Offering products that are environmentally-friendly is the right thing to do. At the same time, we recognize that the manufacturing of those products needs to be green, too. To that end, we have taken steps to ensure that its manufacturing processes have as little impact on the environment as possible.
First among such measures, we use a water-based metal cleaning method that has eliminated solvent degreasers. Additionally, in 1999, our parent company became the first domestic faucet manufacturer to be ISO 14001 compliant, which is the international conformance standard for environmental management.
Beyond this, we are always looking to develop new technologies - and new ways of implementing those technologies - that will enable us to reduce our environmental footprint.
