Here at Rieker, Inc. we are committed to preserving our environment and building a more sustainable future for our planet by reducing our manufacturing footprint in several key ways. One of the ways we are dedicated to reducing our footprint is by constantly reducing the amount of hazardous chemicals involved in our manufacturing process. This is evident on many fronts: using lead-free solder and no-clean flux for our soldering process, welding plastics with environmentally friendly ultrasonic equipment and lasers, and processing raw materials with a complex system of clean water and ultrasonic cleaning.
These processes allow us to protect our employees as well as the environment by eliminating the need to store and handle hazardous and noxious chemicals. In addition to having reduced our chemical footprint in manufacturing, we have switched to a paperless documentation system. Any paper that is used is also recycled company wide. At Rieker, we are committed to generating less waste and disposal of hazardous chemicals which would otherwise be destined for our landfills. It is our mission to look after the wellbeing of our employees and our planet.
