The Chamber Ambassadors for the Valdosta-Lowndes Chamber of Commerce honored Letica Corporation as the Leading Business of the Week for August 26, 2019.
Letica Corporation is an environmentally conscious company dedicated to providing eco-friendly products for the general population. This includes a commitment to making lightweight products, reusable and recyclable packaging, and creating renewable materials.
One of the Letica Corporation's best accomplishments is integrating with Berry Global, another company dedicated to conserving energy and creating a healthier environment.
"Berry Global Group, Inc. has announced its sustainability strategy through a company initiative named "Impact 2025". As a part of the initiative, Berry will focus on further increasing the positive impact it has through its products, performance and partners with a long-term plan for the year 2025." Richard A. Colangelo, general manager of the Letica Alabama and Georgia Plants, said.
Colangelo went on to say that their primary goals for the project were helping climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 25% and reducing landfill waste by 5% per year. They also plan to end plastic waste by expanding its usage through alternative means.
The Letica Corporation is passionate about improving the lives of those in the Georgia-Alabama area.
"I have a great deal of autonomy running both the Alabama and Georgia plants. Everyone shares the same vision and is dedicated to the same goals and initiatives," Colangelo said.
The Letica Corporation is a proud member of the Valdosta-Lowndes Chamber of Commerce, citing the regular networking events as a great way to allow members to exchange ideas, develop relationships, and improve their professional work.
"The Chamber is essential to the growth and revitalization of this community. They guide and support Lowndes County intending to increase economic opportunities and fostering a healthy business climate," Colangelo said.
