AmSty Receives CSX Chemical Safety Excellence Award
The Woodlands, Texas – May 5, 2015 – Railroad transportation services company CSX has awarded AmSty a Chemical Safety Excellence award, recognizing the company for its commitment to safe transportation of chemicals by rail. AmSty became eligible for the award by shipping more than 600 carloads of chemicals during the 2014 calendar year without a chemical release due to controllable factors.
“Safe transportation of our materials is paramount in the AmSty supply chain,” said Bill Griebel, Director – Supply Chain. “This award is a positive reminder for us to keep a safety-first mindset in everything we do.”
AmSty has received a number of safety awards in recent years. The company was named Best in Louisiana by the Louisiana Chemical Association for excellent safety performance at its St. James Styrene Monomer Plant, and its Joliet Plant in Illinois was recognized for its injury-free performance by the Three Rivers Manufacturers Association. The St. James and Joliet plants have reached four and five year anniversaries with no recordable injuries. The company’s polystyrene plant in Cartagena, Colombia has achieved six years with no recordable injuries.
