AmeriPride Services, a textile services and supply company said it received the SafeTRSA Innovation Award and the Clean Green Innovation Award for its efforts to improve plant safety and the environmental impacts of its operations.

AmeriPride’s comprehensive approach includes reducing fleet emissions and increasing fuel efficiency through the use of alternative fuel vehicles like; CNG, propane, electric, and hybrids, double-decker trailers, rerouting and telematics technology.

“These awards build our credibility in the industry and with our customers, and provide third-party validation that we are doing the right things to improve safety and reduce our impact on the environment,” said Eric Davis, Director of Environmental Health and Safety at AmeriPride.
