Axcelis Selected For Excellence In Commuter Options Award

BEVERLY, Mass., April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Axcelis Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: ACLS), a leading supplier of innovative, high-productivity solutions for the semiconductor industry, has been recognized with a Spotlight Award for its bicycle commuting program at  the Excellence in Commuter Options (ECO) awards, held in Boston at Fenway Park, on March 28th.  The annual ECO awards honor Massachusetts employers and their efforts to reduce congestion and greenhouse gas emissions by encouraging employees to utilize green transportation options like walking, cycling, carpools and mass transit.  In addition to the Spotlight Award, Axcelis was recognized with a Leadership ECO Award for the third straight year.

Director of Environmental Health and Safety, Steve Roberge accepted the award on the company's behalf.  He commented, "We're honored to receive this award.  Axcelis is committed to providing green, sustainable transportation options for our employees, to keep our employees healthy and lessen our environmental impact.  Axcelis considers promotion of cycling as an important component of its ISO 14001 certified Environmental Management System and its goal to reduce its overall carbon footprint form both direct and indirect sources of carbon emissions."

The Company actively promotes bicycling to work and provides many incentives and promotional programs for employees.  These include secure, covered parking facilities, showers and locker rooms, discounts on biking gear, training in bicycle safety and maintenance, and participation in Bike to Work Week, and Car Free Week. To demonstrate the efficacy of biking, the company also sponsored two Bike vs. Car commute races last year.  Axcelis is also a member of the North Shore Transportation Management Association, allowing employees access to a variety of commuter services and incentives including personalized research, Ridematching, Green to Work incentive program, Guaranteed Ride Home Program, and reduced ZipCar membership fees.
