(Delanco, NJ – January 2012) Stylex is proud to announce that The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s Environmental Stewardship Initiative has recognized their brand for taking dedicated measures to improve the environment. This honor celebrates Stylex’s commitment to being green and to ensuring a sustainable future! This prestigious certificate identified Stylex for the proactive measures that they take towards Green Building Implementation, Hazardous Materials Reduction, Materials Conservation, and Innovative Programming.
According to Stylex President, John Golden, “Stylex is a family owned and managed company committed to producing products with a deep respect for the environment. We have been in business for more than half a century and understand the importance of creating products that lead the way in terms of design and production methods. We seek design partners and clients that share this perspective. We are proud that the State of NJ recognizes our efforts and plan to keep the pressure on as we continue to make lasting seating solutions into this next century.”
Stylex’s green initiative does not end in Delanco, NJ. Stylex was recently recognized for their new LEED certified Showroom in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart, which reflects the company’s goal of presenting design in a beautiful, simple, and sustainable way. The showroom, made from mostly recycled materials, is a platform for Stylex’s many innovative green products, and reflects their design practice, which makes sustainability a high priority.
Recent stand-out introductions like the popular SAVA® task and executive chair are up to 98% recyclable. Crafted with polished cast aluminum, SAVA’s seat and back are field-replaceable, and the product can be disassembled for recycling. And like all Stylex products, SAVA meets Greenguard Indoor Air Quality and Children and School certification.
Plans are in the works for the next round of Stylex seating solutions crafted with a deep respect for the environment. They will officially launch this spring at Neocon 2012 in Chicago.
Founded in 1956 by the Golden family, Stylex focuses its efforts on the modern office environment with careful consideration given to balancing aesthetics, value, ergonomics, and green technology. All Stylex products meet Greenguard Children and Schools and Indoor Air Quality certification, use 100% CFC-free foam and low or no VOC adhesives.
