SANUS is a Milestone AV Technologies brand, a leading global provider of innovative mounting and display solutions for various audiovisual technologies.
Milestone AV Technologies is committed to playing an active, responsible role in ongoing efforts to improve the environment where we live and work. To this end, we monitor and evaluate sources of waste to determine feasibility of elimination or minimization through recycling, re-engineering, or process modification.
As a global company with suppliers located throughout the world, our commitment to the environment extends beyond our corporate doors. Part of our effort includes holding our suppliers accountable and ensuring that the products we make, and the suppliers we purchase from, are evaluated against our environmental criteria. We make it a priority to comply with international environmental regulations related to the design, manufacture and packaging of our products. In addition, as part of our ongoing customer service initiatives, we are committed to fulfilling our customers' compliance requests.
An important part of our purpose as a company is providing unmatched attention to our customers' known and anticipated needs through product innovation. Integral to innovation is building highly durable products that offer our customers many years of use and add to their quality of life. Focusing on durability not only offers our customers benefits but also results in less product disposal. Product innovation also means that we actively look for ways to use recycled materials while eliminating the use of hazardous substances. In addition, engineering our products with the minimum number of parts, and with an eye on end-of-life recycling, is a key part of our product development process.
