FAIRFIELD, N.J. -- April 21, 2016 -- Middle Atlantic Products has furthered its efforts to lead the way in sustainable manufacturing by recently attaining GreenCircle Certification (GreenCircle Certified, LLC) for Waste Diversion from Landfill for its manufacturing facility in Fairfield, New Jersey. Sustainability has been a critical focus for the organization since its inception in 1979, and that commitment has taken on new meaning with continuous improvement efforts towards zero waste while growing and expanding operations.
"Middle Atlantic has a rich history of environmental responsibility, driven by the aggressive sustainability standards we've set for ourselves," said Mike Baker, president of Middle Atlantic Products.

Managing our manufacturing processes to result in such little waste is an incredible accomplishment, and I'm proud of how hard our team has worked to reach this milestone.
