Today, the launch of this blog represents a complete transformation of the original company. With our accumulated skills and experienced homegrown staff, we consider ourselves a dominant turn-key environmental compliance services company for large, medium and small companies in the region in and surrounding Philadelphia providing peace of mind in uncertain situations and transforming precarious environmental issues into predictable possibilities.
I am honored to have such a smart, knowledgeable and energetic staff that is willing and able to provide valuable stories, updates and insights regarding the so-called mysterious world of environmental regulatory compliance. This blog is mainly for our customers to give them an edge on what’s happening in an ever changing regulatory climate. We also welcome those who are just browsing to join in on the conversations that dominate our days. The conversations will likely focus on the black, the grey and the white of environmental regulations, remediation and compliance.
We will zero in on issues that impact environmental compliance on real estate –specifically regarding soil, groundwater, and indoor air quality. Hopefully there will be something that catches your interest or directly relates to your past, current or future experience. Our staff has diverse backgrounds and experience so we will try to explore every facet of our business. We will also look to explore and discuss the perils of our customers businesses such as real estate development, management, banking, general contracting, or specific industries like oil, transportation or manufacturing.
In 1981, my partner, Jerry Naples started a company to address new environmental regulations. In 1989, Jerry “walked the walk” and purchased a 60-year old local oil terminal in southwest Philadelphia, which we cleaned up and still call home. By the early 1990s, the company evolved into an important spill response contractor for major transportation and oil companies; which was sometimes lucrative, but was also harrowing and hectic, to say the least. At the same time, we began to understand the maturation of our market and focused on efficient fixed-price contracting for soil, groundwater and indoor air remediation. As we gained understanding of the bigger picture and the needs of our customers, we also began to take on a consulting and management role which not only allowed us to be a smart contractor, but at the same time be a hands-on, practical and valuable consultant.
With that said, I’d like to officially welcome you to REPSG blog and invite you to engage with us in whatever way you are most comfortable—email, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or by simply picking up the phone. We welcome your comments and look forward to hearing from you!
