BarkerBlue Recognized for Environmental Commitments

Thursday, May 07, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Chesterfield, MO – For their years of service, dedication and innovative contributions to the marketplace, BarkerBlue Digital Imaging has been selected by Wide-Format Imaging as the "2009 Reprographic Shop of the Year".   Wide-Format Imaging is a monthly business and technology publication focusing on issues of wide and grand-format imaging. 

For  almost 50 years BarkerBlue Digital Imaging has been a trailblazer on the cutting edge of technology in the AEC industry, and is now recognized as a leader in the sustainable movement of Western California.  BarkerBlue was also recently acknowledged for its work to fight climate change by the San Mateo Area Chamber of Commerce by receiving the Chamber's second annual Green Business Award.

Paving the roads green in San Mateo California, BarkerBlue completed the installation of a $1.5 million solar array in November of 2008 - large enough to power 22 homes - which covers the entire printing facility and offices. On holidays and weekends, when BarkerBlue's energy demand decreases, the system feeds power to neighboring businesses and homes via PG&E's power grid.

Complete details of BarkerBlue's solar power system, including a real-time display of power generation, can be viewed at BarkerGreen.com (http://www.barkergreen.com). Beyond its investment in solar power, the company has renovated its facility to be energy efficient, encourages its clients to use its online document/information management system to reduce unnecessary printing and is committed to using recycled paper for all general reproduction purposes.
