In every way, Gerber exemplifies the new industry standard of bringing “green” into homes. This begins with the more ecological manufacturing processes used to create our performance-driven plumbing products and continues with the efficiencies and streamlined function these products deliver after they have been installed in bathrooms and kitchens.
Some of the important conservation steps that Gerber takes with our manufacturing processes include:
Instead of coal, we use only natural gas for our fuel needs
All water used within our testing labs and inspection areas is recycled and a drainage system has been created to treat waste water before it is discharged
We use energy-saving equipment and natural light, which reduce the use of electricity
Our product molds are not sent to landfills; instead they are recycled to become a cement component
We are a manufacturing partner of WaterSense-a partnership program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
Our commitment to quality and environmental excellence is further reflected in our text labs and manufacturing initiatives, which include:
Quality Control Circle (QCC)
Total Quality Management (TQM)
Statistical Process Control (SPC)
The ISO 9001 Quality Management System
Through ongoing research and our steadfast green commitment, Gerber will continue to offer advanced plumbing solutions you can truly take pride in using. This more thoughtful, more responsible approach leads to exceptional products that not only meet your high standards for quality and performance – but also the higher standards of environmental leadership our future generations are counting on.
