According to Madico Director of Sales and Marketing Tom Niziolek, the NFRC certification is the latest example of the company’s commitment to responsible environmental policies and ethical marketing practices.“This unprecedented 45-product certification reinforces two of Madico’s most important strategic platforms, namely innovating solutions that reduce energy consumption and articulating product performance in a factual, verifiable manner. We are proud not only that so many of our products received this crucial certification, but also that our dedication to open, honest communication has been validated by such a prestigious organization.”
