August 4, 2017
Sustainability drives innovation at Cascade Engineering, and the plastic injection molding company is constantly driven toward innovation to better serve a wide variety of industries.
Cascade Engineering was established by Fred Keller in 1974 with the vision of a sustainable company that benefitted the community. Jeff Totten, chief engineer for the center for innovation, said the company’s business culture revolves around a concept called triple bottom line (TBL), which means the company’s outlook must focus on people, planet and profit. Boundaries are placed on business practices to ensure they factor in what is good for the people involved in Cascade Engineering and what is environmentally sustainable.
