Genyk is, and will continue to be, constantly looking for innovative methods of using less energy, conserving natural resources, and promoting the use of recycled products.
Our manufacturing plant, located in Shawinigan, QC, has installed an industry-leading, industry-only, water re-capture system. The water used in some of our polyurethane products is 100% captured rainwater. In some regions, Genyk has introduced a drum return program to ensure the safe management of waste materials and the surety of recycled packaging.
Genyk is constantly challenging ourselves to be environmentally responsible – it is an enduring goal.
Genyk is proud to proclaim – Made in Canada, By Canadians, For Canadians.
Not only because we strive to be a community partner; not only because we are in tune with the distinctiveness of the Canadian environment; and not only because we see the value in the economic reality of ‘buying local’ – but because the entire staff of Genyk lives where our products are manufactured and sold.
We live here, we work here, and thus, we will protect our community.
Sustainable and Renewable Products
Genyk uses industry leading percentages of recycled content and plant-based ingredients in all our polyurethane products.
Genyk’s spray foam products exceed LEED requirements for post-consumer and post-industrial recycled content.
Further, our use of Lavender and other plant-based ingredients exceed 15% of our finished product – an industry leading commitment. Genyk products are GreenGuard Gold certified – zero VOCs, zero Ozone-Depletion and a Global Warming Potential of less than one.
Genyk is committed to environmental responsibility. And our actions speak louder than our words.
The pillars of Genyk’s commitment demonstrate our promise – locally manufactured, dedicated to sustainable products and a promise of ecological innovation.
