Timbercon Completes RoHS Compliance

LAKE OSWEGO, OR. – June 29, 2006 – Timbercon, Inc., a fiber optic products and services company providing a vast array of connectivity solutions has completed RoHS (Reduction of Hazardous Substances) compliance in accordance with the directive deadline of July 1, 2006, set forth by the European Union.

The RoHS Directive mandates a reduction in the amount of hazardous materials used in electrical and electronic products, and their component parts. To comply with the RoHS directive, a product must contain less than the stated allowable levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE).

While only a few of the substance outlined by the RoHS directive are applicable to Timbercon via components or finished products, the company embraced the opportunity to support the issue by achieving compliance nonetheless. “Environmental stewardship is an important issue for organizations large and small,” commented Eric Meslow, President of Timbercon. “We made a deliberate decision to  achieve RoHS compliance to support the needs of our customers, but also to ensure we that are utilizing environmentally friendly manufacturing processes and doing our part to promote a clean environment.”
