Glen Raven plant earns green award in South Carolina
August 8, 2008,
Glen Raven Custom Fabrics was recognized as one of the newest members of the South Carolina Environmental Excellence Program, a voluntary initiative that recognizes facilities exercising environmental leadership in the state.
Glen Raven’s Anderson plant is a 1 million-sq.-ft., vertically integrated manufacturing facility making Sunbrella brand performance fabrics for awnings, marine and furniture. Its intense environmental quality program eliminated landfill wastes through recycling and repurposing of waste materials.
“Throughout our history, Glen Raven has been committed to environmental excellence,” said Jack Woodson, director of operations for the Anderson facility. “As we advance best practices in all areas of our operations each year, we also use state-of-the-art approaches to enhance our environmental performance.”
