Addition of Three Facilities Enhances EQ’s Leadership in Waste Treatment Services
Wayne, Mich. – EQ – The Environmental Quality Company today announced that the company has acquired Envirite. This includes all waste treatment, transportation, service and recycling operations at Envirite of Ohio (Canton), Envirite of Illinois (Harvey) and Envirite of Pennsylvania (York). With the addition of Envirite, EQ becomes a nationwide leader in waste treatment services.
“Envirite’s waste treatment and service capabilities integrated into EQ’s extensive facilities and services network will allow us to provide treatment and service capability closer to our customers in three strategic industrial markets,” stated David Lusk, President and CEO of EQ. “The addition of the three Envirite facilities enhances our leadership position in waste treatment services. Most importantly, we’ve been impressed by the dedication to quality and customer service demonstrated by all Envirite associates. With this addition, we now have over 800 of the industry’s most technically trained associates prepared to meet our customers’ environmental service needs.”
Like EQ, Envirite has a long history of servicing the environmental industry. With over 35 years of experience, Envirite specializes in the treatment and recycling of metal bearing liquids and solids. This includes contaminated solids, debris, liquid and dry waste recovery. Services provided by Envirite include inorganic solid and liquid waste treatment, transportation services, drum waste management, metals recycling, technical services and remediation services. Envirite also possesses a unique federal delisting certification at its three facilities. This delisting is the result of demonstration to the EPA that Envirite’s proprietary treatment process converts fifteen types of listed inorganic waste into non-hazardous residues.
“We are excited to partner with EQ’s management team and build on the success the company has achieved,” said Tom Yablonski, President of Envirite. “This will allow us to provide additional environmental service opportunities and benefits to our current customers.” The current Envirite principals have agreed to join the EQ management team.
