Contributing to the Community
Makor Haformaika takes part in a rehabilitation project for released prisoners. As part of this process, the Company employs, promotes and cultivates this group to ensure a meaningful process for each and every one of them.
In addition, the Company has employees from disadvantaged population groups, who arrive through the National Insurance Institute. The Company also employs young army veterans as part of a preferred work project.
Makor Haformaika works diligently and uncompromisingly on recycling and protecting the environment. Since 2007, the plant has used wood waste to generate heat for the plant’s work processes. The leftover wood or broken surfaces reach the plant, are disassembled into smaller pieces and then are redirected to an automatic fire system that can regulate the required amount of wood products with the appropriate volume of air. The wood is channeled to generate energy, and thus reduces the use of polluting fuels.
