Glen Raven Custom Fabrics receives SCEEP Award

Glen Raven Custom Fabrics, a global leader in performance fabrics including the Sunbrella brand, has been recognized as one of the newest members of the South Carolina Environmental Excellence Program (SCEEP), a voluntary initiative that recognizes facilities exercising environmental leadership in the state.

"Glen Raven's Anderson facility has shown a commitment to environmental excellence by fostering continual improvements," said Bob King, DHEC's deputy commissioner for Environmental Quality Control.

"Through a comprehensive recycling program, Glen Raven prevents more than 400 tons of materials, such as packaging and paper, from going into landfills annually, while also reclaiming 500 tons of raw material waste for other product applications. Another demonstration of support for our goal of improving South Carolina's environment is their involvement in the development of the Upstate Air Quality Action Plan."

Glen Raven's Anderson manufacturing facility is a one-million-square foot, vertically integrated plant that manufactures the Sunbrella brand of performance fabrics for awnings, marine and furniture. This facility, one of the most modern in the textile industry, has been the focus of an intense environmental quality program that has eliminated landfill wastes through recycling and repurposing of waste materials.

"Throughout our history, Glen Raven has been committed to environmental excellence," said Jack Woodson, director of operations for the Anderson facility. "As we advance best practices in all areas of our operations each year, we also use state-of-the-art approaches to enhance our environmental performance."

SCEEP is a voluntary initiative designed to recognize and reward South Carolina facilities that have demonstrated environmental performance through pollution prevention, energy and resource conservation, and the use of environmental management systems. DHEC has supported the program since its creation in 1997, and Glen Raven is one of only 31 facilities in the state to have received this honor.
