AGAWAM, Mass., June 4, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Environmental Compliance Services, Inc. (ECS) announced today the completion of the acquisition of the corporate assets and remarkable human talent of Pangean-CMD Associates, Inc. (PCMD) of Woodstock, Ga. This acquisition, the largest in ECS' 32-year history, will drive ECS' evolution by expanding the market areas the company serves into Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Colorado, and Utah. In addition, it will also expand the existing company capabilities in the Carolinas, Florida and Ohio.

"This acquisition now means that ECS has a national presence that combines senior think-tank engineering with self-performed field services throughout the petroleum, building sciences, and due diligence market sectors," said Mark Hellstein, ECS CEO and Founder. "With the addition of the passionate team from Pangean-CMD, we are better positioned to service the upstream petroleum market."

Kevin Sheehan, ECS COO, added, "This acquisition will also provide professional growth and opportunity to employees as well as an effective tool to recruit new talented staff."

ECS is now one of the only firms in the petroleum market that offers environmental services, compliance services, remediation and cost recovery with in-house staff on a national basis. This strategic acquisition enables ECS to simplify the compliance and remediation process for petroleum customers while reducing their costs, essentially becoming a one-stop shop for clients. The expanded staff will also allow for boots-on-the-ground support for ECS' existing web-based compliance management programs.

"The success of Pangean-CMD has evolved solely from our passion, our commitment to our customers, and our reputation for good, solid work," said Darren Moore, President of Pangean-CMD. "Combining our assets will allow us to build relationships, share knowledge, and draw on the collective expertise of our co-workers to do what we have always done best: provide the best customer service and work environment possible."

Doing the right thing for the environment should be a profit driver, not a cost. The value of ECS' clients' business assets - buildings, land, and reputation - exists within the context of the environment we all live in. Doing the right thing, day in and day out, should increase the value of those assets and our clients' profitability over the long term. The team at ECS wakes up every day trying to figure out how to help our clients transform a "cost" into a profitable impact for their bottom lines.
