“We are so proud to have achieved this award,” said Facility Manager Scott Folnsbee. “We make a deliberate effort, every year, to be a strong corporate citizen in Androscoggin County. Above all else, we prioritize safety, health and environmental compliance. We also have a robust program to invest in our local community. We host school groups for tours, and we sponsor many community activities and youth programs.”
