MONTREAL, June 9 /CNW Telbec/ - Globe Electric Company Inc., a leading
designer, manufacturer and marketer of lighting and electrical products, is
pleased to announce that it has been named the 2008 ENERGY STAR(R)
Manufacturer of the Year. This is the second consecutive year that Globe has
been recognized for its significant contribution to the ENERGY STAR program,
having won Recruit of the Year in 2007.
The past year was one of Globe's strongest - particularly when it came to
ENERGY STAR and energy-efficient products. Globe's line of ENERGY STAR
qualified products expanded from 1 to 9 categories and with it, the expansion
of the Globe enersaver(R) brand. The number of ENERGY STAR qualified products
jumped from 40 to over 350. Globe's Energy Division flourished, spreading the
word and developing partnerships across North America.
"We are deeply honored by this recognition. Globe takes great pride in
its ability to provide customers throughout Canada and the United States with
one of the broadest selections of energy-efficient products on the market,"
says Edward Weinstein, President and CEO of Globe. "Being selected as the
Energy Star Manufacturer of the Year honors our high level of commitment to
promoting energy-smart products that slow global warming and help in the
reduction of greenhouse gas emissions."
The ENERGY STAR Market Transformation Awards recognize participating
companies and organizations that have surpassed the competition in offering
Canadian consumers the most energy-efficient product, technology or service
available on the market. The winners are selected from organizations that
participate in the ENERGY STAR program. ENERGY STAR in Canada is a voluntary
arrangement between Natural Resources Canada's Office of Energy Efficiency and
organizations that build, manufacture, sell or promote products that meet the
ENERGY STAR levels of energy performance.
The ENERGY STAR Market Transformation Awards Dinner took place on the
evening of June 4, 2008 at the Fairmont Château Laurier in Ottawa, Ontario.
Globe was proud to have the opportunity to celebrate this great achievement
with other environmentally-minded organizations.
