By strategically aligning our divisions to create more environmentally supportive products, Arnco will differentiate itself not only by becoming more meaningful to our customers, employees, and vendors, but to the environment as well."
South Gate, CA (Vocus) December 4, 2009
Arnco, one of the world's largest suppliers of polyurethane products, announces the appointment of Bill Hory as their Green Enabling Officer (GEO), a position that Arnco believes is the first of its kind.
The announcement came from Arnco President Larry Carapellotti, who said, “During the past 15 years, Bill has had the unique experience in our company of developing business across all divisions both, domestic and internationally. Having this familiarity will better enable Bill to be more effective when designing, implementing, and communicating Arnco’s evolving sustainable initiatives.”
As Arnco has grown from a small, one-product manufacturer almost four decades ago, to one of the largest independently owned chemical systems manufacturer today, the idea of corporate citizenship and incorporating pro-social values into its business practices has taken on an even greater importance.
When asked about the business case for going green, Bill replied, “By strategically aligning our divisions to create more environmentally supportive products, Arnco will differentiate itself not only by becoming more meaningful to our customers, employees, and vendors, but to the environment as well. Moreover, by having this mission that is above and beyond profits, will enable the Arnco brand to be perceived as more honest, transparent, and authentic.”
During the past eighteen months, Arnco’s competitively priced Ecofil Tire Flatproofing product has already sold over ten million pounds and saved an estimated 14,000 barrels of oil and petrochemical products that are currently found in traditional tire-fill products. “This is just one example of how Arnco’s customers have become both more profitable and more responsive to the growing demand for greener products, and there is more to follow.”
Arnco’s corporate headquarters are in based in South Gate, California, with production facilities in South Gate, California, Berea, Ohio, and Manchester, England. For further information, visit the Arnco website at http://www.arnconet.com.
