PITTSBURGH, PA -- Ardex Americas was recently named a 2011 Pittsburgh Business Ethics Awards finalist in the medium sized business category.

“Ardex Americas has always been committed to ethical business practices,” said Stephan M. Liozu, President and CEO of Ardex Americas. “Environmental consciousness and business integrity are two prominent areas we focus on as a company- they go to the core of our culture, vision and mission. We are extremely proud of this recognition.”

Pittsburgh Business Ethics Awards finalists are evaluated on demonstration of executive commitment to business ethics, clear communication of ethical standards to employees, consistently high quality of products and services, and a commitment to community and charitable involvement.

“We believe acting ethically as a company involves more than making the right business decisions, it involves giving back to the local community,” said Liozu. “Community stakeholders directly affect our company reputation and our corporate culture.”
