FCCC Receives Esteemed Daimler Environmental Leadership Award

April 21, 2010

GAFFNEY, SC - A leader in sustainability efforts in the trucking industry, Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) recently received the  Environmental Leadership Award from Daimler AG.

The award recognizes initiatives within the vast Daimler organization that enhance environmental protection and sustainability. FCCC took top honors in the "Extraordinary Efforts for the Environment" category and was one of three Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) projects, and one of just ten projects worldwide, to be recognized during a ceremony recently in Stuttgart, Germany.

FCCC's application, "The Evolution of Environmental Responsibility at FCCC," focused upon its Zero Waste to Landfill efforts at its headquarters and manufacturing facility in Gaffney, S.C.

In October 2009, FCCC became the first chassis manufacturer and first company within the trucking industry to reach Zero Waste to Landfill status in the United States, achieving its goal three months ahead of schedule.

"We're honored that Daimler AG recognized FCCC's commitment to reducing our carbon footprint within our manufacturing facility and company headquarters," Bob Harbin, president of FCCC said. "It is our goal to continue to lessen our environmental impact, while remaining focused on engineering and designing new alternative-fuel chassis that will help our customers reduce their carbon footprint as well. As evidence of our sustainability efforts, FCCC will persist in its efforts to look for ways to improve our environment both at the plant and with our energy-saving products."
