We are proud to announce that we were the recipients of Pratt & Whitney’s 2019 Supplier Sustainability Award. This is one of their highest supplier honors. The award was presented to us at their Global Supplier Conference in November.
Pratt & Whitney presents this award annually to recognize a supplier for their dedication to environmental sustainability. As a global leader in the aviation industry, Pratt & Whitney powers flight through the design, manufacture and service of aircraft and helicopter engines, and auxiliary power units.
Scott Livingston, President, CEO and the third generation of Livingston’s to lead Horst, challenges his team to mitigate industrial impact through smart technology and lean principles. “Green manufacturing is lean enterprise and is more possible than ever before. Process innovation, employee safety, environmentally friendly materials and decarbonized energy all allow us to make the change needed now for a cleaner tomorrow, while supporting our customer’s needs for the highest quality precision machined parts,” explains Scott.
“At HORST, responsible business is woven into our culture and processes; from self-generating our own solar power to ensuring we support efficient manufacturing process that reduce our footprint, Horst aspires to be a Zero Waste organization,” said HORST Director of Sales, Christina Mouradjian. “Our current focus is the renovation of a new state of the art manufacturing facility in East Hartford that will support industry growth while minimizing our impact on the environment.”
“HORST’s holistic approach made them a standout among the applicants,” said Lisa Szewczul, vice president, Environment, Health & Safety, Pratt & Whitney. “The HORST commitment to sustainability couldn’t be more in sync with our own. Pratt & Whitney’s vision is to be the best aerospace company for the world. And we do that, in part, through supporting our suppliers’ sustainability efforts. HORST demonstrates an aviation manufacturing philosophy that includes sustainability to support business goals while helping reduce the environmental footprint.”
