It is the heart of our business. Sustain our human assets (associates, customers, vendors), our products, manufacturing and how we deliver and reclaim our products at end of life.
We are the ONLY Company with a buyback program. Use our products for 5-years and we will give you a credit as a percent of sale price to take the product back for another advanced product offering at the same or higher cost.
Our mission is to help people first and growth is a byproduct of our honest efforts. A major portion of our net profits are funneled to social, cultural and environmental causes. The company is based on the philosophy that if we are useful to society, we will be recognized as a valuable partner.
We are minimalists in raw material consumption, making sure that the product design starts from the end delivery to the customer and work backwards to the least cost for design-manufacturing to minimize waste and maximize recyclable content. Our buyback program makes sure that our products do not make it to the waste heap and is recycled.
We recognize that in the global economy we have to move products against great distances and make sure that the design of the product and the final assembly closest to the customer ensures that the waste is minimized.
A major portion of our profits are allocated to environmental causes (oceans and earth). Our belief is that we are guests of the planet and must leave it like we found it. Our associates are involved in environmental causes and actively participate in conservation and educational efforts.
Our engineers and designers are always challenged to consider alternate materials that are environmentally conservative and the manufacturing, assembly and fulfilment process is least taxing to the environment.
