Innovations in Manufacturing
Dixon Golf made the first significant innovation in golf in nearly a decade in 2008 when the Dixon Earth ball was released. Leading golf in the concept of sustainability, Dixon Golf manufactures golf balls that are both high performance and 100 percent recyclable.
Dixon Golf's manufacturing facility meets the highest standards of sustainability. It is lit by LED lights, its energy comes in large part from solar panels, it has better air quality and lower VOC's compared to manufacturing facilities of its kind, and recycles it's water.
The environment is not only put first where products and manufacturing are concerned, but in Dixon Golf's day-to-day operations as well. There are no disposable water bottles in the office, invoices are sent exclusively through e-mail, and the vast majority of its essential documents are stored electronically.
Dixon Golf also encourages its employees to carpool or use public transportation to further reduce the carbon emissions attributable to Dixon Golf. In fact, the corporate headquarters for Dixon Golf is located at the headquarters of a light rail mass transit system.
From packaging to point-of-purchase materials, Dixon Golf always looks for the greenest solutions to its print needs. The use of Recycled Kraft paper, SEC Certified bond paper, and polystygreen (recycled styrene) are just a few of those solutions. Dixon Golf makes every effort to use materials from recycled or renewable sources which goes beyond golf balls. Golf gear such as hats made from recycled water bottles and shirts made from bamboo.
Dixon in the Community
The efforts of Dixon Golf to save the Earth go beyond the environment. Dixon Golf also donates ten percent of all its profits to charities and sponsors more charity golf tournaments than any other company, not just in golf.
Dixon Golf is proof positive that small sacrifices are necessary to improve our environment, just not in the playability of its golf balls.
A Model of Sustainability.
The Tempe Transportation Center (TTC) is a brand new State-of-the-Art Facility which holds a Gold LEED Accreditation from the USGBC and currently seeking Platinum status.
Located at the heart of downtown Tempe, the TTC recycles water internally and collects rainfall through outdoor drains which are both used in the irrigation system for its surrounding desert landscaping and Sonoran Desert roof garden. The garden also serves as a heat reduction and absorbent system.
Solar panels located on the building's exterior provide a natural source of energy. Natural lighting and special double-pane glass with exterior and interior screens help bring light in while minimizing the heat transferred through traditional window treatments. The core of the building serves as a concrete division or buffer on the warmest side of the building which faces the afternoon sun.
Naturally the TTC also serves as the transportation hub for buses, shuttles and the light rail transit system. Located next to the Arizona State University's Sun Devil Stadium and Wells Fargo Arena, the TTC is a haven of activity for people of all ages and walks of life.
