Environmental and infrastructure service company, York1, has announced that it has acquired United Environmental Holdings Inc. (United), a solid waste service provider headquartered in Toronto, Ontario.
York1 claims that this acquisition will strengthen its service portfolio and supports its aggressive growth strategy.
The acquisition comes less than a month after York1 made its acquisition of the Budget Group, a waste collection and demolition conglomerate consisting of Budget Environmental Disposal Inc., Regional Disposal Services Inc. and Budget Iron and Metal Inc.
United specializes in the industrial, commercial and institutional waste sectors, operating three waste processing facilities and a waste roll off collection fleet in Toronto and Durham regions.
With its main focus being landfill diversion, United manages approximately 250,000 tonnes of waste annually through its three facilities located in South Etobicoke, Scarborough and Whitby.
“The addition of United’s strategically positioned waste processing facilities increases York1’s network of waste and recycling processing facilities in Ontario to ten, this geographic coverage will enable us to internalize a significant amount of our waste collection volume and position us to continue to deliver best-in-class customer service at competitive rates. York1’s brand promise of peace of mind performance will be supported with the addition of United’s experienced team. This acquisition, along with our organic growth strategy, positions York1 to take advantage of many operational synergies, and we are looking forward to welcoming United’s employees to the York1 team,” said Brian Brunetti, president of York1.
“We are excited to be part of York1 because they share our entrepreneurial spirit, and they have the platform to take our business to the next level. They understand the importance of strong customer relationships and will continue to deliver the same high level of service to our customers. We are confident that York1 will continue to enhance and grow what we have built over the last 13 years,” stated Jon Lewis, president of United.
According to York1, this new partnership with United will continue to enhance its ability to offer customers a fully integrated service portfolio consisting of waste management, metal recycling, demolition, excavation, shoring and foundations, hydrovac excavation, underground services, directional drilling and construction services.
