The company announces the completion of RoHS compliance in 100 percent of its power cord and cable assembly products manufactured in its main D.G. China facility. The RoHS Directive restricts the presence of hazardous materials, including lead, mercury, cadmium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and polybrominated diphenylethers (PBDE) and was adopted into European Law in February 2003.
