NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has singled out Manitowoc Foodservice as the 2010 Energy Star partner of the year, an accomplishment that will be lauded at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. tomorrow.
“EPA is recognizing Manitowoc Foodservice for taking the lead in addressing climate change through their commitment to energy efficiency,” said Gina McCarthy, EPA assistant administrator for Air and Radiation. “Manitowoc Foodservice brands are producing and promoting products that have earned the Energy Star, showing customers that together, we can increase our nation’s energy efficiency and reduce our emissions of greenhouse gases.”
The equipment manufacturer continues to invest in research and development of products that benefit the customer’s bottom line and the environment, contributing to Energy Star’s $17 billion reduction of American’s energy bills in 2009. In fact, last year, the company’s energy star portfolio increased by 50 per cent.
“We’re not just selling an ice machine or a fryer; we’re going beyond to address customer needs such as energy conservation, operating efficiency and culinary R&D. It is an honour to have our ongoing efforts recognized by the EPA,” said Mike Kachmer, president of Manitowoc Foodservice.
