National Response Corporation (NRC) has acquired SWS Environmental Services (SWS), significantly adding to its national footprint and expanding its full line of compliance and environmental services.

Since 1974, SWS has been providing a broad range of essential services including industrial, hazardous waste management, emergency response, marine, and remediation services to the energy, manufacturing, education, healthcare, chemical, transportation, government, and retail sectors. Employing over 250 personnel, SWS is a customer-focused company with 21 locations servicing 17 states throughout the Midwest, Gulf Coast, and Southeastern U.S.
NRC combines extensive technical expertise, broad geographic reach, differentiated assets, essential regulatory certifications, and a specialized workforce to address customers' recurring environmental service and regulatory compliance requirements, including standby, industrial, hazardous waste management, emergency response, marine, and remediation services. The Company is the largest commercial oil spill response organization (OSRO) with worldwide operations.
"This acquisition truly complements our existing U.S. footprint with virtually no overlap, enhancing our ability to reach customers throughout the U.S." said NRC CEO Paul Taveira. "It strengthens our national capabilities and our geographic reach, better enabling us to service our national and international client base."
"This acquisition enhances our capabilities to provide our core suite of services to our national and regional customers, providing them with greater synergies across their entire enterprise," added Lou O'Brien, SVP Sales & Marketing. "For more than 24 years, NRC has been renowned for its oil spill standby and response capabilities. We have now completed nine strategic acquisitions over the past five years including ENPRO Services, Op-Tech Environmental Services, Sureclean Limited, Emerald Alaska, Specialized Response Solutions, Boom Technology, Water Truck Services, and CleanLine WWS. As a result, we now provide a broader suite of compliance and environmental services than any other company in our market segments."
Eric Zimmer, SWS CEO commented, "We are excited to join the NRC group which will allow us to expand our geographic footprint. We will continue to provide our clients with cost-effective solutions to a wide range of environmental concerns while growing our business using NRC's strong global presence."
