McCue Corporation


Retail Store Green Initiatives gain momentum: McCue Corporation sets the new standard with the strongest and most environmentally-friendly plastic store protection products in the industry.

Salem, MA, May 1, 2008 – McCue Corporation announced today the introduction of GreenGuard™, the industry’s bumper protection system that exceeds even the most demanding of retailer green requirements: it is made from a minimum of 93% pre-consumer recycled polycarbonate and is 100% recyclable. This innovative product meets the FTC’s marketing guidelines of “green” and can be used in the calculation of LEED points. In addition, it is 100% compliant with the European Union Restrictions of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive. And not only is it environmentally friendly -GreenGuard™ is 30% stronger than traditional PVC bumper.

Up to now, the industry has largely relied upon Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) for durability, performance and look. However with escalating interest in environmental friendliness and sustainability, a chlorine-free substitute was needed. With no clear green standards, McCue took a leadership role and has defined a new standard that will meet the strictest definitions of “truly green.” After experimenting with several alternative materials, the company has succeeded in developing bumper that exceeds all others – GreenGuard™.

GreenGuard™ is being well received by green conscious retailers, display and equipment manufacturers. “We have always prided ourselves on being an innovative company that delivers best-in-class products and services,” said David McCue, Founder and CEO. “I could not be more proud of our design and engineering team. With GreenGuard™, we have literally defined the industry standard for green. Good for the stores and good for the earth. Not bad, not bad at all.”
