[Narrator]
Emerald Textiles For this San Diego-based healthcare
linen provider, building a highly automated facility in a short time frame took
teamwork and the right approach. [Jim Hernandez]
It was very important that all the key players
involved were all involved right from the get-go. And it was very important to us that SDG&E
was involved with us right from the start. We let them in on what we were doing right at
the beginning so we could get the paperwork all in order and get everything rolling. As we were laying out the plan of getting the
plant together, they were right there with us, and were able to, in a quick, timely
fashion, get our rebates in, get all the information they needed so they could get
all the studies done and figure out exactly what it would take to get the plant rolling. Because we were in a very quick timeline
to get the plant up and running. [Narrator]
As a result of this effective planning
and sustained follow through, Emerald Textiles found creating an energy efficient, green
facility a smart and competitive business move. [Tom Gildred]
Our key differentiator is our facility. And it’s the investment that we’ve made in the facility. Our equipment is state of the art, and it’s
all from the ground up, we’re brand new. And so, we have the benefit of going out
and identifying the most energy efficient processes and equipment available. From a business standpoint, by making the
investments in the energy efficient equipment, it’s actually making us more competitive to the
different health care systems out there. They care that we are going to be using less energy,
long-term, going to be able to control our costs. And it’s important to them from an
environmental sustainability standpoint. We think that that is going to help
us to win in the long run. [Narrator]
