Environmentalism Comes Naturally to us.
American Seating has been committed to environmental stewardship for years, and has taken a proactive approach to minimizing our environmental impact. We arm all of our employees with the knowledge and tools to increase reuse, reduction and recycling. We also constantly examine new ways to implement the latest methodologies that will help us care for our planet from our own front yard. One of our five company principles is “To be responsible stewards of the enviroment by utilizing materials and manufacturing processes that are sustainable and lessen our impact on the planet.” Our products exceed the norm for durability, and are often refurbished rather than replaced.
We started reducing our use of environmentally “unfriendly” materials and processes years ago. We completely eliminated the use of solvent-based paints and eliminated UF in all possible processes and adhesives, opting for beautiful solvent-free powder paint coatings. We also minimize our use of solvent-based adhesives wherever possible, substituting safer polymer glues like Hot Melt. We reclaim and recycle scrap metal, stainless steel and used oils. We also continue to reduce our overall water consumption and waste.
Our latest endeavor is a sustainability product profile. We have compiled all the data on each product to measure its recycled content and recyclability, as well as the contribution it makes towards LEED point acquisition. For more detailed infomration on this or any product or process on these pages please contact an American Seating Sales Representative in your area.
American Seating has been in business for generations, so we know how important it is for today’s employees to be mindful of our environment and preserve the Earth for future generations.
