Ingenium, Escondido, California, announced Dec. 2 that it has acquired San Jose, California-based WSR Environmental and Safety Management (WSR).
Ingenium provides a range of waste management services, specializing in packaging, transportation, recycling and disposal of hazardous, nonhazardous, biological, universal and radioactive waste.
By acquiring WSR, Ingenium adds environmental health and safety (EH&S) consulting services to its portfolio, including safety planning, program management, training, environmental permits, and interfacing with regulatory agencies. According to the company, these additional services will enable Ingenium to provide more comprehensive waste management and environmental, health and safety compliance offerings to its clients.
“Our strength lies in our innovative approach to each process, profile and waste stream,” Heather Johnson, CEO of Ingenium, says. “This provides the knowledge to create waste reduction and reuse strategies, leverage our treatment facility network and present our clients with the most sustainable, measurable and cost-effective hazardous waste solutions. We are excited to bring together these two companies with complementary strengths to provide more comprehensive services to support our clients’ waste management and environmental, health and safety compliance needs.”
Scott Rendleman, founder of WSR and CCO of Ingenium, adds, “Ingenium clients now have access to additional innovative solutions and expertise to achieve extraordinary results for their waste management programs that have had positive effects on the environment and their bottom line. The addition of the EH&S services that the acquisition of WSR brings will allow Ingenium to be a one-stop solution for customers.”
