In an effort to stay ahead of the RoHS curve TV One has made sure all the CORIO2 products are produced to be environmentally- friendly.
ERLANGER, KY, July 27, 2006 ¡V All CORIO2 products manufactured by TV One comply fully to the new RoHS directive, ensuring that the premium technology offered by TV One is now housed in the best environment.
The new RoHS (Restriction of the use of Certain Hazardous Substances) directive was implemented by the European Union on July 1, 2006 and will start being implemented in select U.S. states in 2007. This limits the use of specific materials, such as lead and cadmium, in the manufacturing of electronic and electrical equipment. TV One¡¦s manufacturing facility has received a total upgrade in order to accommodate these new restrictions.
¡§TV One is committed to having the highest quality of products without causing damage to the environment,¡¨ says David Barnes, President of TV One. ¡§We have withdrawn some products that could not be upgraded to meet RoHS requirements but are introducing several new and improved lines including the OneTask C2 and the new C2 -1000 lines.¡¨
It has taken two years of hard work for TV One to complete the transition to RoHS compliancy. It was a bit of challenge since it wasn¡¦t just the production facilities that needed upgraded but also locating premium -quality components from suppliers who are fully compliant with the new directive.
¡§It has been a long journey for us at TV One, but we fully support the directive and are very pleased to announce the CORIO2 products meet the highest international environmental standards,¡¨ said Barnes.
