RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- AMPAC Fine Chemicals LLC (AFC), a subsidiary of American Pacific Corporation (Nasdaq: APFC) announced today that it received the Environmental Responsibility and Sustainability Award at the Annual Statewide Environmental Summit, sponsored by the California Manufacturers and Technology Association (CMTA), the Industrial Environmental Association (IEA) and the Chemical Industry Council of California (CICC) held in San Diego.
