Valicor Environmental Services, one of North America’s largest providers of non-hazardous wastewater treatment services, has expanded its leading network of wastewater processing facilities through the opening of its Houston location on Nov. 6.
The Houston facility represents Valicor’s third centralized wastewater treatment (CWT) facility in Texas, complementing its existing CWT plants in Robstown (Corpus Christi) and Hutchins (Dallas). The Houston facility is ISO 14001 certified and equipped to handle oily water, leachate, and oil collection.
“We are excited about the value we can provide both existing and new customers from the Houston facility. Valicor is committed to growing our presence in the Houston market and continuing to provide reliable and differentiated service to our customers throughout Texas,” Bill Hinton, Valicor’s chief commercial officer, said.
Houston is the most recent network addition for Valicor, which has increased its number of CWT plants from five to 14 in just over twenty-four months as it focuses on growing its national footprint.
Valicor is owned by Pritzker Private Capital, who partnered with management in July 2019. Valicor’s strategy focuses on both developing greenfield CWT facilities and acquiring operators of CWT facilities as well as other providers of waste management and environmental services, including materials recycling, used oil processing, product destruction, landfill solidification, and related services.
