JSS Expands Services
JSS has acquired the Remedial Services Division of Superior Environmental Corp, based in Grand Rapids, Mich.
This acquisition significantly expands the capabilities of Job Site Services (JSS) by adding new drilling services, including environmental drilling, geotechnical drilling, Geoprobe® services, and in-situ injection using the Badger Injection System.
“These new drilling services perfectly complement the environmental services we’ve been providing since we started in 1999,” said Derek Marranca, president and CEO of JSS. “We have had the environmental science and engineering expertise, practical hands-on experience, safety culture and the resources necessary to meet even the most complex tasks in site remediation and environmental construction. Now we also have a wide breadth of drilling and probing services for our customers.”
“JSS typically helps customers with remediation and cleanup services. All of our customers use and need drilling and probing services to investigate their situation, usually before we would come into the project,” said Todd White, chief operating officer of JSS. “This addition allows us to do more for our existing customer base and new customers — supporting their needs earlier in their projects.”
On January 18, all of Superior’s drilling and probing operations, as well as the division’s six employees, were transferred to JSS at a new facility in Cedar Springs, Mich.
“In addition to the expert employees and the extensive drilling capabilities, this new location will also make it easier for JSS to serve and support our customers on the west side of Michigan, which is growing steadily, as well as our broader group of customers across the Midwest and the greater United States,” said White.
The new drilling and probing services include:
