GES is pleased to announce the acquisition of Bluestone Environmental Services, LLC (Bluestone), effective April 6, 2020, as a complementary fit into GES’ environmental service offering.

“With this strategic acquisition, we can immediately expand our environmental consulting and remediation services in New Jersey and eventually across other operations,” said Ed Van Woudenberg, CEO of GES. “This is another step forward toward growing our core services for the future with the additional key staff and new clients that can benefit from the full range of environmental services we provide.” The transaction adds to GES’ core services of subsurface investigation and remediation, environmental permitting, and terminal operations compliance services.

All Bluestone employees, including founder Andy Cozzi, have joined GES as part of the acquisition. Andy, a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) in New Jersey, brings more than 34 years of experience as a consultant and remediation expert. He leads a team of highly qualified professionals to support clients in the oil and gas, energy, industrial, commercial, and public sectors. “We are all very excited to join the GES team,” said Andy. “Our focused client services approach, combined with the comprehensive range of solutions from GES, will only serve to add value to a broad client base.” All told, Bluestone’s technical staff bring a combined total of more than 50 years of experience in the environmental industry to GES.

“The integration of Bluestone personnel into our operations and client teams is already taking place,” notes Ed, “with a cross-functional transition team that includes Finance, Legal, Human Resources, and Operations personnel.” Bluestone personnel have joined GES’ Mid-Atlantic operations, reporting to David Zailik, LSRP, Director of Operations. GES and Bluestone team members are working collaboratively with the Mid-Atlantic operations and client program leads to jointly achieve our clients’ objectives and expectations.
