North American wastewater treatment services provider Valicor Environmental Services has expanded its network of wastewater processing facilities by acquiring Strength Environmental.

Strength Environmental operates centralised wastewater treatment (CWT) facility in Inkster, Michigan. The deal will enable Valicor to strengthen its existing Midwest footprint and position as a major wastewater treatment provider in the region.

Valicor Environmental Services CEO James Devlin said: “We are very excited to expand Valicor’s leading network into Michigan. Valicor continues to expand into additional geographies in order to better serve both new and existing customers.

“Strength will play a key role in enhancing our offerings of wastewater and other environmental services and we are thrilled about this addition to the Valicor family.”

Valicor significantly added wastewater treatment plants

As Valicor focuses on growing its national footprint, the acquisition of Strength takes the number of centralised wastewater treatment plants of the company from five to 14 in 24 months.

Last month, the environmental services provider acquired Action Environmental that operates a centralised wastewater treatment facility in in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  In July, the company expanded its network through the acquisition of River Green.

Strength Environmental owner and president Steve DiMaggio said: “We were very selective to partner with an organization that shares the same appreciation for customers, compliance and employees.

“We are particularly excited about Valicor’s proven ability to support and scale-up businesses to enable them to provide even greater value to our customers and opportunities for our employees, while remaining laser focused on environmental protection.”

Owned by Pritzker Private Capital, Valicor focuses on acquiring operators of CWT facilities as well as other providers of waste management and environmental services, including materials recycling, used oil processing, product destruction, landfill solidification, and related services.

Pritzker Private Capital investment partner Ryan Roberts said: “With the Strength acquisition, Valicor will be able to further penetrate a strategic adjacent market and enhance our service offering. We continue to enthusiastically support James and the rest of the Valicor team as they expand Valicor’s national network and service offering to better serve its customers.”
