Company creates emergency response jobs in Tampa

Monday, September 17th, 2012

A company that has found itself rapidly expanding has created many new emergency response jobs in Tampa among other Florida locations.

AAG Environmental has said it has been expanding and hiring, including a new Senior Environmental Manager for the Jacksonville office, new equipment and new response centers across Florida and Georgia signal the next steps in the company’s growth in the environmental emergency response and hazardous waste industry.

AAG Environmental is a Land + Soil + Waste Remediation Company. They specialize in Environmental cleanup. They are an emergency response contractor; environmental site remediation specialist and Hazardous waste clean up specialist in Florida and South Georgia.

According to a recent article, AAG Environmental has been conducting emergency response cleanup and site remediation projects since 1998. The company has been operating response centers in the Tallahassee and Orlando areas for the past several years and opened a response center in Brooksville a year ago to serve the Tampa area.

AAG has also recently hired Mark Farwell to operate the AAG Jacksonville office. They will soon provide vacuum truck and maritime cleanup services in the Jacksonville area and beyond. In the meantime, they have added a back-up response center in Gibsonton to serve the Tampa area.

They are also setting up response centers in Chipley and Crestview in the Florida panhandle and plan to have them in service by the end of September. When the expansion is complete, they will be able to cover I-75 from Macon, Georgia to south of Naples and part way across the Everglades. They will also serve clients who are off of I-10 from Jacksonville to Pensacola, I-95 from south of Savannah to Boca Raton, all of I-4 and all of the highways and byways in those areas.

“For Georgia, we set up response centers in Cordele and Adel, thus serving the I-75 corridor north to Macon, Georgia,” explains Alan Chandler, President of AAG Environmental. “We have also set up response centers in Port Charlotte and in Stuart, thereby serving both the southwest part of Florida, as well as the southeast coast as far south as Boca Raton.”

“We look forward to working with you in our newly expanded response region and, as always, we remain committed to serving you, our client, by providing superior service at equitable pricing,” continues Mr. Chandler. “All of us at AAG thank you for your past support and we truly look forward to a successful future for all of us.”
