Valicor Environmental Services, a portfolio company of Wind Point Partners, has acquired Ultra Environmental Services Inc, a collector and processor of industrial wastewater in the Midwest. No financial terms were disclosed. Kirkland & Ellis served as legal adviser to Valicor and Wind Point on the deal while KPMG was transaction adviser.


Monroe, OH, July 7, 2017 – 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 acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Ultra Environmental Services, Inc.

Ultra Environmental collects and processes non-hazardous industrial wastewater in the Midwest United States. The addition of Ultra’s centralized wastewater pretreatment facility in Burlington, KY significantly increases Valicor’s wastewater capacity in the region.

“We are excited to extend Valicor’s leading network into Kentucky and increase our total wastewater treatment capacity through the acquisition of Ultra Environmental,” said Bill Hinton, Valicor’s Chief Commercial Officer. “Ultra Environmental will play an important role in supporting our growth goals with wastewater generators as well as with providers of third party environmental solutions.”

Terry Klopfstein, owner of Ultra Environmental, commented “Two of my most important goals in a sale were to (1) ensure that our loyal customers would continue to receive the excellent, highly customized service that Ultra’s reputation was built upon, and (2) provide a very bright future for our dedicated employees. I was thrilled to partner with Valicor, who not only met these criteria but also made the process of selling both extremely fair and unbelievably simple.”
