VEOLIA ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES OPENS NEW LOCATION IN BOSTON AREA TO BETTER SERVICE CUSTOMERS

October 1, 2013

CHARLESTOWN, Mass. – In order to better service Boston-based customers, Veolia Environmental  Services (Veolia) is expanding its operations and opening a new location in Charlestown, Mass., to compliment company operations in Marlborough. The company provides recycling, reclamation, transportation and disposal of hazardous materials, emergency response and on-site service support to the metro Boston area.

The Charlestown operation will provide field, on-site services, technical and sales support. Its proximity to Boston brings Veolia physically closer to its customer base while simultaneously enabling faster response time for service deliverables and emergency response.

“This strategic location allows us to get closer to our customers,” said Gerry Beland, General Manager for Veolia ES Technical Solutions. “And just as important, we will be able to respond quicker to emergency situations in the metro Boston area. When hazardous materials are involved, we must mobilize quickly while providing quality, safe and compliant service deliverables. The Charlestown service location will afford us the opportunity to do that.”

The new facility is approximately 15,000 square feet in the heart of the biotech, pharma, higher education and hospital geography. The new branch location will be managed by Operations Manager Derek Nelhuebel with a staff of approximately 30 environmental compliance specialists. Derek’s focused efforts in operations, sales and service quality will showcase Veolia as a premier environmental services organization.
