What a year!
2016 has been an exciting time for all of us here at Environmental Products Group. We have experienced change, growth, and expansion as we enter a new phase, all geared towards serving you. After such an exciting year, we wanted to let you in on the excitement and share with you our 10 best moments of the year!
In August of 2016, Environmental Products Georgia partnered with Petersen Industries as the only dealership offering Petersen products in the state of Georgia. Petersen’s 50 years of manufacturing experience, attention to quality and safety continues to produce the best and most diverse product line available. Our partnership with Petersen Industries allows us to continue to provide you with the best equipment possible for you to get the job done.
2016 also brought forth our partnership with PB Loaders. PB Loader Corporation was founded in 1956 with the introduction of the truck-mounted loader, a combination of a dump truck and loader in one unit. Today PB offers a complete line of Truck-Mounted Loaders, Asphalt Patchers, Dump Bodies and Emulsion Sprayers.
Our relationship with Envirosight continued to grow in 2016 as we partnered with Pipeline Renewal Technologies as the authorized Repair Facility in the southeast. Pipeline Renewal Technologies delivers innovation to processes ranging from pipe point repair to relining and lateral reinstatement. Innovative products require knowledgeable service. Now you can send your Pipeline Renewal Technologies equipment to our Atlanta Service Center and know that the repairs are in good hands.
Environmental Products Group has always held quality service as a top priority. Not only do we offer the best in quality equipment, we help you maintain your equipment, too! To make sure we continued to provide you with optimal service, we knew 2016 was the year to expand our team and add additional services (I.e. Authorized Pipeline Renewal Technologies repair services). Our factory trained technicians provide service for all the product brands we offer and other brands as well. We offer fabrication, machining, welding and pump repair, A/C diagnosis and recharging, periodic or general maintenance, refurbishment, painting, and detail work.
In addition to expanding our service team, we expanded our abilities in how we can serve you! New service mobile lube trucks and trailers were delivered to the Atlanta and Apopka Service Centers summer of 2016. This allows each dealership to have a larger capacity for mobile truck service, continuing our mission to provide quality service beyond the shop.
Environmental Products Florida had the pleasure of assisting the Elgin Track Sweeper at this years Daytona 500. This snapshot of the Elgin Track Sweepers Facebook post says it all...
Our involvement at the Daytona 500 was also highlighted in an article featured in North American Sweeper Magazine. Below is an excerpt from the article.
"[The EPG] team in Apopka that works with Daytona International Speedway consists of Nickolas Causey, EPOF East Coast Sales Manager, Buck Reed and Matt Taylor, both Certified Elgin Sweeper Technicians and approved NASCAR on-track operators. Their team does a fantastic job setting the machine up for Daytona International Speedway and operating the machine(s) during hot track conditions."
Growth was the theme of 2016! We had outgrown our Southern Florida location in Fort Lauderdale. We knew that if we wanted to preserve the quality of our service, we needed to move to a larger location. On June 1st of 2016, the brand new Deerfield Beach Service Center opened its doors! The new Deerfield Beach location offers 12 truck stalls (doubling our service capacity), the on-sight Envirosight Service Room doubled in size, and the Mobile Truck Service is now available to be dispatched from this location. The Deerfield Beach Service Center is also conveniently located between the Turnpike and 95.
2016 offered an exciting opportunity to expand our operations to the Caribbean. Environmental Products Caribbean debuted as a sponsor at the 25th annual Caribbean Water & Wastewater Association Conference and Exhibition.
Ever since the conference we have been able to continue to develop relationships in the Caribbean, offering our excellent service and quality products. We look forward to increasing our presence in the Caribbean to do what we can to preserve this beautiful paradise.
The result of growth is change. Sometimes the change is bittersweet but, in the end, it's for the better.
After 14 years, we said goodbye to "Environmental Products of Florida, Georgia, and the Caribbean" as well as the aliases that followed and presented the NEW Environmental Products Group (EPG) the parent company of Environmental Products Florida, Environmental Products Georgia, Environmental Products Caribbean, and EP Rents.
Which leads us to our #1 Moment of 2016!
2016 marks the year that Environmental Products re-branded itself. Our growth not only required expanded locations, additional staff, more services, and a new name... it required a facelift as well. Many concepts were thrown around until we landed on our new identity, marking the beginning of a new era for Environmental Products Group.
After the corporate company logo of Environmental Products Group was established, the complete family of logos soon followed.
Once our identity was complete, we were ready to face a new, bright future for Environmental Products Group.
