Testrite Installing Energy-Saving LED Lighting Company-Wide

posted by Admin User at 2017-10-20 11:32:00

In the coming months, Testrite will be installing energy-saving LED lighting throughout the company.  This initiative will significantly reduce our 'carbon-footprint', adding to our already effective Green Policy.

Material

  • 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.

Local Supply

  • As a U.S. manufacturer, Testrite utilizes local suppliers reducing transportation impact.
  • The carbon footprint of a Toyota Prius built in Asia is greater than a Chevrolet Surburban built in the U.S.

Design

  • Many of our designs are telescopic, facilitating less packaging and transportation.

Process

  • 88% of our scrap metals are recycled.
  • 60% of our corrugated waste is converted into usable packaging.
  • We routinely recycle returned, damaged or obsolete products and materials.

Quality

  • 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.

Environmentally Responsible Operation
