Online PR News – 21-September-2009 – – FNA Group announces all products offered are RoHS Compliant
Elk Grove Village, IL, September 14, 2009 —The FNA Group, the leading manufacturer of electric pressure washers and high pressure hoses for distribution in North America, announced today that it’s entire range of pressure washers are RoHS-compliant. In addition to the pressure washers, all FNA Group produced high-pressure hoses will continue to meet the directive.

"As the industry leader, FNA took a proactive approach to meet this initiative ahead of any North American requirement and encourage others to follow our lead. Our customers will be pleased to know that the products they purchase from us have passed and comply with the RoHS Directive," says Gus Alexander, President and CEO. "At the FNA Group, we fervently support this initiative and believe the additional costs incurred to comply are well worth the investment to protect future generations by minimizing hazardous substances making their way to our nation’s landfills. More than four years ago, we adapted our manufacturing processes and used materials that comply with RoHS to meet the requirements for our European partners. RoHS compliance is important, but it was also imperative that we maintained the same form, fit and functionality that customers have been using for years. These RoHS compliant machines and high pressure hoses will provide our customers with the peace of mind of using an environmentally sound product without compromising quality or performance."

RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) calls for the “restriction on the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment”. It is a European Directive aiming to control the global use of certain hazardous substances in the production of new electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). It is a partner directive to the WEEE Directive (Waste in Electrical and Electronic Equipment) that controls the disposal and recycling of EEE.

The European Parliament and the Council of the European Union adopted this directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. RoHS has since been adopted by the state of California and is being reviewed by other U.S. states at the time of this release.

The FNA Group manufactures pressure washers, pressure washer hoses and components in the U.S., Italy, and Asia, for major retailers and OEM manufacturers around the world.
