PRESS RELEASE

LANCASTER, Pa., Aug. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — PennSpring Capital, a direct investment firm focused on lower middle market opportunities in the Mid-Atlantic region, announced today that it has made an initial investment in Environmental Remediation and Financials Services (ERFS). Based in New Jersey, ERFS is an industry leader in the development of in-situ (subsurface) soil and groundwater remediation technologies, and is recognized for industry-first innovations and financial strategies. PennSpring’s initial investment facilitates the expansion of ERFS’ post-pandemic operations, and the initiation of major projects across the United States. ERFS intends to offer a new generation of remediation services to more than 30 industries as part of this rolling expansion.

This is PennSpring’s second significant investment in Environmental Services, following the January 2021 acquisition of Pennsylvania-based EHC Associates.

“We believe the demand for soil and groundwater cleanups is likely to surge in 2022 and beyond, with redevelopment projects resumed and Federally-funded infrastructure overhauls underway,” said PennSpring Managing Partner Lou Castelli. “We invest in outstanding management, and we have utmost confidence in CEO Mark Vigneri and his seasoned team to execute against this demand. We are excited to support EFRS in all business aspects, and to further advance our Environmental Services investment thesis.”
