ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

At Ace we are committed to environmental responsibility and the manufacturing of products that have a low impact on our environment. This commitment extends throughout our manufacturing process and supply chain. We stress the importance of building strategic relationships with companies and organizations that provide solutions that complement our initiative of reducing our environmental footprint.

We are continuously researching the materials that go into our products to make sure they are as eco-friendly as possible. Lower VOC paints, more-eco-friendly printing methods, higher recycled content raw materials and more energy efficient LED lighting are just a few of the areas we routinely research and implement whenever feasible.
We also realize that in order to meet the expectations of our customers, the green innovations we adopt cannot result in an unreasonable increase in price or a drop in product quality as quality products last and stay out of the waste cycle longer. The exciting news is that higher quality and more affordable green materials and finishes are being introduced every year. We are 100% committed to incorporating these eco-friendly materials and processes into our offering whenever possible.
A few of the positive changes we’ve implemented and key eco-friendly attributes of our products include:
  • Aggressive company wide recycling program sorting scrap metal, plastics, wood, painted and unpainted materials to the appropriate recycling stations.
  • Use of water based lead-free low VOC paint.
  • Engineering our signs to use led illumination for lower energy consumption.
  • Eco-friendly, UV-cured direct-printing processes.
  • Use of recycled plastic and cardboard packaging material. 
  • Cardboard is recycled through a Container and Recycling Service
  • Aluminum is sent to a facility to be melted down and recycled.
  • Other metals such as steel, iron, galvanized, old signs, and parts not used anymore are sent to a recycling center
  • Plexiglass is sent out to be chipped down into pellets and recycled.  
  • Raw material scraps are recycled by various companies to ensure ‘green disposal’.
  • Paint products are recycled through a HHW program.
  • Wood is removed by recycling and container services, and ultimately, it is turned into mulch
  • Lamps such as fluorescent lamps and neon which may have mercury are disposed of through an environmental company and the cardboard boxes that the lamps are shipped in eventually get recycled as well.
  • Ballasts are disposed separately because they have copper and tar. Ballasts are taken to the scrap yard for melting and proper disposal.
  • Trash is sent to a recycling center where they sift through all waste to continue the breakdown of recycling of product.
  • Strict Control and Minimization of Air Emissions with the use of specialized HVLP spray paint equipment, state-of-the-art filtered exhaust systems and documented procedures for all waste storage and disposal, 
  • Materials collected for recycling include aluminum cans and manufacturing scrap, PET, PETE and HDPE plastics, paper products, cardboard and acrylic.
