Fritz-Pak Corporation has grown steadily since its inception ten years ago. We are happy to announce that in order to accommodate our rate of expansion and make room for future growth we have just completed building our own facility in Mesquite, TX, a suburb of Dallas.
In designing our new 31,000 square ft. space, the carbon footprint has been reduced in a number of ways. It is a tilt-up concrete construction with stained and polished concrete floors throughout the office space. The building’s spatial orientation takes advantage of prevailing wind flow to promote forced air natural heating and cooling in the warehouse. Natural light floods the space due to the generous use of windows and interior glass panels in the office, and skylights in the warehouse, lessening our electricity requirements. Temperature loss is reduced through the use of Low E glass. Motion-sensor lights throughout the building further reduce energy waste.
The outside was designed following xeriscape practices, which is landscaping using native and other low-water use plants. Periodic droughts must be expected in our region of North Texas, so we have planned to consume much less water than the typical commercial landscaping current in the area.
Fritz-Pak has long taken an eco-friendly stance. All Fritz-Pak admixtures are bio-degradable, and many have applications that help with environmental compliance issues. Our production process of blending and packaging powdered admixtures requires no discharges into the water system. All of our boxes are made with recycled cardboard and paper that comes from sustainable harvested forests.
We at Fritz-Pak look forward to serving your needs even better from our new facility.
