Home / News / Press Releases /
NIAGARA FALLS, New York—November 15, 2005—ICC Compliance Center, Inc. has recently been accepted by the Partners for Environmental Progress (PEP) as a new member company. PEP is a local nonprofit consortium of Mobile, Alabama area companies bound together by the principles of clean air and water, and the balancing of environmental stewardship with economic development.
"We are pleased to welcome ICC and look forward to their safety and regulatory expertise working to help our membership and our community," said Jeanne D. Harris, executive director of PEP. Many of PEP member companies are chemical producers challenged daily by federal hazardous materials regulations relating to the safe handling, storage and shipping of flammable liquids, corrosives and oxidizers, to name a few.
"ICC is also committed to protecting the environment; we therefore see a good fit with the founding principles that PEP stands for," stated Karrie Ishmael, manager of US operations and director of marketing. ICC was also the first associate member of the Canadian Chemical Producers Association (CCPA), an Ottawa-based organization who supports clean air and water under the auspices of the "Responsible Care" mantra. "We look forward to working closer with current South Alabama customers, as well as establishing new relationships, as part of the PEP team," Ishmael added.
ICC now has a stocking distributor in Birmingham, Alabama, promoting cost savings to its customers through enhanced product availability and reduced shipping costs. South-Pak, Inc. will also be active in PEP events and promote its environmental protection principles through the use of ICC's products and services.
