Liquid Environmental Solutions Acquires Rite-Way Industrial Service, Inc.

Acquisition adds tremendous talent and broader coverage to the Columbus, Ohio marketplace

IRVING, Texas, January 28, 2021 – Liquid Environmental Solutions announces that, effective today, the company has acquired the assets of Rite-Way – a leading provider of industrial and environmental cleaning, waste hauling and remediation services in the Columbus, OH area. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Rite-Way, based in Groveport, OH, adds an extensive network of non-hazardous wastewater customers to the existing LES operation in the Columbus, OH area. These customers own industrial and environmental cleaning, waste hauling and remediation systems that must be serviced regularly to prevent overflows, and to protect the public wastewater collection system.

Brian Bidelspach, Vice President of Expansion Operations for LES, commented: “We are thrilled to have Rite-Way join the LES family. With this acquisition, we now serve thousands of new customer locations, and offer an unparalleled range of wastewater support services in the Columbus, OH area. Furthermore, we provide tremendous sustainability benefits to our new customers, as we will turn hundreds of thousands of gallons of their wastewater into renewables.”

Jerry Sheridan, Chief Executive Officer for LES, also commented: “I’m very pleased to welcome the Rite-Way team and their loyal customers to LES. We look forward to working closely with them on expanding our national footprint, and on delivering the highest-level of customer service.”
