On March 15, 2012, Air King‘s accomplishments were recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., which also marked the 20th anniversary of Energy Star. Winners were selected from approximately 20,000 organizations which participate in the Energy Star program.
“As we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Energy Star program, EPA is proud to recognize Air King with the 2012 Energy Star Partner of the Year – Product Manufacturer Award,” said EPA administrator Lisa P.
