Richards Graphics & Primary Energy Win Certificate of Merit in the Great Lakes Graphics Association Awards for 2019
Primary Energy’s employees took part in an employee-based calendar photo contest titled “The Great Outdoors” during the fall of 2018. The customized employee calendar featured various outdoor landscapes and beautiful backdrops from all over the country. The finished product, which included 12 winning photos for each month of the year, was submitted to Richards Graphics for printing, and it was distributed to Primary Energy Employees during their annual holiday event in early January 2019. The Great Lakes Graphics Association (GLGA) Graphics Excellence Awards Competition is one of the largest printing competitions in the nation. Richards Graphic Communications and Primary Energy won a Certificate of Merit for the 2019 Calendar. The judging criteria included registration, crossovers, clarity and neatness, sharpness of halftones and line drawings, richness and tonal qualities of color, paper and ink selection, ink coverage, difficulty of printing, effective contrast or softness, finishing, bindery and overall visual impact. Primary Energy Recycling Holdings, who have the creative people with innovative ideas and photos, along with the skilled production of Richards Graphic Communications, make the perfect team! Congratulations to our Primary Energy Employees on your creative and innovative photos!
Wildlife Habitat Council
As part of our partnership with the Wildlife Habitat Council, Primary Energy Team had the opportunity to participate in a tree planting at the Port of Indiana in Portage on May 2, 2019. The event is a part of the US Forest Service Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Grants and supported by the ecological and community focus of the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation towards increasing urban-industrial conservation partnerships in the Calumet Region. Per Luke Ford, Primary Energy's Director of EHS, " We survived the rain and completed the project before the heaviest rains began". Thank you to Luke, Dave, Rachel and Dominick for participating.
NMA Zero Injury Safety Award (ZISA)
148,000 hours worked by our Enerfab embedded maintenance crews. Bob Wranosky, Luke Ford, Jim Wheeler (Enerfab Superintendent) and Dave Eckhard (Enerfab Boilermaker Foreman) have traveled to Washington to attend the Award Ceremony. Per Keith Kaufman, GM of Cokenergy; "This award is for cumulative hours worked since Enerfab first worked on site, starting with our HRSG retubes. Since this is for last year, and we have had no recordable injuries to date this year, this means that we will have well over 150,000 hrs worked for 2018, and will be in the next level of Awards for the ZISA." Great job team!!!
