Trautman Art Glass, Inc. is committed to energy efficiency as well as environmental responsibility. In this facility we have installed a highly efficient air filtration system for hazardous air pollutants (HAPS), which meets or exceeds the new Oregon DEQ requirements. We are happy that we are finally up and running!
Trautman Art Glass Inc. is proud to announce we have joined the Green Power Initiative by Portland General Electric! Wilsonville Oregon, where we make our fine colored borosilicate glass, has become an EPA Green Power Community. Glass manufacturing is a power intensive industry, and TAG Inc. believes it is better for our customers, our employees, our neighbors and our planet to reduce the overall carbon footprint of our facility. Plus, our purchase of renewable power from PGE encourages the development of additional renewable sources of energy in our region.
Trautman Art Glass, Inc. is the second factory built by Paul Trautman to manufacture specialty colored borosilicate glass for the artist market. Paul invented the machines, the processes and the recipes to make this product in the 1980s, and built the world’s first colored borosilicate glass rod factory in the Portland area. Since that time, the colored borosilicate market has grown immensely. TAG makes what is widely considered to be the finest glass on the market for torch or “lampwork” artists, used in collectible marbles, sculptures, ornaments, jewelry, barware and other artistic applications. We are a little company serving the globe with a high-quality handmade product from our humble Portland-area home.
As glass manufacturers, we are committed to making the highest quality product. As responsible global citizens, we are committed to being stewards of the environment, and we are proud to take that stand in an international marketplace. By making a commitment to renewable power, we are joining more than 110,000 local households and businesses who are already demonstrating their environmental stewardship. Together, we are avoiding more than 1 billion pounds of carbon dioxide being put into our regional air system annually. This is the equivalent of taking more than 134,000 cars off the road for one year. We feel this helps offset the carbon footprint created when we ship our product around the country and the world. Every little bit helps.
We have the power to make a difference. We buy renewable energy from PGE.
