Timbercon’s Armadillo Loopback Achieves ROHS Compliance
LAKE OSWEGO, OR – July 19, 2005 – Timbercon, Inc. announces it has achieved compliance with all RoHS directives for the Armadillo loopback product line. This announcement comes as part of a larger corporate initiative to have every Timbercon product RoHS compliant before July 1, 2006.
To achieve RoHS compliance, Timbercon worked with vendors and internal manufacturing divisions to verify component, process, and packaging level compliance, ensuring that each attribute contains less than the allotted amount of hazardous substances set forth in the RoHS directive by the European Union. “Ensuring the Armadillo loopback is compliant with all the RoHS directives well before the deadline is a key factor for the continued success of the product line,” said Sean Gitt, Marketing Director for Timbercon.
