Tile maker Questech Corp., based in Rutland, Vt., was recently recognized with the Vermont Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence and Pollution Prevention. One of three companies singled out for the honor, Questech received the award for reducing emissions at its plant through “a unique combination of chemistry, process and engineering.”

“This award reflects our commitment to pollution prevention, waste management and recycling and we hope this project inspires other businesses to join in our clean-air efforts,” commented Barry Culkin, president and CEO of Questech.

Winners were selected from a group of “Vermont individuals, organizations, institutions, public agencies, businesses and industry using innovative approaches that reduce or eliminate the generation of pollutants and wastes at the source,” according to Questech.

Culkin noted that the award reflects Questech’s commitment to “the innovative and cutting edge.”

“Questech has always been innovative and cutting edge in our approach to the tile industry, and we are applying that same way of thinking to how we can minimize our impact on the environment,” he said. “We are committed to being a responsible corporate citizen and that means caring about the well being of our employees, the community where we are located, and our customers.”
