The Trelleborg Wheels Systems facility in Liepaja, Latvia, has been awarded the State Environmental Service’s (SES) ‘Green Excellence Award’, an accolade that not only acknowledges high environmental standards, but also ensures Trelleborg will hold SES environmental certification for a further three years. The award was given by Kaspars Gerhards, Latvia’s Minister of Environmental Protection and Regional Development, and Inga Koļegova, Director General of the SES.

“We are delighted to have been recognised so enthusiastically by one of the most prestigious measures of environmental performance,” commented Liene Giertmane-Done, manager of the Trelleborg Wheel Systems manufacturing facility in Liepaja. “To receive the SES ‘Green Excellence Award’ is an exceptional achievement, and is testament to Trelleborg’s commitment to not only enhancing the environmental efficiencies of our operations, but continually developing innovative solutions that increase customer value.”

In combination with Trelleborg’s ISO 9001 accreditation, the company’s Environmental Management System is certified to the BS EN ISO 14001 environment management standard. It has also achieved BS OHSAS 18001, which sets out the minimum requirements for occupational health and safety management best practice.

In Liepaja, Trelleborg Wheels Systems produces rims for agricultural and forestry machinery, with sizes manufactured in the plant ranging from three to 16 inches in diameter.
