“Mannington is honored to be recognized for our accomplishments.  We have a longstanding commitment to continual improvement and operational excellence, and this award validates the work our associates do in this area,” said Dave Kitts, vice president, environment, at Mannington.

Mannington was one of 55 companies to receive this distinction, representing the best environmental performers of SmartWay’s 3000-plus Partners.  The award is given to the top 1% of partners in the program.  The Excellence Awardees were honored at the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals annual conference held in Denver.  Accepting on behalf of Mannington was Paul Day, global logistics manager, who commented, “I’m delighted with our carrier partners who recognize the value of SmartWay, and Mannington includes them in this award.”

“EPA is pleased to recognize the 2013 SmartWay Excellence Award recipients.  I commend Mannington Mills for its superior environmental performance and leadership in advancing freight sector efficiency”, said Gina McCarthy, EPA administrator.  “Their commitment is helping lead the freight industry to a more sustainable future.”
