Retrotech Earns Honor for Exceeding Sustainability Standards in the Food Industry

Victor, NY, July 20, 2013 --( Leading industry publication, Food Logistics, has chosen Retrotech Inc. as one of their 2013 Top Green Providers, honoring Retrotech for the second consecutive year. The Top Green Providers list was created to recognize companies in the food and beverage supply chain sector that have embraced sustainability practices and played a key role in their customers’ own sustainability efforts.

Retrotech was selected based on their efforts to modernize existing automated material handling systems for customers to optimize their distribution operations and minimize their carbon footprint. “Our customers have seen the benefits that can be obtained by reusing/retrofitting their current automated systems, to increase both operating and environmental performance,” said Paul Deveikis, CEO. “By modernizing, adding automation, integrating new technology and parts to systems, not only have we improved their productivity, we’ve also helped them reduce their environmental impact – e.g. energy savings by controlling the use of the conveyors, waste reduction by extending the life of the equipment, cost reduction by upgrading the systems to handle more products in less time, etc.”

This year’s selectees include food producers and manufacturers, 3PLs, transportation and logistics providers, equipment manufacturers, and others whose products and services are driving sustainability from farm to fork. “We are honored to join so many great companies in the Top Green Providers list. This recognition further validates one of our core values at Retrotech, accountability, not only to our clients, but also to our environment,” adds Deveikis. Sabine Rolland, Director of Strategic Programs at Legris Industries, in charge of Sustainability for the group states “This new award confirms the strong commitment of Retrotech, a Savoye company, to provide innovative technologies and solutions that meet the challenges of sustainable development.”
