In Coldwater, Michigan, the site of the factory for Sekisui Voltek, LLC (Voltek), regional development has increased the numbers of factories, offices, housing units, and other man-made structures, which has resulted in a problem of shrinking green spaces within the community. To improve this situation, the city’s body for the provision of public services, the Coldwater Board of Public Utilities (CBPU) has decided to create new green spaces near industrial parks with the goal of beautifying the local community. Voltek is on board with this initiative, and in fiscal year 2017, 25 employees, along with staff from the CBPU, planted a total of 13 trees: six dogwoods, six crabapples, and one pine tree. Voltek will continue to contribute to the local community through environmental activities.
