Designs Sustainability into Distribution Centers and Warehouses 

Carlstadt, NJ – June 24, 2016 – DMW&H, a full-service integrator of material handling systems, announces that the company has been named to Food Logistics Top 100 Green Supply Chain Provider Awards for 2016. Food Logistics is the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain. DMW&H was chosen for helping retailers, manufacturers and distributors invoke green warehouse processes by reducing energy usage and improving energy efficiency.

“DMW&H has helped several clients reduce energy usage, reuse packaging and recycle materials in their warehouses, resulting in net zero energy usage and zero waste, which is a huge savings that add to bottom line revenues,” said Joe Colletti, President of DMW&H. “Retrofitting existing equipment can boost efficiency by 15-20%, energy efficient conveyors can cut energy bills by 90% and simply replacing lighting fixtures with energy efficient fixtures can save 50% more energy. These are just some of the things our professionals implement to help clients’ warehouses reduce carbon emissions, lower energy usage and improve sustainability efforts. We are pleased to once again win this prestigious award.”

“The 2016 Top Green Providers reached a new record high for applicants and recipients, confirming the importance of sustainability in the global food and beverage supply chain,” says Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director, supply chain network, at AC Business Media. “Our industry’s continued focus on environmental stewardship and the role that growers, manufacturers, logistics companies, retailers and others play is driving heightened awareness and actions aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions while simultaneously boosting cost and energy efficiencies.”

DMW&H is a material handling systems integrator that designs sustainability into distribution centers to lower energy usage and reduce carbon emissions. From energy efficient conveyors that use sensors to tell the conveyor to start moving when a product is close by and to stop as soon as it passes, saving energy, to the installation of solar panels on roof tops that create enough energy to run an entire operation (net-zero). Small sustainability efforts that give huge payoffs can include the installation of fans to circulate air; reclaiming water used for landscaping and recycling packaging to maximize the use of materials and to help lower a distribution center’s carbon footprint.
