The news today is filled with stories of companies across all industries throughout the United States launching eco-friendly “green” initiatives. We, here at National Field Services and our sister company, National Switchgear, aren’t just on that bandwagon—we’ve been a driving force and industry leader in repurposed electrical equipment remanufacturing, rebuilding and reconditioning services since 1986.
The term “going green” almost always conjures up images of companywide recycling programs and such. While recycling definitely plays a role of varying degrees in most green initiatives, our efforts reach far beyond a simple recycling program. In fact, with industrial and commercial electrical apparatus that are designed for repair and maintenance—such as disconnects, fuses, relays, circuit breakers, panels, etc.—recycling is not an option because there simply isn’t enough recyclable material available to make the effort cost-effective.
