West Star Aviation and Teltech Group are among the Colorado companies and organizations recognized for their efforts to promote a cleaner environment.

West Star was named for a sixth consecutive year as a gold leader in the Colorado Environmental Leadership Program. Teltech Group also was selected as a gold leader.

“Contributing to the community’s ongoing environmental efforts and improvements gives our company and employees great pride knowing we are focused on growing a green company with new innovations and ideas,” said Dave Krogman, general manager of the West Star Aviation operation in Grand Junction.

Mike Meagher, president at Teltech, said environmental stewardship remains a core value for the company. “Our teams take the responsibility of living and working on this planet very seriously.”

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment bestows the designations to businesses, educational institutions, government agencies and nonprofit organizations for going beyond state and federal regulations in their commitment to continued environmental improvements.

West Star Aviation provides maintenance, repair and overhaul services at facilities at the Grand Junction Regional Airport and in six other states.

Teltech provides asset management and supply chain services to the telecommunications industry and operates a facility in Grand Junction.
