By doing the following:

Conserving Natural Resources

Because fewer raw materials are used, remanufacturing / refurbishing conserves energy and natural resources. Office furniture remanufacturing / refurbishing extends the life of resources already in circulation such as wood, steel, aluminum, plastics and fiber, re-using them to the fullest extent possible.  Industry experts estimate that for each pound of natural resources used in remanufacturing / refurbishing, five to nine pounds of original materials are conserved.

Conserving Energy

Remanufacturing / refurbishing office furniture conserves labor and manufacturing energy. The amount of labor and energy required to alter an existing product during remanufacturing / refurbishing is 85% to 95% less than that required to manufacture a new product for our clients in Kitchener / Waterloo, Calgary, Toronto and all of North America. And considering much of the product has already been manufactured, remanufacturing / refurbishing saves an enormous amount of energy required for production, especially when metals are kept from the re-smelting process.

Reducing Solid Waste

By remanufacturing / refurbishing office furniture, the products as well as the natural resources are diverted from the solid waste stream.  For example: fabrics in the panel systems tend to wear out and the colors become outdated. Through remanufacturing / refurbishing the fabrics can be replaced and the office furniture and chairs returned to the Canadian and North American Markets at a reduced cost!

Reducing Air Pollution

Remanufacturing / refurbishing reduces the pollution caused by the manufacturing process. Carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (Co2), sulfer oxides (S0x), nitrous oxide (NOx), volatile organic compounds, are all reduced by remanufactured / refurbished office furniture which in turns helps all of our clients across Canada and North America breath easier!
