BOSTON, MA--Technomad Associates has introduced recycled plastic into its loudspeaker manufacturing process as part of the company's developing green initiative in an effort to reduce waste. The company will continue to manufacture all loudspeaker products at its Massachusetts facility, where each loudspeaker is bench-built and tested by small teams of craftsmen.

"We want to take advantage of the opportunity presented by our manufacturing process to reduce waste," said Rodger von Kries, vice president of Technomad. "This also benefits our customers by allowing us to minimize our manufacturing costs compared to using new plastic, a petroleum product that is subject to cost increases along with rising oil prices."

The switch to recycled plastic reduces waste without altering the manufacturing process or lessening the rugged durability that is a hallmark of Technomad loudspeakers. The recycled plastic is processed, dyed black for color conformity, and used in the place of the new plastic formerly used for Technomad's black loudspeaker cabinets.
