Success Story – IMRP

IMRPWhen Industrial Molded Rubber Products (IMRP) built their Big Lake facility in 2005 they hoped to install LED lighting, but the up-front costs were a barrier. In 2016, utilizing the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce’s Business Environmental Sustainability Grant Program and rebates from Connexus Energy, IMRP upgraded the facility’s lighting. “Because of the grant, we were able to install LEDs in the whole building, instead of just the production floor,” said Andre Nystedt, Environmental Assistant. The company expects to save $4,672 in energy costs annually, and is considering solar panels to further reduce its environmental footprint.
