Plating Alternative — Electroplating is harsh to the environment and the process is demanding on both water and energy use. Our alternative finishes provide a natural metal appearance that closely match Satin Nickel and Brushed Chrome Plating without harming the environment.
Recycling — The manufacturing floor recycles all metals and scrap acrylic used by Visa Lighting. We recycle not only our solids but also our shavings. Visa lighting recycles electronic components, ballasts, batteries and lamps. Cardboard and wood are also a part of the expansive recycling program including a process for cardboard that transforms boxes into a soft formable state for reuse in packaging.
Packaging — Visa Lighting uses recyclable packing material that minimizes the amount of packaging used without compromising the protection of shipped goods. It is also produced without chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) or hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), which have been associated with the depletion of the ozone layer.
Air Filtration System — In the machining department the venting system goes to a smoke/fume extractor and is not exhausted outside. The cleaned conditioned air stays inside the building, which saves energy.
Waste Water Discharge — Visa Lighting has consistently been named to “Significant Industrial User Honor Roll” by the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewage District and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
