Thermocopy was featured on a WBIR-TV 10 news segment about green jobs in East Tennessee

I was surprised to receive a phone call mid-morning on Thursday from John Henry, a reporter at WBIR TV-10. He asked if I would be available to discuss the latest Brookings Institution story about the growth in “Green Jobs” in East Tennessee and how Thermocopy has helped with and benefited from promoting environmentally friendly business practices in East Tennessee. I jumped at the chance to talk about us!

Evidently the Brookings Institution has ranked Knoxville as the number one city in the nation for annual green jobs growth. They also said that Knoxville averaged a 14.6% green job increase from 2003 to 2010.  According to the report, in 2003, Knoxville had a little more than 6,000 clean economy jobs.  In 2010 that same report said it had more than 16,000.

It evidently took a lot of film to get enough usable material for my piece of the story as we discussed a number of issues, but ended up with the 15 to 20 second segment, LOL. I was pleasantly surprised when I viewed the finished story and saw Thermocopy prominently displayed in a good light. Of course, it would have been even better if my comments about our Printworks program would have made the segment. It is nice to see the news organizations recognizing Thermocopy as a leader in promoting environmentally sound business practices and being a “go to” source for information.
