Covanta Environmental Solutions, Morristown, New Jersey, is expanding its presence in Canada through the recent acquisition of Quantex Environmental Inc., a privately held environmental services company based in Kitchener, Ontario. The addition of Quantex, following Covanta’s 2017 acquisition of Sorinco Inc., Chambly, Quebec, expands the company’s network of material processing facilities in Canada.

Together the acquisitions expand Covanta’s service area and allow for continued development of a suite of environmental services offerings, including industrial liquid waste treatment and assured product destruction for the pharmaceutical, health and beauty, consumer products and food products industries. 

“Quantex and Sorinco were leaders in their space, recognized for service dependability and innovative solutions—exactly the type of companies that complement our strategy and allow us to grow in an important market,” Paul Stauder, president of Covanta Environmental Solutions, says. “Now, as part of Covanta Environmental Solutions, these entities will have the ability to provide our customers with an even more robust and comprehensive menu of the latest in sustainable materials management and environmental services, with the same or better level of service they have come to expect.”

With these latest acquisitions, Covanta has 17 material processing and recycling facilities in the U.S. and Canada.
