PORTAGE, Wis., Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PendaForm, was recently recognized as the winner of the New Product Innovation of the Year — co-presented by the Columbia County, Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation and Manufacturer's Council — for its invention, SiteSaver™. Heidi Bulgrin, Vice President-Green Technologies, at PendaForm made the announcement.
"The idea for SiteSaver was born due to the need for improved containment solutions on drilling sites," stated Ms. Bulgrin. "The methods being used were antiquated and, quite simply, did not work. Current methods leak, tear and they were slippery; all of which were concerning to the site owners," she added.
Engineered and designed by the PendaForm engineering staff, SiteSaver is made from durable HDPE sheets, and its seams are electro-fused together for a leak-proof base. It is corrosion proof and impermeable to hazardous fluids to protect the ground beneath the site from becoming contaminated. A one-acre SiteSaver pad can be installed in a single day.
To qualify for the Product Innovation Award, PendaForm has met stringent criteria. At the plant level, the ISO/ITS 16949 certified company had to show advances in its pollution control, recycling, and Green programs, as well as a commitment to employment and plant expansion. The introduction of SiteSaver, which is made from recycled materials and is also 100% recyclable, showcased PendaForm's contribution to protecting and improving local communities and the environment.
