Manufacturing is our business. How we do that is what makes us unique. The Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council Earth Day Award was presented to Empire for our sustainable process. "From a business perspective, sustainability is about broadening the traditional focus on the bottom line to one of a triple bottom line; economic prosperity, superior environmental performance and successful communities." We also received recognition from the WMC Foundation, presenting us with the Business Friend of the Environment Award.
