(Denver, Colorado, April 27, 2018) –The Metro Wastewater Reclamation District has awarded Goldberg Brothers, Inc. a Gold Award certificate for 100% compliance to wastewater pretreatment requirements in 2017, in a ceremony held on April 25, 2018 at the district’s administrative offices.
Goldberg Brothers was one of seventeen industrial companies in the metropolitan Denver area to be honored at the annual event for their demonstrated commitment to environmental excellence.
Goldberg Brothers maintenance manager John Ward, who accepted the award, said the company will continue to work toward 100% compliance in its new reclamation district now that the company has relocated outside of MWRD boundaries. All water used in the company’s manufacturing processes goes through a multi-stage filtration system to remove metal particles and to adjust the pH balance before being discharged into the municipal drainage system.
“It is just good business to do our best to comply with environmental regulations,” said company president John Golesh. “We try to go beyond the minimum requirements, though. We use recycled steel in most of our barn door hardware components and other products. We have also equipped our new building with LED lighting, motion-sensing switches, and a new, energy-efficient powdercoating system.” The company also uses water-soluble lubricants in its stamping processes, recycles scrap metal, and has eliminated the use of solvent-based paints.
The Metro Wastewater Reclamation District has presented fifteen Gold Awards to Goldberg Brothers since 1992. District officials also presented a Platinum Award to the company in 2003, for five consecutive years of 100% compliance.
