SurfaceTech by FCi Companies is committed to working with sustainability in mind and reducing waste, improving air quality, recycling, and replanting. Forest Stewardship Certified and manufactured with the environment in mind, SurfaceTech works to be conscientious of decisions and how they affect the environment. We continue to refine our manufacturing processes and have adopted a LEAF initiative to challenge ourselves to do our part in protecting the environment.
Meeting our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Leveraging Environmental Advantages for our Future
The LEAF Initiative was adopted by Facility Concepts and its sub-brands, including SurfaceTech, to challenge ourselves and to help bring awareness to sustaining our environment. By delivering on best practices through its manufacturing operations and by strengthening the community between individuals and consumers, we believe we can lead by example.
We consider how all products and materials (wood, metal, foam, etc.) impact energy efficiency, waste, and water conservation, and prioritize how we manufacture.
Limiting Toxic Chemicals
We limit the amount of toxic chemicals used in our manufacturing and 98% of the wood used in our products is from certified forests and backed by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council).
Reduce & Reuse Paint
We reduce paint by recovering as much powder coat paint as possible. This is achieved with reprocessing equipment used in the paint cell.
We only use recyclable or bio-degradable materials (paper, cardboard, plastic, etc.) for our packaging materials.
All of the excess steel goes to local steel shops for recycled use.
Eliminating Wood Waste
All of our excess wood material is ground up into sawdust and used locally for animal bedding at farms.
