Global Fiberglass Solutions Inc. (GFS) is an industrial recycling and green manufacturing firm headquartered at Highlands Campus Tech Centre in Bothell, Washington. Recently, the firm found success in CV’s 2019 Corporate Excellence Awards where they were selected as the Most Sustainable Fiberglass Recycling Company 2019 – North America. Following this win, we profile the firm to discover more about the outstanding services they have provide over the last decade.
Since its inception in 2009, GFS has focused on the growing demand for resource recovery of recyclable materials such as fiberglass and carbon fiber and create recycled products through a proprietary system. The firm’s goal is to reduce the surplus of non-decomposing waste that goes into landfills and the carbon footprint of industry players throughout the US, Europe, Asia, and other parts of the world.
Drawing on its extensive experience in producing innovative solutions for resource recovery, GFS stands at the forefront of the fiberglass and carbon fiber recycling industry, and the team believe that there is absolutely no downside in using clean waste technology.
Today, GFS is collaborating with international fiberglass manufacturers as well as local and national government agencies to build and manage facilities for collecting and recycling fiberglass. The recycled material has been used in producing railroad ties, utility poles, particle board and other post-consumer products, which are themselves recyclable and more durable than many alternatives. The company is at the forefront of developing technology that can change the way people around the world
dispose of millions of pounds of non-decomposing materials.
In addition to its Bothell headquarters, GFS also has offices in Hamburg in addition to its Bothell headquarters, GFS also has offices in Hamburg Germany, Hong Kong China, Royal City Washington, Sweetwater Texas and Newton Iowa.The firm provides industry enterprises and governmental agencies with solutions to windmill decommissioning and recycling, derelict boat recycling, airline composite carbon fiber recycling, industrial scrap recycling, and others.
Additionally, GFS has decommissioned and recycled a number of wind turbine blades that have outlived their lifespan. The lifespan of a typical wind turbine is 15 to 20 years, though the fiberglass can last well over 400 years in a landfill. This process provides an environmentally sustainable alternative for reuse of wind turbine blades that are damaged or non-functional. New products are created that can then be resold in consumer or industrial settings. This alternative to placing scrap material in the landfill or incinerator creates a sustainable solution for fiberglass waste.
Within the industrial scrap space, GFS has worked with a number of manufacturers to recycle and
reuse the leftover material from industrial manufacturing operations. This process prevents waste material from entering the landfill or incinerator and allows new products to be created. This provides an environmentally sustainable alternative for reuse of material formerly considered industrial waste. New products are created that can then be resold in consumer or industrial settings. This is an alternative to placing scrap material in the landfill or incinerator. Over the years, GFS has worked with manufacturers from a number of industries including airline manufacturers, wind turbine manufacturers, vehicle manufactures, and housing product manufacturers.
Fundamentally, as the world continues to open its eyes to the vast amount of damage that our waste is causing to the environment, firm’s such as GFS who are pioneers in the industrial recycling space will continue to grow and prosper.
Moving forward, the firm hope to build upon the remarkable accomplishments they have achieved over the years, especially following their recent success in Corporate Vision’s 2019 Corporate Excellence Awards where they were selected as the Most Sustainable Fiberglass Recycling Company 2019 – North America.
