ISO 14001 certification requires Airtex Inc. to monitor and control the environmental effects of its activities, products, and services. ISO 14001 also assesses energy usage, waste creation disposal, and general environmental awareness. Our goal is to reduce waste and minimize the use of hazardous materials while preserving our natural resources, as well as continue to manufacture top-quality products. All materials entering our plants are evaluated as to their potential environmental effects. ISO 14001 also considers the final disposition of manufactured products when their useful life has ended.
