EQCC Award Presentation to PWT

Mr. Bill Pancake of Pacific Western Technologies, Ltd and Colonel John D. Keenan, Deputy Garrison Commander at Fort Carson, Colorado

Award for Excellence presentation made to Mr. Bill Pancake of Pacific Western Technologies, Ltd by Colonel John D. Keenan, Deputy Garrison Commander at Fort Carson, Colorado on Thursday, April 19, 2012 at the Environmental Quality Control Committee quarterly meeting.

“Mr. John William (Bill) Pancake of PWT, Ltd. had just taken over as the new Facility Manager of the HMCC. He had several tasks ahead of him to become compliant with Federal and Local environmental regulations.
These tasks would normally require numerous funds to accomplish however, Mr. Pancake accomplished this through a total revamping of his supply warehouse and system of conducting business.
Within 60 days, Mr. Pancake was able to become completely compliant with the required Federal and Local regulations without the use of any additional funds.
Soldiers have been immensely satisfied with the better customer service and layout of the establishment. His actions have reduced the wait time for units picking up products, reduced the imminent environmental impacts in case of a spill, and created a sustainable workable environment for his employees. He has also become more accountable for the products in stock and free issue.
He has shown that a business can operate successfully, when done right the first time”.
Mr. Brad Camp, Directorate of Public Works, Environmental Division Support Branch Chief, Fort Carson, Colorado
