Kaplow recently organized a corporate social responsibility event at Timex Group’s headquarters in Middlebury, CT, to celebrate the completion of the state’s largest, ground-mounted solar electric installation. This installation – one of the largest in the entire northeastern United States – represents the global company’s commitment to corporate responsibility. Timex Group President & Chief Executive Officer Hans-Kristian Hoejsgaard was joined by federal, state and local politicians including State Senators Joan Hartley and Robert J. Kane, among many other officials. This installation of 800 solar panels will enable the company headquarters to avoid over 6.6 million pounds of carbon dioxide, 28,000 pounds of sulfur dioxide and 11,000 pounds of nitrogen oxide over the 25-year life of the system.
