The environmental firm Tradebe Group continues its expansion in the US market
Pollution Control Industries (PCI), based in East Chicago (Indiana) is now part of Tradebe, following the completion of the process of acquisition last month. PCI manages hazardous and non hazardous waste through three fully-permitted Part B “RCRA” treatment, storage and disposal facilities in Indiana, Tennessee and South Carolina. It serves many industries, among them the Chemical (including pharmaceutical, petrochemical, Paint and coatings and Plastics) and Printing markets. PCI has 370 employees and an annual turnover of $65 million dollars.
TRADEBE GROUP is one of the largest privately-held waste management companies in Spain. The Group currently has global sales of over $230 million and 700 employees. Tradebe operates 20 hazardous and non-hazardous waste treatment facilities in Spain, UK, France and the USA.
With the acquisition of PCI, Tradebe reinforces its investments and development in the US market, where it already controls two other companies. One of them, Petrochemical Services Inc. (PSI), provides waste processing, tank cleaning and gas-freeing services to the refining, chemical, pulp and paper industries. It currently has operations in New Orleans, Houston, Honolulu, Richmond, Va., and El Segundo, California. The second one, Recovery Recycling Solutions (RRS) is located in Houston, Texas. It offers cleaning services for crude oil tanks and treatment of refinery sludge for clients such as Phillips (Bayway refinery, New Jersey) and other refineries in Louisiana and Texas.
The group of companies will operate under the umbrella of the holding co. Tradebe Environmental Services.
