Houston-based Stella Environmental Holdings, Inc., a Hidden Harbor Capital Partners portfolio company that provides transfer station management and municipal waste logistics services, announced the purchase of Jack Herod Trucking, LLC, expanding its geographic footprint, diversifying its customer base and strengthening its existing facility management, hauling and loading capabilities.
Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Jack Herod is a provider of transfer station management and ancillary waste logistics services in the Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) market. Jack Herod will provide significant density to Stella’s existing network in DFW, according to Stella Environmental.
“This acquisition strengthens our position in the transfer station management industry by expanding our reach and deepening our capabilities. Jack Herod is an ideal fit with Stella given its long-tenured customer relationships and service-oriented culture,” said Heath Eddleblute, CEO of Stella, in a statement.
