Akebono manufactures brakes and has machines the leak fluids such as coolant and hydraulic oils, constantly. We were using gray disposable absorbents in which were costly for purchasing and disposing of. In addition, the disposables were left all over the ground and underneath machines.

ITU AbsorbTech delivered as promised!

At first I was a little bit skeptical on how ITU AbsorbTech’s system of cleaning and delivering oil pads would work.

Very good and reliable partner.

SorbIts® takes care of oil leaks to make sure we don’t have people walking through oil and slipping and falling. Last year, we saved 33,257 lbs of wiping towels and 2,059 lbs of waste oil absorbents from going to the landfill.   ITU AbsorbTech is a very good and reliable partner for Webcrafters.

Our facility looks better and is better.

We were previously using disposable absorbent pads, and it was very expensive to have the pads picked up and disposed of. What I like about the SorbIts® program is the pickup and delivery and also having the pads washed and reused, which helps in our compliance.  The SorbIts® program supports our safety with no more… Read more “Our facility looks better and is better.”
