Over the past decade, Apex Tool Group (formerly Cooper Tools) has partnered with Parklands Albury Wodonga to support a range of Murray River parkland projects.
Cooper Tools Albury Wodonga plant won the silver award in the Cooper Industries Worldwide 2002 Environmental Excellence Awards, from 52 other projects nominated from the company’s 130 facilities worldwide.
The plant received the award for re-engineering its manufacturing of Lufkin measuring tapes to substantially improve its impact on the environment. In turn the facility donated the award prize to fund ongoing works at Padman-Mates Park, including an interpretive signage shelter.
Apex Tool Group has a long history of innovation in the industry for energy saving and waste reduction. Its commitment to the environment is also demonstrated through sponsorship of a number of parkland projects, including projects at the popular Waterworks Reserve and Padman-Mates Park.
Apex Tool Group strives to be a preferred employer and support the communities in which it operates. It is a company based on the values of honesty and integrity. As such, the business sponsors several charitable organisations and encourages its 100 plus Albury Wodonga employees to volunteer in a wide range of community-based programs.
The Parklands Albury Wodonga projects Apex Tools has sponsored are on well utilised sections of the Murray River Parklands near its South Albury plant, which employees access for recreation.
