NEW YORK - The Linc Group, an ABM Industries company, announced that it has been presented with the 2011 Green Award from the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) Orange County Chapter at the 16th Annual ACG Awards Event, held in Newport Beach, Calif.

The Linc Group provides end-to-end integrated facility services to help improve operating efficiencies, reduce energy consumption, and lower overall operational costs of critical facilities, installations, and buildings in the government, commercial, and residential markets. Linc was acquired by ABM Industries on Dec. 1, 2010.

“We were delighted that our focus on delivering sustainable services to so many of our clients has been recognized - especially when that recognition comes in the form of such a prestigious award from the Association for Corporate Growth,” said Tracy K. Price, Linc Group CEO and chairman, and now ABM Industries executive vice president.

The Linc Group was one of five Orange Country-based companies to take home an Association for Corporate Growth Award. ACG’s award selection committee chose the winners from more than 100 nominations.

Cary Booth Kaufman, ACG Awards Event chairperson and vice president of Madison Square Partners said, “The Linc Group epitomizes the corporate growth that ACG Orange County was founded upon, and this successful Orange County business will grow even stronger with the acquisition by ABM. The Linc Group also shines as the winner of our Green Award, which honors a company that has done something unique in a product or service that benefits our environment. The Linc Group’s consistent innovation in energy reduction and commitment to ‘Green and Clean’ initiatives made the company a wonderful choice for this year’s winner.”

Price said the business will continue to grow its sustainability offerings. “We are deeply committed to the green and sustainable building market, an area where we see enormous opportunity,” he said. “This year we will be expanding our bundled energy solutions and continuing to develop energy-related technology innovations, always with a focus on cost effective solutions that enable our clients to reduce their operating expenses. We also expect to see continued expansion in GreenHomes® America, our home performance contracting business that helps residential customers reduce energy consumption and costs.”
