At Safco, we understand that quality extends beyond a simple expectation of function. It’s the special treatment our customers deserve, a product that exceeds expectations of design and value and the advancement of industry standards through great product and service examples. From concept to delivery, we integrate high levels of quality as our standard and work hard to impress our customers everyday. Safco is committed to the highest level of satisfaction in the manufacture, sale and support of our products. We support a complete satisfaction initiative by striving for continuous improvements in all areas of product and service. Safco regards all of its quality programs as an integral part of our company’s improvement process. Safco’s quality program works to provide products that meet or exceed the quality standards our customers expect.
Safco not only holds itself to strict environmental standards, we require suppliers to regard the standards as a total supply chain initiative. Suppliers play an important role in Safco’s long-standing commitment to perform operations in a manner consistent with sound health, safety and environmental management practices. Because of this, suppliers are not only expected to comply with applicable health, safety and environmental laws and regulations, they are expected to seek continuous improvement within these realms.
As an industry leader, Safco aims to set high environmental standards offering a large collection of GREENGUARD Certified products. The GREENGUARD Certification Program is internationally recognised for evaluating product emissions and certifying building materials, furnishings, finishes and cleaning products and processes that meet stringent product emissions criteria set by UL Environment. This stringent criteria has enabled GREENGUARD Certified products to be recognised as qualifying for Leader in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) points, allowing them to contribute toward LEED certification. Safco’s long-standing dedication to ensure products meet the rigorous chemical emissions standards of GREENGUARD Certification signifies our stewardship to every environment. Safco continues to become an environmentally conscious company with the intention to offer more products that our customers can feel good about and responsible practices that encourage sustainability, helping us obtain a proud standing in our community and the planet.
Finally, Safco uses FSC and Smartwood Certified catalogues, brochures and other publications whenever possible as part of the Rainforest Alliance Certification. In addition, these publications have been printed from soy ink. Soy ink, derived from soybeans, is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional petroleum-based ink.
Safco advocates continuous improvement in the realms of efficient recycling and/or disposal of waste materials and improving treatment and control of waste emissions affecting air, water and soil. Safco also encourages the practice of waste reduction operations such as machine efficiency, raw material utilisation, conservation of soil, air, water quality, biodiversity, wildlife and aquatic habitats, the practice of sustainable forest management policies where applicable, end-of-life treatment recommendations, raw material and recycled content regulation and legal compliance with environmental legislation.
