- Environmental service group ET Environmental Corp. LLC has partnered with global waste management company WIH Resource Group, along with 14 offices across the U.S. and Canada, to provide more comprehensive services than their target market typically manages in-house. These include project feasibility analysis and return on investment, engineering design, procurement, construction management and operations, and maintenance.
- Through its design/build service model, ET Environmental has in-house professionals that create alternative fueling infrastructure and maintenance facilities. ET also specializes in solid waste management to include supporting transfer stations, material recycling facilities, landfill projects, environmental remediation and decontamination, landfill gas to energy, leachate treatment and rail haul infrastructure.
- WIH Resource Group’s niche is integrated waste management, recycling, mergers and acquisitions, logistics, technology, expert witness, facility valuation, business development and transportation solutions.
To keep up with the ever-evolving waste management niche through challenges from increased government scrutiny, solid waste management leaders seek new or upgraded business models. Some progressive owners and operators have shifted the structure of waste management to keep up with changing cultures. Companies are adding on services, sometimes that few in the industry will tackle, in order to boost profits. Some have made huge investments to survive, and then keep growing.
Partnerships are among the arsenal of business strategies of companies striving to stay ahead of the curve.
"The combination of ET Environmental’s engineering expertise, depth of experience and technical knowledge, coupled with WIH Resource Group’s waste management, recycling, operational, transportation and financial analytical capabilities makes for a powerful combination," said Bob Wallace, principal and vice president of client solutions for WIH Resource Group, in a press release.
Wallace adds, "This partnership will benefit both public and private sector waste and recycling management organizations and companies throughout North America."
ET Environmental President and CEO Bill Higginbotham said, "ET Environmental and WIH Resource Group have similar cultures with separate and distinct service strengths. Our partnership creates a strategic approach that combines those strengths into a sum that’s greater than the separate parts."
