UAP Southeast - Madison, AL

For Greg Esco, location manager at United Agri Products (UAP) Southeast in Madison, AL, stewardship is more than just a buzzword. The entire 2.5-acre facility is surrounded by a berm that can keep practically any amount of contaminated water from escaping if need be. One of the plant's Bobcats can simply pile dirt across the facility's two driveways, a process requiring only minutes.

"I feel really fortunate to be part of an operation like this," he says.
