When fume extraction supplier ULT (founded in Löbau, Germany) entered the U.S. market, the company made a promise: “We will plant a tree for every unit sold in the U.S.” Now, that promise has been kept: On May 17, 2019, ULT LLC (Mequon, WI) fulfilled its commitment by planting native tree and shrub seedlings in Mequon.

"We decided to support school kids from the Milwaukee Public School System in experiencing nature positively," says Wolfgang Koehler, ULT CEO. That’s why we decided, together with the Mequon Nature Preserve, to bringing kids to the Nature Preserve." The kids aided in planting the trees.

The Mequon Nature Preserve’s mission is to transform agricultural fields into a mosaic of historical forests, prairies, and wetlands. Additionally, educational programming is provided to children and adults annually to create an appreciation and understanding of nature.

ULT focuses on air cleaning solutions for several industries and applications. In addition to providing customers with welding fume extraction technology, systems for laser and soldering fume extraction, dust collection, filtration of gases, vapors, and odors now support American companies to protect their values in the form of employees, machinery, and products.
