Essex places a high value on sustainability and environmental conservation. Our compliance to multiple environmental directives and regulations should be a testimony to our commitment. From substance control to our reel return program, re-usable plastic pallets or magnet wire recycling, Essex employees and factories work each day to maintain a sustainable environment.
Being conscious of our environmental impact is important at Essex. Our North American metal processing and Torreon facilities have already implemented a fully ISO 14001-2015 certified environmental management system. This allows for improved control and management of emissions, wastes, safe handling of hazardous or potentially polluting materials, energy efficiency improvements and the conservation of natural resources including water, land and precious minerals. The Certifications page in the Resources section provides more details of our certification to RoHS, WEEE, REACH, GADSL, JIG-101, CEPA,CSCL, and more.Learn More
Package and Reel Recycling
Essex takes special care to ensure the seamless delivery of magnet wire to our customer’s manufacturing floors. As a sustainability minded business, the packaging used to deliver our products is made from 30% recycled materials. We also strive to fine-tune the resource cycle through the removal of empty pallets, reels and spools. These packages and their pallets remain the property of Essex and are fully recyclable via the Essex Reel Return Program. With this program, we encourage buyers or their agents to contact us for pickup once they have 3 full pallets of reels, spools, or drums to return. Materials are picked-up by the designated packaging return agent and reused.
