Mayor Coleman, Port Authority and Automated Logic Host Sustainability Open House for Saint Paul Businesses

SAINT PAUL – Today, Mayor Chris Coleman and other local business leaders along the Central Corridor light rail line spoke together on the merits of sustainability and the central corridor project. Louis Jambois, the president of the Saint Paul Port Authority, and Fred Meyers, the president of Automated Logic - Twin Cities, also spoke at the grand opening and ribbon-cutting for Automated Logic, a business which recently moved to Saint Paul in order to be near the Central Corridor. Automated Logic provides energy-efficient technology that simplifies building automation to businesses. “Businesses are beginning to understand that environmentally smart and energy efficient technologies aren’t just better for our environment, but can save them money. Thanks to businesses like Automated Logic and The Energy Innovation Corridor, these initiatives are coming to light,” Mayor Coleman said. “Today, we are witnessing the fruits of 30 years of discussion about joining the Twin Cities, and because of the Central Corridor, we are going to see a lot more ribbon cuttings.” “A quiet evolution has been occurring for the last several years, and this business is part of that evolution,” Louis Jambois, president of the Saint Paul Port Authority, said. “It’s all about the bottom line. Energy-efficient technology just makes fiscal sense.” Company leaders from Automated Logic shared their best practices and described projects that provide the best return on investment. “The City of Saint Paul is committed to helping businesses be as energy efficient as possible by offering a variety of tools and developing solutions to reduce energy and be mores sustainable,” Mayor Coleman added. “After 25 years of providing energy conservation solutions, we are excited to begin this next chapter in our new Saint Paul location. Strategic partnerships with community leaders continues to be vital for our success,” said Fred Meyers, president of Automated Logic - Twin Cities. Automated Logic, a leader in energy management, recently moved from Roseville to Saint Paul where they implemented a variety of sustainable initiatives into their new location in the Westgate office complex, near University Avenue. ###
