Companies around the globe have entered the race to make environmentally friendly products. It seems like every magazine ad, every television ad is touting their newfound commitment to building and selling products that are environmentally friendly. Everyone that is...but Maintenance Engineering.
Since 1974, we have offered 100% of our products in long-life designs that last up to 20 times (Multi-Watt®) longer than standard lamps. That means that we make only one lamp while the competition manufactures 20. If everyone switched to our lamps, they could close 95% of all tungsten mines, 95% of all glass sand mines, 95% of the mines that produce metals for the bases and close 95% of incandescent manufacturing plants!
Since 1974, we have offered energy saving products whenever technically possible. We introduced the Multi-Watt® long life incandescent that not only lasted 20 times longer, but consumed 12% less energy. We have offered self ballasted mercury vapor lamps for 33 years, which cut energy consumption by over 50%. We have offered energy saving fluorescent designs since they were first designed. Best of all, we offer fluorescents that produce more light for the energy consumed when compared to any of our standard lamp competitors. We've "been there" since 1974 and "we've done that" by offering EARTH-SAFE® products since our beginning.
M.E. will continue to lead the way with new and better and evermore environmentally friendly products. Our Premira® fluorescent has always been a leader in low mercury design and we intend to take it lower. Our Premira® Electronic ballasts contain no PCB's, and use up to 44% less energy. Our Lumi-Twist™ spiral lamps save up to 83% in energy consumption, are guaranteed in commercial/industrial use, and last up to 24 times longer than the incandescents they replace.
BEEN THERE, DONE THAT and we're going to STAY THERE AND CONTINUE TO DO THAT. M.E. will continue to be a leader in EARTH-SAFE®. We set the standard 40 years ago and we're committed to continue doing our part in converting the world to move to environmentally friendly products.
