[Press Release] – Portland, OR – Chris King Precision Components is proud to announce the completion of their B Corp™ Certification.
Since Chris founded the company in 1976 we have operated with two goals in mind; manufacture high quality bike parts in an environmentally responsible manner, and have those parts outperform and outlast the competition, staying on bikes and out of the landfill.
We’re proud to say that we still believe in these principles and are expanding them. Chris King Precision Components is proud to have met the rigorous @bcorporation standards and be a Certified B Corporation, joining their movement to use “business as a force for good™”. As a B Corporation we believe:
- That we must be the change we seek in the world.
- That all business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered.
- That, through their products, practices, and profits, businesses should aspire to do no harm and benefit all.
- To do so requires that we act with the understanding that we are each dependent upon another and thus responsible for each other and future generations.
While we are joining over 3000 Certified B Corporations, we are the first manufacturer in the bike industry to meet the rigorous standards. We hope to inspire other brands in the cycling industry to improve their processes and policies.
A few examples of our efforts include; building parts that are serviceable, durable, and backed by our King Lifetime Warranty, the use of Canola oil as a cutting fluid, thorough chips recycling, our 3000 gallon water mass loop cooling and heating system, and our commuter credit program for employees who bike or use alternative transportation.
