St. Louis, November 16, 2010 — NORDYNE takes safety seriously. It’s been nearly 6 years and 4 million hours worked since the NORDYNE manufacturing plant in Boonville, Mo. has experienced an injury that resulted in lost time. The company’s sister operation in Tipton, Mo. has an equally impressive safety record – nearly 12 years and 2 million hours worked without lost time.
NORDYNE celebrated the combined 6 million hours on November 9 with an employee luncheon. Michael Nix, NORDYNE vice president of operations, congratulated his team on their continued commitment to safety.

Achievements like this only happen when everyone shares the same goal.”
