Stanley Security Solutions

Located in Indianapolis
Stanley Security Solutions, formerly known as Best Access Systems, has been in the lock manufacturing business for many years. This facility has been successful in making quality product while maintaining a safe work environment for its employees. Additionally, Stanley Security Solutions is an environmentally conscious facility that strives to conserve energy, minimize waste, and prevent pollution. 

The four businesses join 67 other Indiana facilities and companies that have joined Partners by pledging to implement pollution prevention in their operations and activities. 

The Partners organization began in 1998 and is comprised of Indiana industries, businesses, nonprofit organizations and governmental entities that are interested in pollution prevention and the financial and environmental benefits pollution prevention projects can bring. Partners hold quarterly meetings and an annual conference and trade show that provide networking opportunities and feature speakers on a variety topics, including updates on environmental regulations and pollution prevention success stories. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s (IDEM’s) Office of Pollution Prevention and Technical Assistance works closely with the Partners by coordinating the program and promoting and encouraging networking opportunities, voluntary pollution prevention activities, and participation in state recognition programs.

“Companies that implement pollution prevention measures often save money because efficiency is gained in their manufacturing processes, raw materials are saved, and less waste is generated,” said Rick Bossingham, assistant commissioner for the Office of Compliance Support at the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM). “Companies that take the Partners’ pledge promote environmental stewardship in a number of ways by involving their employees in company projects, taking part in community activities, and networking with other businesses.” 

The next Partners meeting will be held in Plainfield on September 25th and 26th at the Annual Pollution Prevention Conference.
