Brady Industries recently broke ground on their new distribution facility in Salt Lake City, Utah.  Brady is pursuing LEED for New Construction certification.  Some of the features of the new facility will employ energy efficient lighting, the use of recycled materials for building materials, and use of natural lighting throughout the facility.  The company is also planning on implementing efforts to give employees alternative transportation to and from work.

The new facility falls right in line with the company’s commitment to Sustainability.  The company also has an extensive “GoGreen” sustainability program within their jan/san offering.  In an effort to help customers become more environmentally friendly, the company has pioneered a green cleaning partnership named “GoGreen.”  The program provides customers with a sustainable business strategy promoting a positive impact on the environment.  Going beyond providing green cleaning products, Brady’s program helps customers reuse products where appropriate, recycle when possible, and most importantly, reduces usage by the selection of proper products and procedures.

Once the building is complete, Travis Brady says he’s hopeful that the push towards LEED in other locations will follow.  “We anticipate outgrowing some of our other facilities and looking then to build new facilities in a number of our markets in the upcoming years.  We intend to pattern those after the Salt Lake City building,” he says.  The new building will be located at 5655 W 300S, Salt Lake City, Utah 84104
