Delta Faucet Company has been named the 2011 WaterSense Manufacturer Partner of the Year by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The manufacturer of Delta, Brizo and Peerless branded products was recognised for its support of the WaterSense program and ongoing commitment to promoting advancements in water efficiency.
“As a company, we place a high priority on products that address today’s water conservation concerns and promote water quality and accessibility. We strongly value our relationship with the WaterSense program, a sentiment that is due in part to our organisations’ shared belief that it is possible to create products that are both water-efficient and high performing without taking away from the end user’s experience or decreasing the quality of performance,” said Keith Allman, president, Delta Faucet Company.
Paul Patton, senior product development manager, accepted the award on behalf of Delta Faucet Company at the 2011 WaterSmart Innovations Conference and Exposition annual awards banquet in Las Vegas.
The WaterSense program, a partnership program by the EPA, aims to protect the future of the US water supply by providing people with easy and identifiable ways to conserve water. It helps consumers maintain high environmental standards and save money without compromising performance.
Launched in 2008, the WaterSense Partner of the Year awards recognises partners that help advance the overall mission of the WaterSense program, demonstrate overall excellence in the water-efficiency arena and increase awareness of the WaterSense brand in a measurable way. Each year, the program recognizes just one manufacturer.
