The Tyco International de Mexico manufacturing facility has achieved ISO 50001:2011 certification, according to the company.
The certification was a result of the company’s development of an energy management system, according to the release. ISO 500001 is a global standard for a framework aimed at more responsible energy management. The plant, which is in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico produces anti-theft, security and fire protection equipment.
The facility was built with recycled materials, has solar panels, LED lighting, thermal reflective building coating and water efficiency devices. These tools have enabled a 47 percent improvement in energy efficiency over the past two and a half years.
