Tyco Retail Solutions’ Matamoros facility receives Green Supply Chain Award
Tyco Retail Solutions has been recognized for its commitment to promoting and supporting sustainability initiatives for retailers.
The company has been selected as a recipient of the 2016 Supply & Demand Chain Executive Green Supply Chain Award, an annual distinction that recognizes providers of supply chain solutions and services who assist their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals.
Tyco’s 2016 award is in recognition of industry leading green initiatives in the company’s Matamoros, Mexico manufacturing facility.
The manufacturing facility in Mexico earned recognition nationally with a 2015 Environmental Award from the National Council of the Maquiladora and Export Manufacturing Industry of Mexico.
The same facility achieved ISO 50001:2011 certification this year for its effort to conserve resources through the development of an energy management system.
The facility’s most recent honor comes from Supply and Demand Chain Executive, which recognizes measurable improvements in sustainability.
The Tyco Mexico facility produces a range of anti-theft, security and fire protection products for retailers worldwide and was built using recycled building materials.
It features solar roof panels, which supply internal LED lighting for reduced power consumption, water efficient devices and a thermal reflective building coating. Over the course of 2.5 years the energy management system has provided a 47 percent improvement in energy efficiency.
