SurgeX first to go Green

PIPERSVILLE, PA--SurgeX announced that their product line is now RoHS compliant and is the first in this product category to do so.

"This effort on behalf of SurgeX ownership, engineering and material procurement has been a long process, but we are extremely proud of this important milestone for our company" said Michael McCook, SurgeX senior principal.

RoHS stands for 'Restriction of Hazardous Substances' in electrical and electronic equipment. The RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC was adopted in February 2003 by the European Union and took effect on 1 July 2006. This directive restricts the use of lead, cadmium, mercury, polybrominated biphenyls, polybrominated diphenyl ethers, and hexavalent chromium.

Andy Benton, SurgeX director of engineering adds, "At SurgeX, we're not satisfied with just being a technology leader, we strive to be a leader in every way. Being the first US power conditioner manufacturer to embrace RoHS is just one more in a long line of firsts for us. But then on the personal level, it makes me happy to think that our products no longer contain harmful materials such as lead and will not pose a threat to future generations."

"With all the new Green initiatives our industry must now adopt in terms of RoHS and LEED, I would expect nothing less from SurgeX to be the first manufacturer to come in line with these necessary requirements. We are happy SurgeX has understood what needs to be done to continue to be the market leader in this segment" says manufacturer rep John Cardone of New York based Cardone, Solomon and Associates.
