CURRIES environmental initiative recognized

CURRIES is the recipient of the 2008 Governor’s Iowa Environmental Excellence Award – special recognition in Energy Efficiency/Renewable Energy.

The Governor’s Environmental Excellence Awards are the premier environmental honors in Iowa, designed to recognize Iowa organizations, businesses, and individuals who have demonstrated leadership, innovation, and a comprehensive environmental ethic in effectively managing natural resources.

CURRIES implemented a new door skin drying process that reduced the facility’s annual use of natural gas by 33%. As a result, 349 tons of carbon dioxide emissions were eliminated.

“CURRIES is committed to being an environmentally-sensitive manufacturer,” said company president and CEO, Jerry Currie.

“We take great pride not only in producing the best doors and frames in the industry, but also in our continuous efforts to implement more energy efficient production techniques. This recognition from the Governor is an honor we accept with great pride.”

Governor Chet Culver presented the award to representatives from CURRIES at an awards ceremony earlier this summer.
