As the saying goes, “We’re all in this together.” That’s what Paige Electric believes in and they are committed to being good stewards of our precious planet and its limited resources both in their products and their practices.
Their Paige 1Pac cartons have brought recyclable wire and cable packaging to products that everyone assumed could never be packaged that way. Since their introduction, Paige estimates that they have prevented more than 10,000 trees from being converted into plywood reels and then ending up in a landfill.
Paige is also constantly striving to reduce its energy consumption. Their corporate headquarters has over 800 solar panels on the roof offsetting over 59% of our energy needs. Add to that newly installed low-energy fluorescent lighting and motion sensing light switches and we now consume 75% less energy than they did just 3 years ago. And it doesn’t stop there. Video conferencing to cut down on excessive travel, thermal curtains for heating and cooling, Energy Star™ monitors and paperless processes are among the many initiatives that make Paige a leader in environmental responsibility.

“Quality remains long after price is forgotten” – Upton Sinclair
In the early 1900’s, this is what the sign read in the window of all five Munro Mercantile locations that were spread out over Western Colorado. Over time customer needs have changed, but this is still the philosophy that guides Munro today.
Munro is a privately held, family operated company with over 100 years and five generations in business. In 1900, Fred Munro opened the first Munro Mercantile store and over the next 35 years expanded to 5 stores across Western Colorado. Not only did Munro survive tough times, including the Great Depression and the stock market crash of 1929, Munro went on to open S&M Supply, a mining supply house in 1936, and in 1965 they began to focus their business on moving and managing water and opened Munro Supply.
Munro supply specialized in pumps and related equipment, and quickly became recognized as a pump authority in the Colorado region.
Today, Allen Munro and his daughter, Katie Munro Powell, have broadened Munro’s focus significantly to serve a wide range of industries and develop innovative, problem solving products.
