TAS Environmental Services L.P., a Fort Worth-based environmental service provider, announced May 16 it has acquired Water Kleen Services, a regional provider of environmental and industrial services. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
TAN Environmental is a portfolio company of TEAM Partners LLC.
Water Kleen, based in Ennis, has over 20 years of history providing environmental and industrial services, including hydroblasting (10,000 – 24,000 psi), vacuum truck services, hydro-excavating, hydrojetting and roll-off truck services. Water Kleen operates primarily in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, but also works throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas.
“Water Kleen has developed an attractive niche in the DFW marketplace, especially with its core competencies of hydroblasting and vacuum truck services,” said Ed Genovese, TAS president and CEO. “This is a tremendous opportunity to combine the strengths of TAS with Water Kleen and continue to provide high-quality service to Water Kleen’s customers with the additional support and resources of a larger organization. We are also excited to add the talented employees of Water Kleen as part of the TAS organization. This transaction is a big step forward for us and I’m excited about the future opportunities of the combined company.”
David Mann, managing partner of TEAM Partners said the acquisition provides a catalyst for the continued growth of TAS. “We have a strong appetite for future growth and will continue to look for additional acquisitions and new locations to enhance and expand our footprint,” he said.
As part of the Water Kleen acquisition, TAS also refinanced its capital structure with ORIX Mezzanine & Private Equity and Dallas Capital Bank.
