Valicor Environmental Services, one of North America’s largest providers of non-hazardous wastewater treatment services, has expanded its network of wastewater processing facilities through the acquisition of Action Environmental.
Action operates a centralized wastewater treatment (CWT) facility in Fort Wayne, Ind. The acquisition will enable Valicor to enhance its existing Midwest footprint and strengthen its position in the region.
“We are excited to expand Valicor’s leading network into Indiana and are fortunate to welcome Ed and the Action team to the Valicor family,” said Bill Hinton, Valicor’s chief commercial officer, in a statement. “Action complements our strong existing Midwest footprint and adds capabilities that will enable us to better serve customers in a new geography.”
Including the Action acquisition, Valicor has increased its number of centralized wastewater treatment plants from five to 13 in just over 24 months as it focuses on growing its national footprint.
“We are thrilled to partner with Valicor as their culture, scale and service capabilities will allow Action to accelerate the growth potential of our facility and better serve our customers,” said Edward Black, owner and president of Action, in a statement. “I have been continually impressed by Valicor’s deep understanding of the industry, our operations and our valued customers.”
Valicor is owned by Pritzker Private Capital, which partnered with management in July 2019. Valicor’s acquisition strategy focuses on acquiring operators of CWT facilities as well as other providers of waste management and environmental services, including materials recycling, used oil processing, product destruction, landfill solidification and related services.
“Action increases Valicor’s scale and processing capabilities in an adjacent geography,” said Ryan Roberts, investment partner with Pritzker Private Capital, in a statement. “We continue to enthusiastically support Bill and the rest of the Valicor team as they expand Valicor’s national network and service offering to better serve its customers.”
