Middle Atlantic Products recently attained GreenCircle Certification (GreenCircle Certified LLC) for Waste Diversion from Landfill for its manufacturing facility in Fairfield, N.J. Sustainability has been a critical focus for the organization since its inception in 1979, and that commitment has taken on new meaning with continuous improvement efforts towards zero waste while growing and expanding operations.
“Middle Atlantic has a rich history of environmental responsibility, driven by the aggressive sustainability standards we’ve set for ourselves,” said Mike Baker, president of Middle Atlantic Products. “Every employee is committed to continuously improving our sustainability practices as we grow our business to better serve our customers. Managing our manufacturing processes to result in such little waste is an incredible accomplishment, and I’m proud of how hard our team has worked to reach this milestone. We’ll keep pushing until we’re at completely zero waste.”
In specific terms, the certification has verified that Middle Atlantic’s Fairfield manufacturing facility diverts 96 percent of non-hazardous and hazardous materials from landfill. The ability to divert waste comes from environmentally conscious processes spanning product inception to manufacturing to delivery. Middle Atlantic remains committed to reusing material, sourcing sustainable parts, and recycling. Manufacturing its solutions in the U.S., Middle Atlantic is dedicated to evolving its role as a leading corporate advocate for sustainable business practices and will be launching several more environmental initiatives in the near future.
Middle Atlantic Products has been part of the Legrand group since Legrand acquired it in 2011.
