A large number of electronic OEMs are successfully managing dual supply chains. However, for an assembly house it does require rigorous attention to detail, and at Tru-Tronics Intl. we do that well. That includes building RoHS compliant and non-RoHS compliant runs at different locations within our facility, as well as using color coding (solder masks, silkscreen, etc.) and industry-standard markings to clearly delineate RoHS compliant materials from non-RoHS compliant materials.
Environmental laws are expected to continue to expand in scope over the next several years and Tru-Tronics Intl. supports this trend. Industry insiders report that by 2010 or shortly thereafter, the control, monitoring and telecommunications exemptions in RoHS will likely be severely curtailed and new environmental bench marks including California’s own RoHS-type legislation will be in effect.
Until then you can rely on Tru-Tronics Intl. to perform your non-RoHS build as environmentally responsible as possible.
