Clarksville-Montgomery County Green Certification ProgramMontgomery County, TN – Trane, a global provider of heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) is celebrating 100 years in business. Locally, Trane has been manufacturing industrial air conditioners in the community for 55 years.

The company has a rich history of giving back to Clarksville-Montgomery County with involvement in our local schools, United Way, other charitable organizations and with the Clarksville-Montgomery County Green Certification Program.

Carolyn Bowers, Montgomery County Mayor and Kim McMillan, City of Clarksville Mayor along with Melinda Shepard, Vice President of Clarksville Area Chamber of Commerce joined company leadership to celebrate their CMC Green Certification.

When asked by Bowers about the types of things they’ve done, Eric Sims, Lean Change Agent and Plant Manager Adi Singh discussed the increased recycling efforts, water conservation initiatives that resulted in a 40% reduction in water use, equipment shut-down procedures that resulted in energy savings, turning scrap metal into usable parts, decreasing storm water pollution and moving from wooden pallets to reusable heavy duty plastic pallets.

Bowers explained to the group that the life of Bi-County Solid Waste Management’s Landfill is extended because of initiatives taken like the ones at Trane.

Singh commented, “I’m impressed by the Bi-County collection spots. I’m taking my daughter every weekend and I see how well everyone sorts the items to be recycled. I no longer think that I have to have curbside recycling.” He also added that the money generated from recycling aluminum cans in the plant is matched dollar for dollar by Trane and goes to the support the Ronald McDonald House.

Sims said the employees voted on which charity to support with the recycling funds and the Ronald McDonald House was their top choice.

McMillan asked if their efforts were translating to the employees taking these efforts seriously, as well as into their households.

“We have been pleasantly surprised at how well our employees separate and recycle within the facility and they often talk about the recycling they do at home,” said Sims.

Trane helped with the development of the CMC Green Certification Program. In addition, the plant manager volunteers his time and expertise on the Steering Committee and allows Sims to share his talents in conducting some of the workshops.

Next Saturday, May 11th, Trane will host a steam clean-up event at Spring Creek. Call Joan Pulley at 931.648.5256 if you are interested in helping.
