and bars

As a steel tubing, pipe, and bar manufacturer established with roots dating back 100 years, our management team has committed to preserve the environment while operating safe-efficient manufacturing facilities with a high moral compass.  

Our focus on sustainability is highlighted throughout the organization; a cross functional Sustainability Committee was formed in 2023 with members from our EHS, Quality, Sales, and Human Resources departments. This team formulates program development, sustainability goals, and reduction strategies across the corporation.  

The company will continue to drive our sustainability efforts through a robust pre-planning review for all new equipment and processes, employee training program to ensure employees make correct and informed decisions, properly maintaining equipment to ensure efficient operation, and tracking key performance indicators to gauge the effectiveness of our program.


Our employees and communities surrounding our operations are essential to the success of our company. The safety of our employees and our impact on the environment are values we place at the forefront of operations. 

Our EHS team collaborates across all areas of our business to establish a culture reducing environmental impact.  

Greenhouse Gasses

In today’s business environment focus is centered around climate change. 

PTC understands the importance of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to preserve a healthy environment for future generations. We’re currently instituting a greenhouse gas tracking program to monitor Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions associated with our operations.  

The company will ensure emission sources are properly maintained and operating efficiently. New technologies will be incorporated, where feasible, to reduce our impact on the world’s climate.

Waste Generation

PTC realizes that waste is not conducive to sustainable operations. PTC works actively to eliminate and repurpose waste generated as part of our operations. 

Our company tracks and sets goals to minimize the impacts of waste in our operations — with a key focus currently in eliminating waste at its source.

Energy Conservation

PTC acknowledges that consuming natural resources adversely affects our environment whether from extraction, processing, or consumption. 

Our company is tracking and setting goals to reduce our consumption of natural resources toward more sustainable operations.  

Key focus is on water, electricity, and natural gas consumption. Our efforts in conservation extend to LED lighting retrofits, efficient cooling tower replacements, and variable frequency drive controls.   


Steel is the most recycled material in the world and PTC has had a long history with recycling steel pipe, tube, and bar scrap across our operations. 

We also actively recycle waste oils, scrap protectors, mill scale, spent acids, and various wood products.  

Our practices extend into our offices, recycling paper products and electronics.
