Environmentalism Comes Naturally to us.
Nearly a hundred years ago – we made a promise – that we would act as stewards of the
environment. Since then, we’ve been dedicated to serving our customers in a way that never
becomes a disservice to our planet.
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 information 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.
