MTS Turns Re-Upholstery 'Green' for Waverly Renaissance Hotel

Wednesday, 20 May 2009 17:13


 
MTS Seating was able to divert nearly 2 tons of waste from the landfill during a re-upholstery project at the historic Waverly Renaissance Hotel in downtown Atlanta. MTS Seating – a leading manufacturer of hospitality and banquet furniture – had been specified to re-upholster the 2,000 banquet chairs at the hotel. In order to turn the project 'green,'  Jennifer White, Sustainability Coordinator for MTS contacted True Textiles, a leading manufacturer of sustainable textiles, who also worked with Leigh Fibers, a foam, fabric, and fiber recycler and Univar USA, a waste-to-energy company. The chairs were disassembled on site and the materials were then separated and dispersed (pictured above) for recycling.  MTS diverted 100 percent of the waste materials from landfills and provide re-upholstered chairs to the Waverly Renaissance. “We try to incorporate environmentally friendly practices into everything we do,” said Phil Swy, MTS, CEO. “We wanted to extend that philosophy into the field work we do as well, and to encourage our partners to help look for innovative ways to do so.”
