Wallingford, Conn. (June 15, 2017) – On behalf of allnex-Wallingford, Site Manager Frank DiCristina recently accepted the Shining Star Excellence in Business Award from the Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce at its annual meeting. Formed over 100 years ago, the chamber brings together businesses in Wallingford and North Haven, CT.

“We are honored to have received this award from the Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce,” DiCristina said. “We couldn’t be happier to be a member of a Chamber that is so supportive of local businesses and the community at large.”

Specifically noted in the nomination were allnex initiatives and accomplishments such as its commitment to community, environmental improvements to the Wallingford site, and innovative solutions to, over a four-year period, reduce the toxic release inventory emissions (TRI) by 80%.

Prior to being presented the award, the audience learned about allnex and its Wallingford facility, which began operations on December 8, 1941. The company recently celebrated 75 years of continuous operations and boasts a workforce of 120 full-time employees.
