Environmental Policy Promotes High Voltage Diode Availability

It’s time to renew our annual Safety Training certifications. Every employee is required to read and understand safety procedures related to the performance of his or her job.

Depending on your job description there may be a few procedures to learn, or there may be many. I just completed mine, so I’m good to go, and happy to have completed the training.  

Because of the business VMI is in - manufacturing high voltage diodes and assemblies - safety issues can be closely linked to environmental issues.

VMI uses many different materials in many different processes.

In a recent meeting VMI’s policy on manufacturing environmental issues came up.  It wasn't the primary focus of the meeting, but it was clearly a priority.  

To summarize, VMI works very hard to stay within local city, county, and state guidelines. VMI has long demonstrated a strong commitment to environmental concerns by its proactive attitude, providing dedicated resources, and following up with actions and procedures. VMI goes the extra mile by doing the right thing, by exceeding the level of expected compliance. For instance, VMI’s goal is not to keep emissions at the maximum allowable level, VMI’s goal is to eliminate them.

Why? Because we can, because it’s sustainable, and because, in the long run, it’s the right thing to do.  

VMI has been around for more than 35 years.  Sustainability in practices, procedures, and manufacturing promotes continued longevity.  The long-term gains far exceed  short-term gains.  We're in it for the long haul.      

I love a company that walks the talk!
