On June 3rd, 2014, Danko Arlington’s was formally recognized as one of six Maryland manufacturers who participated in this year’s Regional Manufacturing Institute of Maryland’s Energy Efficiency Program.
Over two hundred and fifty attendees gathered at the North Baltimore Plaza Hotel to learn how Danko Arlington and other participating companies will reduce waste and energy. Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley and Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) Director Abigail Hopper were also in attendance to thank and praise this year’s ‘graduates.’
The six month intensive program was in conjunction with RMI, MEA, and the Maryland Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MDMEP). During that time, participating companies underwent energy/facility audits, networked with other local manufacturers, and received energy saving suggestions from employee groups known as “Green Teams.’’
This unique and innovative program has helped Danko Arlington to promote energy savings awareness, reduce costs, and ultimately become an even more efficient Next Generation manufacturer.
