You spend approximately 40% of your week at work. Wouldn’t you like to use that time and make a difference? One of the things our employees like the most working at Miltec UV is that they know that what we do makes a real difference every day, not just in our community, but around the world. The systems we build are used to make hundreds, if not thousands of products used every day (even products you don’t see like optical fiber cables and semiconductor parts) by means of a green technology.
Make a Difference With Miltec
As a family owned business making a difference comes naturally. Most of our employees are residents of Queen Anne’s County. Our employees are active in the local school systems and support local businesses. We are a company built around our community, by members of the community and for the world at large. As such, it is our goal to make a difference both locally and internationally.
OYSTER RECOVERY PARTNERSHIP
Miltec is located on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay in the state of Maryland. Because we care about our environment we have recently become involved in the Oyster Recovery Partnership-Operation Build a Reef. As part of this project we have contributed 26,000 baby oysters. These baby oysters will help restore a 13-acre oyster sanctuary. When the oysters we have contributed become adults they will filter 1,3000,000 gallons of water each day.
The Oyster Recovery Partnership has also partnered with the Severn River Association. The ultimate goal is to plant over 50 million baby oysters. This partnership is a great opportunity to provide positive results on human lifestyle and health in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. The restoration of the oyster sanctuary will help lower harmful nutrients in our waterways and improve our marine environment.
HAVEN MINISTRIES-RUN 4 SHELTER
For several years, Miltec has been involved with Haven Ministries, a non-profit organization that provides food and shelter for the homeless and less fortunate of Queen Anne’s County. Working with Haven Ministries is a great way for our company and our employees to give back. From their 5K run, to donating to their local thrift shop and volunteering to serve food at their homeless shelter, there are opportunities for our entire team to make a difference.
Within Miltec we have created a unique way to raise money for Haven Ministries. Miltec UV launched our First Annual Silent Auction in the Fall of 2015. Employees of Miltec not only enjoy donating a variety of home goods, jewelry and sporting goods but we also enjoy the competition of the bidding wars that ensue. We look forward to this year’s silent auction event where participants can bid online or in house.
Our involvement with the Oyster Recovery Partnership and Haven Ministries makes sense because our entire philosophy revolves around making a difference in the world. Our UV technology not only allows us to lessen our environmental footprint but also our customers’ footprint. By using UV curing our customers can manufacture products without harmful solvents. Using less energy and parts provides a positive impact on our environment and helps our customers’ save money. In addition, using UV technology reduces the amount of VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) released into the atmosphere.
Our environmental consciousness extends beyond our green technology into our internal green processes and procedures. Here at Miltec, we strive to recycle all that we can including paper, aluminum, parts, and energy! Our entire team works under the 5S organization method
- Set in Order
The 5S method helps us to eliminate error and waste, saving time, energy, and money.
Miltec’s commitment to making a difference shows through everything we do, whether it’s helping local environmental programs, giving back within the Queen Anne’s community, or helping create a green earth for the future to come. Many of our employees chose to work at Miltec because of our philosophy of giving back and making a difference. We pride ourselves in helping others and our employees can say the same.
While many employees participate in the opportunities offered through Miltec, you will also find them volunteering outside of Miltec. Our employees run marathons for charity, participate in local beach clean ups, promote and participate in Earth Hour, distribute food to those in need, help restore our oyster population in the local waterways, mentor local students and much more.
