Our commitment to the environment:
Aluminum, steel and corrugated are our major material components.
25% of our Aluminum currently comes from recycled billet, and will increase as more becomes available.
Steel recycled content currently averages 58%.
Corrugated medium and liner board (boxes) currently average 70% recycled content.
As a U.S. manufacturer, Testrite utilizes local suppliers reducing transportation impact. Note that the carbon footprint of a Toyota Prius built in Asia is greater than a Chevrolet Surburban.
Many of our designs are telescopic, facilitating less packaging and transportation.
88% of our scrap metals are recycled. 60% of our corrugated waste is converted into usable packaging. We routinely recycle our brand aluminum products when returned to us by customers.
Testrite products have always been known for extraordinary reliability and therefore have longer lives than our competitors' products. If our products last longer, the carbon footprint is less. Product life impacts the environment more than any other factor.

Our policy is to run our business with our earth in our hearts.
