ZaGO Manufacturing Company
Stays Globally Competitive By Installing Solar
(Newark, N.J., May
2, 2013): ZaGO Manufacturing Co. is pleased to announce that they
have gone solar at their headquarters and manufacturing operations,
based in Newark, New Jersey. This investment in solar power
increases their global competitiveness by lowering their operational
costs, allowing them to continue manufacturing all their innovative
sealing products at their Newark facility.
“Since we are here
in Newark for the long run, we are committed to investing in our
facility and decided to go solar,” explained Gail Friedberg, Vice
President of ZaGO. “We are proud that our 20-year old company was
‘Born in Newark’ since we started at the NJIT Business Incubator
back in 1993. After graduating from the incubator, we rented a
facility in Newark before buying this building ten years ago.”
“With a tough
economy, we investigated ways to curb our expenses and electricity
was a logical choice to consider,” added Harvey Rottenstrich,
President of ZaGO. “Being energy independent is important to us.
This decision not only lowers our operating costs, it reduces the
risk from the volatility of future electric prices. Solar is a great
hedge and our expenses are now more reliable. With the federal tax
credit and bonus depreciation, it made it very worthwhile to install
The 207 solar
modules in this system provide over 60% of their electricity
consumption. “This project means a lot to us since all of our
products are “Made in the U.S.A.”. By generating electricity through
solar, we are able to reduce our operating expenses and remain
competitive in the marketplace, while retaining valuable
manufacturing jobs in New Jersey.
