Toshiba celebrates its 35th anniversary in Mitchell, SD
Toshiba demonstrates continued commitment to its community, environment and employees
Toshiba America Business Solutions today commemorates 35 years as a manufacturer and employer in Mitchell, SD by celebrating the contributions of its people and business, while supporting the local community.
Toshiba employs nearly 100 people living in the greater Mitchell area and is the world’s leading supplier of color toner for industry-recognized e-STUDIO ™ copiers. Producing over 1,200 metric tons of toner per year, the Toshiba team is focused on higher levels of quality, environmental sustainability, and occupational health and safety standards at its 25-acre Mitchell plant.
This includes meeting strict local, state and national regulatory mandates, including current ISO certifications (ISO 9001: 2015 Quality, 14001: 2015 Environment, 45001: 2018 and 45001: 2019 Health and Safety).
“Toshiba is a dedicated, active and proud member of the Mitchell community,” said Larry White, President and CEO of Toshiba America Business Solutions. “We love to celebrate the work and personal achievements of our employees, while also supporting the community through employee-led public projects that reflect Toshiba’s global focus on sustainability.
In addition to honoring many of its employees with awards and other accolades at the official celebration, Toshiba marks the occasion by dedicating two ecocentric park benches to Corn Palace Director Doug Greenway and Mitchell Area Development Corporation and to the President and CEO of the Chamber Geri Beck. The plaques on the benches indicate that they are made from eLumber which is made in part from the manufacturer’s recycled toner products.
In addition, Toshiba is preparing to dedicate a pergola covering its on-site pollinator plot in honor of the company’s most recent President and CEO, Scott Maccabe. The one acre section of land features native flowers and grasses that attract bees and pollinating butterflies. Toshiba employees at all levels and departments were involved in the creation of this project, which also serves as a biodiversity lab for local students.
Toshiba combines its local re-pollination efforts with the company’s continued commitment to the environment as well as a more sustainable earth through its green manufacturing processes, toner and product recycling efforts, and efforts to protect the earth. reforestation. Since 2008, Toshiba has eliminated 1,451 metric tonnes of electronic waste from landfills through its toner recycling efforts.
The planned 35th anniversary celebration will begin at 8 a.m. Central Daylight Time at the nearby Granite Springs Lodge Event Center in Alexandria.
