Boston, Mass. (PRWEB) March 3, 2010
UGL Unicco, a subsidiary of UGL Limited (ASX:UGL), today announced that it has been selected by Utica National Insurance Group to provide custodial services for the company's headquarters, east regional office and archives warehouse, all in the Utica, N.Y. area.
UGL Unicco was awarded the three-year contract due to its leadership in providing sustainable facilities services. It is implementing its UGL Unicco GreenClean® program, replacing traditional, petroleum-based cleaners and solvents with Green Seal-certified sustainable cleaning solutions. UGL Unicco also immediately replaced all of the cleaning equipment with updated equipment, such as high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA)-certified vacuum cleaners.
"We're pleased to have UGL Unicco with its green cleaning expertise and sustainability programs at our disposal," said Utica National Director of Administrative Services Beth Treen. "Our goal is to provide a safe, healthy environment for our employees."
"Utica National understands the value of sustainability," commented UGL Unicco Director of Operations Erick Van Savage. "Their facilities are in excellent shape, yet these advanced techniques will create an even better work environment. Introducing sustainable practices to new clients, such as Utica National, is especially rewarding because they understand and appreciate the benefits that these programs bring."
