Arch Aluminum & Glass Recognized for Environmental Stewardship

The Fort Pierce, Fla.-based mirror division of Arch Aluminum & Glass has received the 2006 Environmental Stewardship award from the Fort Pierce Utility Authority (FPUA). The Arch division was one of only three businesses in the FPUA jurisdiction to receive the award, which recognizes zero deviation from permitted effluent concentrations.

"We are thrilled by this honor," says Anthony Lawson, director of mirror operations for Arch. "Our people work very hard to produce the best quality mirror in the industry, while also doing the right thing by our earth."

In 2006 Arch ran more than 12 million square feet of mirror, and used current technologies to ensure complete compliance with all requirements and standards. The company is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and follows a number of green operating practices, including water re-circulation and energy and consumable reduction programs, at its facilities throughout North America.
