EnviroSolutions Inc. (ESI) has purchased Sajo Transport Inc. for an undisclosed amount, completing the second phase in its acquisition of Pittsburgh-based Environmental Logistics Services’ (ELS) New Jersey waste processing and rail operations.
Sajo, based in Kearny, N.J., operates the largest permitted solid waste transfer station in New Jersey through a long-term operating agreement with the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission, according to a news release. The facility, located in North Arlington, N.J., is currently permitted for 2,750 tons per day.
The Sajo operations being acquired have total annualized revenues of about $10 million, adding to the Manassas, Va.-based ESI’s presence as one of the largest regional waste companies in the northeastern United States.
"Our acquisition of ELS’ Sajo transfer station assets represents another strategic growth opportunity within the greater New York City and northern New Jersey waste-shed, providing us the opportunity to drive additional waste volumes through our waste-by-rail network and improve profitability through increased internalization of waste streams," said Eric Wallace, ESI president and CEO.
The deal marks EnviroSolutions’ second acquisition in the greater New York market in the last two months, following the acquisition of ELS’s New Jersey Rail Carriers LLC (NJRC) waste-by-rail transload and intermodal facility operations, located in Kearny, NJ.
ESI provides solid waste collection, transfer, disposal and recycling services to commercial and industrial customers in 10 states in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast United States.
