Gemini Incorporated Re-Certified for Green Star Facility Award

Cannon Falls, MN — Gemini Incorporated has received re-certification for the Minnesota Green Star Facility Award from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. The Green Star Award is given to a select group of manufacturers with recognition for their stewardship in recycling efforts, managing waste streams, and protection of human health and the environment.

The award was given following an audit of Gemini’s manufacturing facilities in Cannon Falls, Minnesota acknowledging compliance with all applicable environmental requirements. Gemini Incorporated is a world leader in the manufacture of dimensional letters, logos and plaques for the sign industry

“Receiving the Minnesota Green Star award vividly shows that Gemini Incorporated recognizes and manages its facilities and resources with care for the community, its citizens and the environment as a whole,” stated Jet Tran, the company’s Safety and Environmental Officer. “Our employees share in this important accomplishment and for that we are very proud.”

According to Gemini President Fred Oss, the award is interesting because it honors the company for doing things it would be doing regardless of the award. He said Gemini evaluates many new techniques each year in an effort to improve manufacturing processes and minimize its impact on the planet.

“The Green Star award shows that we are manufacturing in a manner that measures and controls our waste stream so we have a minimal impact on the environment,” Oss said. “This is good for our local neighborhoods, our facilities, and our costs.”

Gemini Incorporated’s Cannon Falls facilities produce formed plastic letters and architectural & etched plaques. Gemini formed products are made of cotton and wood fibers that are non-petroleum-based and are completely recyclable. Gemini architectural plaques are made of bronze or aluminum, and etched plaques are made from brass, bronze, copper and stainless steel. The Cannon Falls facility first received Green Star status in June of 2008.

Gemini Incorporated began operations in 1963. Today, the company has manufacturing plants in Minnesota, Iowa, Texas, Nevada, Virginia, Canada and Mexico.
