Sustainability in Contract Electronics Manufacturing

At OCM Manufacturing, we are concerned about the natural environment and we take steps-as individuals and as an organization-to respect our planet. We believe that sustainability is possible to achieve in contract electronics manufacturing, and we strive toward that end.

Our proactive efforts toward environmental sustainability include the following:

paperless-lgReduce – our company is nearly 100% paperless, an initiative that our leadership continues to drive forward. This PROFIT Magazine article provides more details about our paperless efforts and ROI. We also participate in the ENERNOC demand response hydro-electricity program.

recycling-zone_160pxsqRecycle – we recycle a broad range of materials, including packaging materials. This employee-led initiative is funded by OCM.

Global action – export-manufacturers have a responsibility to meet environmental regulations around the globe. We were the first contract electronics manufacturer in Canada to offer lead-free manufacturing. Our manufacturing processes in North America and China are also compatible with Europe’s RoHS requirements.
