Technomad Switches to Recycled Plastic for Loudspeakers

Technomad Associates LLC this week 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.

Technomad Associates LLC, which makes weatherproof loudspeakers and audio systems, this week 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.

"We want to take advantage of the opportunity presented by our manufacturing process to reduce waste," said Rodger von Kries, vice president of Technomad, in a statement. "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."

According to the company, the switch to recycled plastic reduces waste without altering the manufacturing process or lessening the rugged durability 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's loudspeaker systems come with integrated, IP56-rated weatherproofing for outdoor and indoor systems that does not compromise acoustic performance, according to the company. 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.
