For the second consecutive year, H.C. Starck was among 11 companies honored at the 2012 Northeast Ohio Evolution of Manufacturing Awards sponsored by Smart Business magazine. The company was recognized for its excellence in manufacturing execution and implementation of Lean Manufacturing, Six Sigma, and a Sustainable Energy Management system, and for going “green.”

Going “green” means total compliance with local, state, federal and international environmental regulations. In addition, H.C. Starck’s materials contribute to the energy efficiencies of electronic devices such as smart phones, tablet PCs, and HDTVs, the fuel efficiency of airplanes, and “green” energy generation by solar panels. A joint venture to develop and manufacture cathode materials for high-performance lithium-ion batteries to power electric cars ranks high on the company’s list of green initiatives.

“We are honored to receive this award in Euclid for the second year,” said Dmitry Shashkov, president and CEO of H.C. Starck’s Fabricated Products business segment. “Since 2011, H.C. Starck has increased its involvement in environmentally friendly technologies such as solar power, green energy generation and transmission, and energy-efficient lighting such as LED. This award reflects our ongoing commitment to both our employees and communities, as well as to larger environmental issues that H.C. Starck products can help address.”
