Brewer Science Limited Plants Trees as Part of Its 20th Anniversary Celebration
September 21, 2012 – Brewer Science, Inc., the inventor of original solutions for the world’s leading manufacturers of computer chips, sensors, MEMS, LEDs, displays and other microelectronic devices, is pleased to announce the 20th anniversary of its European hub, Brewer Science Limited, which will relocate later this year to the historic Darley Abbey Mills, part of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site in Derbyshire, United Kingdom.
This milestone will be shared with Brewer Science’s customers and the community through a series of special activities and events that will continue throughout 2012. Previous activities have included sponsoring the Darley Park Concert held in June, which was part of the Olympic Torch Relay. Brewer Science will host special gatherings at selected industry events to demonstrate appreciation for its customers and its continued support for their long-term success.
Brewer Science will create an avenue of trees along the eastern approach to the Mills in Darley Abbey by planting 20 trees to mark its 20th anniversary. The trees will be planted on land owned by Derby Rugby Football Club on Haslams Lane and will add to the beauty of the area and symbolize our commitment to the environment. The tree planting has been made possible with the support of Million Trees Derbyshire (MTD), a not-for-profit organization with the ultimate aim of planting a million trees in Derbyshire, and The Big Tree Plant, a government-led initiative to plant more trees in England’s urban areas.
“It is fantastic that we have been able to work with Brewer Science and Derby Rugby Club to make the local environment even better and to see Brewer Science employees from all over the world involved in actually planting the trees,” said Anthony Broderick, the local businessman who established MTD. The tree planting will take place on Monday, 24th September 2012, and will include 15 Brewer Science employees representing its offices around the world including the UK, France, Germany, and the USA. Representatives from MTD will be on hand to offer guidance and advice throughout the event.
The event will include a photo opportunity on site at 4:45 pm.
