Precision Machine Inc. Celebrates Four Years of Green Tier Status
Precision Machine Inc., a leader in value added machining, is celebrating four years in Wisconsin’s innovative Green Tier program.
Precision Machine is participating in Tier 1 of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Green Tier program, which is designed to encourage new goal setting and innovation. “Precision Machine should be proud of its environmental leadership and its benefits to the community,” said DNR Northeast Secretary’s Director Jean Romback-Bartels. As part of the celebration, Bartels toured the company and met with their management and environmental committee.
Green Tier encourages businesses and other organizations to voluntarily collaborate with DNR to move beyond compliance with regulations and to achieve superior environmental performance. To participate, an applicant must have a good environmental compliance record, commit to improving their environmental performance and implement an Environmental Management System.
“We not only wanted to do what was right for our customers, but we wanted to improve our community and the lives of our people,” said Jamie Spitzer, President of Precision Machine. “Joining Green Tier has been a step in the right direction as it is helping us achieve our vision.”
Spitzer said Precision Machine employees participated in a tree-planting project to help offset their carbon footprint. By planting 2,100 trees, the employees were able to triple the offset to the carbon footprint created by the production of their office paper.
