Linetec won a 2019 Wisconsin Business Friend of the Environment Award. The awards are hosted by the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) to honor environmental stewardship, innovation and sustainability.

Linetec was recognized in the category of Environmental Innovation for demonstrating the creative use of technology or process to improve the environment. The company previously earned the 2012 award in this category and has continued to improve upon its environmental initiatives and successes, according to the company.

“We are proud of our long-standing reputation as a leader in environmentally conscious practices and sustainable finishing options,” says Linetec president Rick Marshall. “For nearly 20 years, environmental responsibility has been written into Linetec’s core values. Our practices push the envelope on reducing waste streams and improving energy usage, and have yielded notable savings and significant conservation of precious, natural resources.”

Linetec’s vice president of sales and marketing, Jon Close, and marketing manager, Tammy Schroeder, accepted the award on August 13 at the 30th Annual Wisconsin Business Friend of the Environment Awards. The presentation was part of the WMC’s Policy Day program held at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison, Wis.
