New York-based Amlon Environmental Services LLC has announced the acquisition of a majority stake of Alpha Omega Recycling Inc. (AORI), a Texas-based recycler of sludges, metallic dusts and filter press cakes.
Amlon says the acquisition positions Amlon and AORI to become “a market leader in directly managing, processing and recycling spent catalysts and other metal-containing wastes including complex wastes and byproducts. (AORI’s operations were detailed in a February 2013 Recycling Today feature article.)
“We are extremely excited to complete this acquisition and can now offer our customers direct processing and recycling services,” says Lee Lasher, Amlon’s CEO. “Alpha Omega Recycling Inc. is a unique strategic asset and has worked diligently to become an exceptional fully licensed recycling facility.” AORI describes itself as RCRA (Resource Conservation and Recovery Act) licensed and HSM (hazardous secondary material) approved recycling facility.
Adds Lasher, “Through our unique combined knowledge, experience, creativity, international network, resources, long-term relationships, processing capabilities, strong technical expertise and ability to manage diverse types of metal-containing wastes, byproducts, spent catalysts and scrap materials, we are positioned to offer Industry a robust recycling platform and reclamation programs that, I believe, are the best available, bar none. This is a game changer.”
Comments Mark Wayne, president of AORI, “The experience and expertise brought together through this transaction is unmatched, and I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead.”
