Technomad Switches To Recycled Plastic For Loudspeaker Manufacturing Process

technomad-noho-single.jpgBOSTON, July 16, 2008 – Technomad Associates, LLC, a leader in weatherproof loudspeakers and audio systems since 1995, today announced it has introduced recycled plastic into its loudspeaker manufacturing process as part of the company’s developing green initiative in an effort to reduce waste. The company will continue to manufacture all loudspeaker products at its Massachusetts facility, where each loudspeaker is bench-built and tested by small teams of craftsmen.

“We want to take advantage of the opportunity presented by our manufacturing process to reduce waste,? said Rodger von Kries, vice president of Technomad. “This also benefits our customers by allowing us to minimize our manufacturing costs compared to using new plastic, a petroleum product that is subject to cost increases along with rising oil prices.?

The switch to recycled plastic reduces waste without altering the manufacturing process or lessening the rugged durability that is a hallmark of Technomad loudspeakers. The recycled plastic is processed, dyed black for color conformity, and used in the place of the new plastic formerly used for Technomad’s black loudspeaker cabinets.

Technomad is the recognized leader in weatherproof loudspeaker systems, featuring integrated, IP56-rated weatherproofing for outdoor and indoor systems that does not compromise acoustic performance. Technomad loudspeakers are available separately or as part of the company range of Turnkey PA systems featuring a signal processing rack with a powered amplifier, six-channel mixer, a dynamic microphone, cables, and additional rack space for external source and power equipment.

The company recently introduced two new non-loudspeaker products to its inventory: Schedulon a new automatic mp3 player and recording system for themed entertainment, high-quality music playback, simulated environments, and commercial security applications; and PowerChiton, a series of compact, durable and weatherproof modules that unite a high-performance, passively-cooled amplifier with an IP56-rated, low-profile enclosure.
