I am extremely pleased and excited to announce the acquisition and integration of GEM Mobile Treatment Services to the Evergreen Team. GEM is the industry leader in providing engineered solutions for the vapor control and waste water treatment market. GEM provides processing and treatment technologies either on a mobile or fixed basis to solve routine or complex treatment projects. Evergreen welcomes the entire GEM team including the two original founders of the company, Paul Anderson and John Beale. We are very excited to have Paul and John join Evergreen and think they will both be great additions to the team and assist in our next phase of growth. We believe that the values and culture of GEM are remarkably consistent with those of Evergreen, and that the experience and customer relationships fit very well with our business philosophy.
GEM will operate as an additional service line providing special services that meet or exceed our industry standard; these services are essential to Evergreen’s continued growth and future success. The acquisition of GEM will help Evergreen continue its objective; to seek out companies that provide high quality specialty services in our industry. In addition to GEM’s special capabilities we will also be adding a significant amount of revenue and many new, high quality clients. Together we will be able to interface and serve our customers with a far broader range of coordinated services than ever before.
GEM provides technology, human capital, resources and engineered solutions that are far superior to our competition. Their broad range of Thermal Oxidation, Vapor Scrubbing, Water Treatment, and state-of-the-art engineering services will allow Evergreen to expand into other markets . In addition, GEM will be bringing six locations that will expand our current operating footprint including offices in Southern & Northern California, Texas, Louisiana, and Delaware. GEM has been providing mobile and fixed treatment systems to private industry and the public sector since 1994. Their one-of-a-kind complex problem solving and engineering capabilities will provide Evergreen with another niche in the Industrial Services market.
GEM’s original founders Paul Anderson, John Beale and their team should blend seamlessly into the existing Evergreen culture. Their service oriented and customer focused nature are a perfect fit for achieving both companies’ goals to expand our business both functionally and geographically.
Paul is the founder of GEM which he started in 1994. He currently oversees the operations, safety, compliance, and engineering departments of the company. Paul is a recognized nation-wide expert in vapor combustion and has presented at numerous technical conferences on tank degassing and vapor control as well as worked with air regulatory groups to develop regulations and best practices. He is a member of the US Coast Guard Chemical Transportation Advisory Committee (CTAC) which is chartered with developing regulations governing the movement of hazardous products over the nation’s waterways. Paul holds a BS in Chemical Engineering from Oregon State University.
John Beale brings over 30 years of environmental services experience with a focus on business development and customer satisfaction. He has held various middle and senior management positions for regional and national environmental service providers. He brings experience in recruiting corporate and field sales staffs and developing systems, processes and procedures for efficient sales management with a focus on establishing performance objectives and metrics tracking for driving company growth. John holds a BS in Organizational Behavior from Babson College, Wellesley, Mass.
Thank you for your support and cooperation in helping Evergreen benefit from these new and exciting capabilities. I look forward to the future and Evergreen's/GEM's objective to be the best in industry by providing safe best-in-class services to our clients that meet and exceed expectations.
