US Ecology and NRC Group agree to merge, expanding leadership in specialty and industrial waste services
On June 24th, US Ecology, Inc. announced that it has entered into a definitive merger agreement with NRC Group Holdings Corp., a national leader in comprehensive environmental, compliance and waste management services to the marine and rail transportation, general industrial and energy industries.
“The addition of NRCG’s substantial service network strengthens and expands US Ecology’s suite of environmental services,” said Jeffrey R. Feeler, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of US Ecology. “This transaction will establish US Ecology as a leader in standby and emergency response services and adds a new waste vertical in oil and gas exploration and production landfill disposal to further drive waste volumes throughout the Gulf region.”
NRCG is one of two leading national Oil Spill Removal Organizations (“OSRO”) that provide mandated standby emergency response for the transportation of oil products. With more than 50 service centers, NRCG has a national service network providing emergency and spill response, light industrial services, hazardous and industrial waste management and transportation services.
