LEXINGTON, KY -- Florida Tile was honored twice recently by the University of Kentucky for its achievements in resource sustainability practices in 2011, and by the Kentucky Energy Alliance for its commitment to energy management.

On November 3, 2011, the University of Kentucky’s College of Agriculture recognized Florida Tile and others who “promote sustainable practices and have made impacts at the state regional and global levels.” Winners were chosen based on their contributions to societal, corporate, economic and environmental sustainability. The award ceremony was part of the University’s Sustainability and Environmental Summit.

Further, during the October 11 meeting of the Kentucky Energy Alliance (KEA), Florida Tile was honored for achieving the Save Energy Now (SEN) Level One, the top rating for energy management, at its Lawrenceburg facility.
