EnviroForensics Announces Acquisition Of Vapor Protection Services

The environmental consulting experts at Indianapolis-based EnviroForensics®, announced that they are adding even more experience and knowledge to their already established and nationally respected vapor intrusion (VI) service team. The industry-leading environmental consulting firm has acquired Vapor Protection Services® (VPS), a VI mitigation company, in a move that now allows them to provide turn-key, premier VI services through a wholly owned subsidiary.

VPS is a highly acclaimed and recommended, healthy indoor air company, specializing in the design and implementation of mitigation systems for volatile organic compounds, radon and other contaminants that, through a vapor intrusion pathway, can present a threat to human health. For years, VPS, has provided its certified mitigation solutions to environmental consultants, businesses and building owners throughout the region. By bringing the VPS certified mitigation experts in to work side-by-side with their team, EnviroForensics respected VI consultants and engineers will be able to more efficiently and responsively serve their clients. “The vapor intrusion mitigation approaches designed and installed by VPS have always been exactly what we’ve needed for our sites with VI concerns. When dealing with VI at hazardous waste sites like we do, a regular radon-style system just isn’t good enough, and VPS has understood that. I am extremely excited to have that expertise on our team”, says Megan Hamilton, Director of Vapor Intrusion and Risk Assessment at EnviroForensics.

This is the latest development in what has been a banner year for EnviroForensics. The environmental consultant marked its 20th anniversary, created more than a dozen new positions and posted record revenues in 2016. The company also celebrated the grand opening of a brand new headquarter building; a refurbished industrial structure boasting 23,000 square-feet of open-concept work space, state-of-the-art field training labs and unique works of art from some of the Indiana’s most beloved artists.

“We are thrilled to welcome VPS to the EnviroForensics family,” said Nancy Shields, EnviroForensics President. “We value the longstanding success and expertise of VPS and are committed to providing their team of VI Mitigation specialists the resources they need to continue their success. This investment also illustrates our confidence in the continuing future needs for appropriately designed and installed VI mitigation systems. Both existing and new clients will see the benefits of our subsidiaries’ efforts as they continue to make indoor air healthier for everyone.”

With the acquisition of VPS, EnviroForensics executives have their eyes forward to another year of improved customer service and growth. The addition of VPS’ certified mitigation services solidifies EnviroForensics’ commitment to providing top-notch services and solutions to its clients, and increases the probability of gaining a foothold in new markets.
