SAUK CENTRE, Minn., – Felling Trailers was presented with the 2018 Green Manufacturing Award this past February at the NATM Conference (National Association of Trailer Manufacturers) in Fort Worth, Texas. NATM’s Green Manufacturing Award was established to recognize manufacturers that have made significant contributions towards improving their environmental impact within their manufacturing processes and facilities. The award celebrates environmental awareness and protection, as well as the business opportunities created therein.
Along with the award from the National Association of Trailer Manufacturers, there is a cash gift that is directed to a charitable organization of the recipient’s choice. Felling selected the mikeroweWorks Foundation as the recipient of the Green Award monetary donation.
As part of its efforts to debunk myths about the skilled trades and help close the skills gap, the mikeroweWORKS Foundation provides scholarships to qualified individuals willing to learn a trade that is in demand. Since its inception, the foundation has granted, or helped facilitate the granting of, more than $5 million in technical and vocational education in the United States.
“As an industry and company who relies heavily on the skills that result from trade schools, Felling Trailers, Inc. proudly selected mikeroweWORKS Foundation to receive our Green Award donation. We are grateful to the other vendors who contributed to this cause as well,” said Brenda Felling Jennissen, president/CEO of Felling Trailers, Inc.
This year’s contributors to the Green Award were: PPG, Optronics International, LaVanture Products Company, The Carlstar Group, Dexter Axle, Marsh & McLennan Agency, and Kenda/Americana Tire & Wheel for a total donation of $8,000.
