Colorado Contractor Finalist For ‘Green’ Award
American Plumbing Heating and Solar, Inc. of Edwards, Colo., is one of three finalists for the 2016 Success Awards. The 14th Annual Success Awards recognize businesses that have excelled over the past year and acknowledges their hard work and dedication as the best in the Vail Valley.
APHS is nominated in the Actively Green category that is awarded to a local business for promoting a community culture of sustainability. APHS may be the first and only plumbing business certified Actively Green in the world. The winner will be announced at a community luncheon on May 12th.
“Growing up in Turkey, learning my trade in Europe, and then moving to the United States, has been a rewarding experience,” said owner Mustafa Aydin. “I love my adopted country, thus the name of my business – American! I have grown as a person as my business has grown. One direction that I have brought forth from my home is the introduction of water and energy saving products for the customers I service. I believe we owe it to our children and our planet to be as efficient as possible, and a plumber has a responsibility to help.”
Success Awards are presented by the Vail Valley Partnership, the regional chamber of commerce for the Vail, Eagle County mountain resort community. For the past fourteen years, the Vail Valley Partnership has had the honor of recognizing businesses, non-profits and individuals who have helped make the Vail Valley and Eagle County a dynamic and diverse business community.
The Success Awards are given for business achievement, business growth and community involvement. APHS was one among seventeen nominees in their category and is now one of three finalists.
