Victor Stanley is an American manufacturer of world class, high quality site furnishings since 1962. Our collections include litter receptacles, benches, tables, chairs, ash urns, planters, tree guards, bike racks & bollards. Through carefully integrated design and innovative use of materials and technology, we have committed ourselves to manufacturing durable, attractive, strong, comfortable and environmentally sustainable site furniture.

From design to production, Victor Stanley continually strives to reduce the energy and resource demands of our manufacturing process. We utilize thousands of tons of recycled material each year to help conserve our planet’s natural resources. Our commitment to energy efficiency has resulted in a huge long-term investment in technology and equipment, reducing our net impact on energy resources.

RECYCLED STEEL
Approximately 98% of the raw material used in steel bar production is either post-consumer or post-industrial recycled scrap steel.

Approximately 80% of this material is composed of post-consumer recycled content (collected and recycled after consumer use and after inclusion in consumer products: i.e. scrap metal from cars, etc.). The primary raw material for all such products is scrap steel.

Approximately 20% of this material is composed of post-industrial/pre-consumer recycled content (collected and recycled after industrial processes: i.e. cut-offs, machining waste, rejects, etc.). The primary raw material for all such products is scrap steel.

The majority of our steel bar raw materials are from mills within 300 miles of our Maryland manufacturing facilities. 100% of our steel bar material is from domestic (USA) electric furnace mills.

TUBULAR STEEL
63.6% (by cost) of the raw material used to manufacture this material is either post-consumer or post-industrial recycled scrap steel.

An average of 62.5% of this material is composed of post-consumer recycled content (collected and recycled after consumer use or after inclusion in a consumer product: i.e. scrap steel from cars). The primary raw material for all such products is scrap steel.

An average of 37.5% of this material is composed of post-industrial/pre-consumer recycled content (collected and recycled after industrial processes: i.e. cut-offs, waste from machining, rejects, etc.). The primary raw material for all such products is scrap steel.

RECYCLED PLASTIC SLATS
More than 90% of the TOTAL raw material used in recycled plastic production is either post-industrial or post-consumer recycled plastic.

The distribution varies from batch to batch depending on availability of recycled resin. Further, distribution can be altered to match project requirements based on available inventory of recycled resin and production schedules.

An average of 40% of this material is composed of post-consumer recycled content (collected and recycled after consumer use and after inclusion in consumer products). The primary raw material for all such products is HDPE recycled resin.

An average of 60% of this material is composed of post-industrial/pre-consumer recycled content (collected and recycled after industrial processes: including cut-offs, machining waste, rejects, etc.). The primary raw material for all such products is HDPE recycled resin.

Approximately 60% of raw materials used to manufacture this material were extracted/harvested/recovered in Iowa. Victor Stanley, Inc. extrudes its own recycled plastic.

LIDS & LINERS

Our high-strength plastic lids are made from 75% recycled content by weight. Our standard full and Half-Moon black plastic liners are made primarily of recycled plastic resin.

POWDER COATING

Our powder coating is done in-house through the use of four complete powder coating systems. Each system uses extremely high efficiency catalytic gas infrared ovens, which use far less energy than conventional hot air ovens. They produce no harmful products of combustion, with water vapor as their only emission. The entire process utilizes no toxic solvents and represents our ongoing commitment to operating a modern, effective manufacturing process in a responsible and environmentally sound manner.

LONG LIFE, LOW MAINTENANCE

Our products are designed to survive and thrive in urban environments. All of our steel products are coated with a polyester powder coating, which provides a low maintenance, high-durability protective layer. This means less labor, energy and material will be spent on replacements in the long run.

PACKAGING AND OTHER COMPONENTS

Wherever possible, we request that suppliers provide high recycled content products, including packaging components where feasible.

PROCESS HEAT

Excess heat from our powder-coat ovens is circulated throughout our factories during cold weather, significantly reducing our energy requirements for heating.

SKYLIGHTS

We have installed skylights in both manufacturing facilities, utilizing natural light to augment and improve the factory working environment.

WELDING ROBOTS

Our fourteen state-of-the-art robots are programmed with welding routines that offer clean, consistent welds every time, allowing us to manufacture our high quality products efficiently and quickly.

ELECTRIC VEHICLES

We have eight rechargeable electric vehicles and two electric lifts for use around our facilities.

EMPLOYEE RECYCLING PROGRAM

Our facilities house four recycling stations and personal bins to encourage employee recycling.

PAPERLESS TECHNOLOGY

Digitizing documents and processes has resulted in a 75% decrease in our overall paper use. We also use and encourage the use of digital faxes to save paper.

ENERGY EFFICIENT COMPUTER SYSTEMS

LCD monitors and energy efficient desktops as well as laptops are a company standard.
