Peterbilt Is a Leader In Environmental Responsibility
Peterbilt has a long history of producing high quality vehicles that appeal to its customers on many levels. In recent years, the company has moved towards ensuring that its manufacturing procedures – and the very trucks themselves – impact on the environment as little as possible. The company has achieved a great deal in a short time as it strives to lower the environmental impact that it has had on the environment.
Environmental issues are brought into the equation all the way through the design and manufacturing process. In some cases this means using materials which are recycled – and recyclable – so that there is little actual waste from the actual manufacturing process. In other cases it may mean that more innovation and consideration goes into the manufacture and design of vehicle engines to make them more energy efficient, in order to help conserve fuel.
The main environmental goal of the company is to have 97% of all waste produced at the offices and manufacturing plants diverted away from landfills through recycling programs.
The company employs many skilled laborers and trades people including assembly line workers ($39,500 annual salary), welders ($51,000-$64,000 annually), mechanics ($48,350 annual salary) and industrial electricians ($49,000-$53,000 annually), to name just a few.
Most positions in the automotive and trucking industries -including manufacturing plants – are union positions, so job security and wages are generally pretty secure.
