MONROE, WA – Canyon Creek Cabinet Co. was recently chosen for a 2008 Governor’s Award for Sustainable Practices. The award was based upon its comprehensive efforts to incorporate sustainable practices throughout its operations, as well as years of commitment to the reduction of waste and toxic chemicals.

Canyon Creek had previously won the Governor’s Award in 1999. A panel of pollution-prevention experts and representatives from business, labor, governmental groups and academia made the award selection from a group of 31 contenders.

“This is truly a prestigious award and one that we are very proud to receive. We would not have won this award had it not been for the hard work of John Earl, our environmental manager, Bryan Jarvis, our director of manufacturing, Mike Jackson, our director of engineering, and Roger Felton, our AKZO/Nobel representative, as well as numerous employees throughout our plant,” said President Bill Weaver.
