Making Femco's office and factory more sustainable

Femco begins the year of 2023 with the installation of 186 new solar panels on the roof of both its office and factory in the Netherlands. The decision to purchase solar panels was a sustainable investment in the company and the environment. Femco manufactures and produces our products in our own factory. This requires a lot of energy. Femco has made the choice to have the entire roof covered with solar panels to ensure a large part of Femco’s electricity is supplied by green power.

Femco sustainable solar panels

Femco tries to be a sustainable business in several ways. Femco’s products allow for the draining of oil in a controlled and environmentally risk free way. Because of our products, less oil is wasted and spilled during routine maintenance.
Now the products known for contributing to a cleaner process of vehicle maintenance are cleanly and sustainably manufactured as well.

How does the Femco oil drain plug work?
(Click Drain)

Click Drain plug for engines

Femco’s Click Drain system is perfect for performing fleet maintenance.
This is how it works:

1. Install the Femco oil drain plug and unscrew the cap.

2. Easily connect the Femco clicker coupling.

3. Draining the oil starts. By using an EVAC Unit, the oil will be completely drained within seconds.

Femco’s click drain system was built from the ground up to save you time and money. It’s quick connect drainer simply clicks onto the drain plug, opening the valve and allowing oil to flow out. Due to its brass construction, oil can be drained at engine temperature without risk of burns. This ensures any particulates or sludge left in the engine are flushed out with the more viscous hot oil. Draining oil hot results faster drain times, a cleaner oil change, and there’s no need to wait for the motor to cool down before service. When coupled with an oil evacuation unit, the Femco system can fully drain a truck in just seconds.

The Femco® drainage systems are the result of over 30 years of experience in developing and manufacturing oil drain plugs. Our oil drain plugs enable technicians to change oil in an efficient, safe and more environmentally friendly way. 
Femco plugs are made of solid brass construction and have limited lifetime warranties.
