Partner Acquires Florida Environmental Services Firm to Bolster Industrial Hygiene and Environmental Services Practice

Licensed staff meets stringent State requirements and certifications for environmental consultants

Torrance, CA – April 15, 2019 - Partner Engineering and Science, Inc. (Partner), a national engineering, environmental and energy consulting firm headquartered in Torrance, CA has acquired ECO Advisors, LLC (ECO) on April 1, 2019.  ECO is an environmental and industrial hygiene services firm located in Palm Beach Gardens, which will significantly grow Partner’s presence in the State of Florida.

“ECO is a well-respected firm in the environmental and industrial hygiene services market in South Florida. Their staff maintains many of the state licensing required to perform this work in Florida and we are privileged to have these talented engineers, scientists, and environmental professionals join the company,” said Frank S. Romeo, Jr., President of Partner.

ECO, a 28-year-old company, provides a wide range of environmental services including industrial hygiene assessments such as asbestos, mold, and lead; IAQ, Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments, soil and groundwater contamination, storage tanks management, and OSHA/EPA compliance. Some of ECO’s staff are registered as Certified Industrial Hygienists, Florida ACAC Certified Indoor Environmental Consultants, Licensed Mold Inspectors, EPA Lead Risk Assessors, and Licensed Asbestos Consultants. Florida has stringent requirements for industrial hygiene work and, as a result, ECO has been able to secure major projects and multi-year contracts with private clients, counties, municipalities, school districts, and the Florida Department of Transportation.

John Poggi of ECO commented, “We know that industrial hygiene is a business experiencing rapid growth at Partner and we are excited to bring our complementary services into the Partner family to further expand this sector while continuing to manage and offer new services to our current clients.”

“The state of Florida has some of the strictest regulations for environmental hazards including those involving asbestos, mold, lead based paint, radon, and indoor air quality,” Romeo remarked.  “In addition to years of experience and a stellar reputation, ECO and its staff maintain the licenses, certifications, and accreditations necessary to serve our existing and potential clients’ needs legally and effectively.” 

Partner currently offers a full range of environmental due diligence services based out of three offices in the State of Florida. The addition of ECO’s certified professionals will further diversify and expand our expertise and solutions for current and future clients throughout the State.
