Waste industry veteran Danny Ardellini of Almada Inc. and National Hockey League (NHL) legend Paul Coffey announced the launch of Environmental 360 Solutions Inc. (E360S), a new environmental waste management company.
E360S has acquired Can Pak Environmental Inc., a central Alberta, Canada-based family-operated business serving residential, commercial and industrial properties, from Mark Pedersen, its owner and president. With operations in Red Deer, Medicine Hat, Beaumont, Drayton Valley, Edson, Edmonton and Calgary, E360S now has nearly 100 employees, more than 35 trucks and two recycling facilities, servicing more than 150,000 customers weekly.
"I would like to welcome Mark, his family and the employees at Can Pak to the E360S team. We have the operational expertise, commitment and capitalization to build a significant player in the North American environmental waste management industry," said Ardellini, president and CEO of Environmental 360 Solutions Inc., in a statement. "We will be pursuing other acquisitions and organic growth opportunities to grow our business and become the trusted environmental management leader."
"My family and the team at Can Pak are thrilled to be joining E360S and look forward to helping build the company," said Pedersen in a statement. "With the additional capital from E360S, we can realize our shared vision of providing safe, excellent customer service, while protecting the environment of the communities we serve.
"Danny Ardellini, Alon Ossip, Martin Golfarb and I are incredibly bullish on this sector," stated Coffey, a four-time Stanley Cup champion and three-time Norris Trophy winner, who, along with Dave Gurney and Jason Claxton, is investing in E360S. "Everyone at E360S and Almada understands teamwork, hard work, passion and consistent performance. I'm looking forward to working with another championship team, with such strong Alberta roots."
