LAKE MARY, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Iberdrola Mexico presented MHPS Americas an Award for Outstanding Equipment Provider at an event held in Mexico City on Oct. 18. The ceremony was attended by industry executives, managers and key employees of Iberdrola Mexico and more than a hundred guests.
The Iberdrola Outstanding Equipment Provider Award was presented by Iberdrola Mexico CEO Enrique Alba and Chairman Sergio Alcocer to MHPS Americas President and CEO Paul Browning. The award recognizes Iberdrola business partners for quality, innovation, job creation, respect for the environment, job safety, ethics, values and transparency. Iberdrola, which holds a similar program annually in Spain, extended the recognition program abroad to Mexico in 2016 to reiterate its commitment to economic and social development of the communities where it operates.

Our two organizations share a common philosophy when it comes to quality, innovation and outstanding corporate citizenship, so this recognition is truly an honor.”
