LACONIA — Irwin Automotive has taken steps toward making their sales area more ecologically friendly. The company says this move is consistent with its efforts to be more aware of energy efficiency, both in terms of the cars they sell as well as the area where they work.
A recent renovation, which included complete paving of the facility and all new lighting fixtures, emphasizes their "green" ideas. GMI Asphalt of Belmont and Liberty Electric of Salem provided their services for this updating and were extremely efficient and helpful and great to work with. The new lights are LED, utilizing the most up to date and efficient technology on the market. These new lights are using a fifth of the energy the previous lights used.
Irwin Automotive sees the importance in protecting the environment and therefore sells very fuel efficient, ecological vehicles that are conducive to the needs of the environment.
