12/2/2005 - "Joseph A. Voves, President and Founder of Metric & Multistandard Components Corp. to retire at the end of 2005"
Mr. Joseph A. Voves will retire as President of Metric & Multistandard Components Corp. at the end of 2005. Mr. Voves founded Metric & Multistandard in 1963 with partners Milan Peske and Alois Hacaj. The company's commitment to outstanding customer service is much attributed to Mr. Voves' belief that hard work and personal attention to details will gain you customers for life. The business remains strong and is owned by the same three families today.

Mr. Voves began his working career in Europe in the hotel business. After escaping from the communist takeover of his homeland (the former nation of Czechoslovakia) at the end of WWII, he studied in France and worked in Germany and Italy -- ultimately earning a job in Ethiopia in 1955 managing the Ethiopian National Hotel Company and reporting directly to the Ministry of Finance and the Emperor Haile Selassie. It was in Ethiopia that Mr. Voves met his future business partners who, ironically, were also originally from Czechoslovakia. Mr. Voves is fluent in nine languages as a result of his many worldly travels. He has been a devout Rotarian for decades -- twice past President and New York District Governor. Still very active at age 84, Mr. Voves enjoys outdoor activities like skiing and gardening and spending time with his 11 grandchildren.
8/29/2005 - "REACH, RoHS & WEEE Compliance"
Thank you for inquiring about Metric & Multistandard’s commitment to full compliance with the European environmental initiatives. As a responsible corporate citizen of the world, MMCC is taking an aggressive lead at making sure that both our company and the manufacturing firms that we represent, meet all of the new requirements as outlined below.

In January 2003 the European Union passed two directives restricting the use of certain hazardous substance (RoHS) in electrical and electronic equipment and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). These directives were put into force in February 2004 giving manufacturers one additional year to become compliant.In the EU the date of compliance is set for July 2006.

Some of the substances in these directives are lead, mercury, cadmium, and hexavalent chromium and two families of brominated flame retardants – polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenylethers (PBDE).None of which will be allowed in the manufacture of electrical and electronic products shipped into the European Union as of July 2006. According to the Health & Safety Executive Laboratory (HSE Lab), the official UK organization responsible for regulating all aspects of health and safety, along with the UK Dept. of Trade & Industry and other European Chemists the issues are still open and inconclusive. In Hexavalent plating, the hexavalent chrome is carcinogenic to humans but the danger does not come from the plated item itself -- rather to the health of the workers at the processing plant itself.

Metric & Multistandard is an importer and distributor of Metric Industrial supplies. We are not a manufacturer, nor do we have the ability to electroplate finished products at any of our facilities. We rely upon our international manufacturers and suppliers, virtually all of whom are ISO 9000 certified and party to the EU environmental regulations, to provide us with compliant parts.

In the fastener industry, although we try to turn our annual inventory several times in a given year, there are many parts maintained in large quantities along with numerous items with a small turnover that are already in the supply chain. Our fastener products are generic, made to internationally recognized ISO consensus standards without any bias towards specific purpose, industry or destination. Although we say with good certainty that all new products being imported from our manufacturing sources is fully compliant with the hexavalent requirements noted above, it is impossible for any importer in our industry to offer a blanket statement indicating total compliance to this evolving issue.

In the interim, if your organization needs to evaluate and qualify each individual part purchased from our inventory, it can be done at some reasonable expense. MMCC will look at each request item by item and offer separate quotes and lead times on those parts that need to be certified as meeting the EU directives.

Thank you again for your interest in our company and our products.
