ROCKVILLE, Md. - During his 30-minute infomercial last week, presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama recognized Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) member McKinstry Co., Seattle, for its commitment to sustainable design/build practices and promoting an energy efficient America.

“Recently, I visited the McKinstry Company in Seattle,” stated Obama. “They’re retrofitting schools and office buildings to make them energy efficient, creating jobs, saving their customers money, reducing carbon emissions, and helping end our dependency on Middle Eastern oil. As president, I’ll use companies like McKinstry as a model for the nation.”

MCAA noted that McKinstry projects across the nation have eliminated 247,025 metric tons of CO2 emissions since 2001. McKinstry CEO Dean Allen said, “This national recognition validates the great work we do here at McKinstry. We take great pride in our contributions as a leader in the green economy and our efforts to have a positive impact on the environment.”

To view Allen’s interview with Fox Business News about the company, see the video “McKinstry in Spotlight” at www.foxbusiness.com/video/index.html.
