The Linc Group, an ABM Industries company, is the winner of an award that honors well-performing companies that use and promote sustainable business practices. The Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) Orange County Chapter presented its 2011 Green Award to The Linc Group at the 16th Annual ACG Awards Event, held last month in Newport Beach, California.
The Linc Group ("Linc") provides end-to-end integrated facility services that improve operating efficiencies, reduce energy consumption and lower overall operational costs of critical facilities, installations and buildings in the government, commercial and residential markets. Linc was acquired by ABM Industries on December 1, 2010.
"We were delighted that our focus on delivering sustainable services to so many of our clients has been recognized especially when that recognition comes in the form of such a prestigious award from the Association for Corporate Growth," said The Linc Group CEO and Chairman, and now ABM Industries Executive Vice President, Tracy K. Price.
The Linc Group was one of five Orange Country-based companies to take home an Association for Corporate Growth Award. ACG's award selection committee chose the winners from more than 100 nominations.
Cary Booth Kaufman, ACG Awards Event Chairperson and Vice President of Madison Square Partners said: "The Linc Group epitomizes the corporate growth that ACG Orange County was founded upon, and this successful Orange County business will grow even stronger with the acquisition by ABM. The Linc Group also shines as the winner of our Green Award, which honors a company that has done something unique in a product or service that benefits our environment. The Linc Group's consistent innovation in energy reduction and commitment to Green and Clean' initiatives made the company a wonderful choice for this year's winner."
Price said the business will continue to grow its sustainability offerings.
Said Price: "We are deeply committed to the green and sustainable building market, an area where we see enormous opportunity. This year we will be expanding our bundled energy solutions and continuing to develop energy-related technology innovations, always with a focus on cost effective solutions that enable our clients to reduce their operating expenses. We also expect to see continued expansion in GreenHomes America, our home performance contracting business that helps residential customers reduce energy consumption and costs."
