“There is hardly anything in the world that someone cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who only orient themselves on price become the just prey of these machinations.
It is unwise to pay too much, but it is also unwise to pay too little.
If you pay too much, you lose some money, that is all. If, on the other hand, you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the item you have bought cannot fulfil the task assigned to it. The law of the economy forbids receiving a lot of value for little money.
If you accept the lowest offer, you have to add something for the risk you take. If you do, then you have enough money to pay more for something better.” John Ruskin, English Social Reformer, (1819 – 1900)
REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) and RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) determine the current discussions in the market.
We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that none of the listed substances get into our type plates, foil plates or front panels. The careful use of natural resources and the correct disposal of the materials used is therefore a matter of course for us.
About the “Environment and Occupational Safety” section of the WSM Wirtschaftsverband Stahl- und Metallverarbeitung e.V., which we also belong to as a company of the Fachverband Metallwaren- und verwandte Industrien e.V. (Metal Goods and Related Industries Association). (FMI), we are regularly informed about proposed substances for the candidate list, public consultation procedures, updates of the candidate list, which now comprises 191 substances (last updated in June 2018), as well as about the relevance of the SVHC.
We further confirm that none of the substances of very high concern (SVHCs; Art. 59 of the REACH Regulation) defined by ECHA are contained in our products.
We also use state-of-the-art air filter technology and regeneration systems. Through the use of a state-of-the-art water treatment plant, our process water is filtered and tested several times before being returned to the environment. The use of our regeneration plant enables us to produce or recycle the required materials without polluting the environment through acquisitions.
