Woodstock's objective is to supply their customers with products of the highest quality and engineering standards, at a fair price. Through a program of Quality Control, they ship products which approach a standard of “Zero Defects” and their responsibility to the customer continues long after the sale, through instructions on care and warranty of all products as well as a refurbishing/replacement program. They will constantly strive to improve the quality, customer service, new designs and value of Woodstock Percussion products. The following is their philosophy in terms of the way they strive to serve their customers:

  • Fast, courteous, responsive service
  • Prompt shipment of orders
  • Refurbishing/replacement program
  • Listen to customers, without them chimes and musical gifts would not be heard

Since the inception of Woodstock Percussion there has always been an emphasis on the conservation of our natural resources, and the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. At Woodstock they are dedicated to preserving the world around us while continuing to maintain our excellent standards for product reliability and our relationship to the environment. 

Woodstock Percussion utilizes local and government resources to reduce its energy consumption with an active energy conservation program. An NYSERDA Energy Audit has shed light on our consumption of electricity. By installing LED lighting, low consumption lighting fixtures and bulbs, high efficiency electric motors, and “Energy Star” appliances Woodstock conserves power and saves on energy usage. This in turn saves our natural resources and reduces the greenhouse gasses generated from coal and oil fired power plants. The Energy Audit was precipitated by our roof-resurfacing project using spray polyurethane foam. This product not only seals but also yields an insulating and reflective roof coating, further saving on the energy used to heat and cool the facility. In addition to this, Woodstock has a full preventive maintenance program in place for all its equipment. Scheduled maintenance yields equipment that runs as efficiently as possible. With timely air filter replacement and air handler maintenance the HVAC runs at its optimum efficiency reducing operating costs while providing clean, fresh air to the facility. In accordance with our clean air policies, Woodstock uses only non-hazardous cleaning compounds for all its maintenance operations. 

Woodstock Percussion does its best to reuse. By reusing office supplies such as file folders, three ring binders, and office furniture Woodstock not only saves on the cost of these supplies but conserves our environment as well. Shipping does its share by reusing wooden shipping pallets. By reusing, Woodstock again does its part in the conservation of trees normally destroyed for paper and wood products while contributing to the conservation of the energy needed to manufacture these products and reduces the resulting greenhouse gasses produced. 

Woodstock Percussion recycles. In place is a full recycling program for office paper that cannot be reused, shredded paper from the destruction of confidential documents, and all containers, whether plastic, metal, or glass. Corrugated containers or “cardboard” is broken down and recycled by the shipping department. Nothing that can be recycled is thrown away. Electronic and electrical products such as computers, monitors, fluorescent light bulbs, and rechargeable batteries are all recycled, saving landfill space and eliminating the contamination caused by the many hazardous materials they contain. 

Another aspect of their recycling program is Woodstock’s use of products made with recycled materials. Using paper and other office products containing recycled material further strengthens their commitment to a greener environment. 

All employees of Woodstock Percussion are involved in the conservation of our environment and are encouraged to follow the three R’s, not only here, but also in their daily lives. By making a commitment to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle, together we can help ensure a cleaner, healthier environment, not only for ourselves, but also for the many generations to come.
