2018 North Carolina Business Conservationist of the Year
Kellex Seating has been named the North Carolina Wildlife Federation's Business Conservationist of the Year.
Kellex’s commitment to conservation can be seen daily in the use of recyclable and renewable materials throughout their manufacturing processes. They recently made a significant financial contribution to Valdese Lake Park to purchase 300 acres for a public recreational area. This, along with the volunteer efforts of their employees who spent hundreds of hours cleaning up debris, removing invasive plants, installing pollinator gardens and improving wildlife habitat on the site of the future park further declares their dedication to the local environment and beyond.
“We are very blessed, proud, and surprised to be awarded the Business Conservationist of the Year. We did not set out to win an award, as emphasizing conservation and sustainable practices are just simply the right way to do business.” Chris Rice (Kellex Co-founder & CEO)
