Create a work environment in which our employees can develop their skills, build their careers and cultivate and pursue their professional interests.
Emphasis on corporate sustainability and aim to minimize the impact on the environment. Actively investing in and pursuing more efficient alternative energy sources and material recycling initiatives.
We seek to recycle returned products and process scraps to reduce the waste we send to landfill or to incineration facilities. We also sell our factory waste to local materials-recycling facilities, and part of this waste is sent to our suppliers for recycling. During the manufacturing process, we create process scraps that are leftover polymer films. In our manufacturing facilities, we sort, grind, wash and separate the returned products or process scraps into smaller parts based on their resin type and size. We then convert these small plastics parts into pellets to allow for easier distribution, compounding and remanufacturing. To further reduce our factory waste, we task our research and development officers with developing and advancing our mechanical recycling machines and the procedures to recycle reinforced polymer film, such as polymer-based textile composite materials, Tri-Tech™ materials and flocked materials.
Happy employees are the driving force of Bestway’s successful operations. We value our employees and create an environment in which employees are able to develop their talents and pursue their professional passions. And it shows. This is especially true in China, where our manufacturing facilities are located in our sites in Shanghai, and Nantong and Yancheng in the Jiangsu province in the inland eastern region of China, all within driving distance of each other in the Yangtze River Delta region and within driving distance of each other along the same highway for efficiency and logistical purposes. Up until recently, it was the norm for Chinese workers to migrate to cities such as Shanghai and Beijing only to return inland to their homes for the Chinese New Year. This "tide of return" began after the 2009 financial crisis, during which approximately 20 million migrant workers found themselves without work and were forced to return home. Since then, stimulus packages including investment in inland transportation development and increases in employment opportunities have made large interior cities increasingly attractive places to work for people from those regions, since they no longer need to make the personal sacrifices of leaving their families too far behind. With these incentives in place, Bestway has attracted more employees to retain over the past five years. Add that to the important fact that Bestway believes in promoting from within and you have a recipe for successful and happy employees.

In addition to recycling, Bestway utilizes one of the largest resources available to aid in creating more energy efficient manufacturing processes – the sun. Solar electricity is green, renewable, and doesn’t release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants. We installed 23,000 square meters of solar panels in the rooftop of our manufacturing facility in Nantong, which generated 4.7 million kilowatt-hour of energy,which is equivalent to approximately 8 % of the annual energy consumption of our Nantong manufacturing facility. We plan to install 22,000 square meters of solar panels in our manufacturing facilities in Nantong by September 2017.
In 2016, we participated in a public disclosure
program organized by Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP’) by reporting our sustainability efforts along with over 5,600 manufacturers globally, including information on energy use, emissions and wastes.
We were awarded the Best Chinese Supplier on climate change measures. Approximately 400 Chinese manufacturers participated in the program and reported their sustainability efforts, with over 5,625 companies responding in 2015. www.cdp.net.

We believe that manufacturing in-house enables us to continually enhance our production, technological and management capabilities to achieve greater production efficiency, reduce waste, and minimize costs while strictly controlling product quality across the value chain. This also ensures punctual product delivery, which in turn translates into happy customers and end-consumers, leading to repeat business opportunities and the strengthening of our brand. Our in-house manufacturing facilities are complemented by well-developed back-end infrastructure. In addition, our major suppliers of raw materials are among the top suppliers globally.
