Liquid Environmental Solutions Acquires FloHawks Plumbing + Septic
IRVING, Texas, September 3, 2020 – Liquid Environmental Solutions (“LES”) announces that, effective today, the company has acquired the assets of FloHawks Plumbing + Septic (“FloHawks”) – a leading provider of septic services including pumping, inspections, repair and maintenance, as well as plumbing and drain cleaning services for both residential and commercial customers in the Pacific Northwest. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
FloHawks, based in Puyallup, WA, will continue to operate under the FloHawks name, adding an extensive network of non-hazardous wastewater customers to the existing LES operation in the Pacific Northwest. FloHawks customers include owners of sewer systems, septic systems and grease traps/interceptors that must be serviced regularly to prevent sewer spills and to protect the public wastewater collection system.
Brian Bidelspach, Vice President of Expansion Operations, commented, “We are thrilled to have FloHawks join the LES family. With this acquisition, LES now serves thousands of new customer locations, and offers a broader, more comprehensive range of wastewater support services throughout the Pacific Northwest. Furthermore, we provide critical sustainability benefits to our new customers, as we turn hundreds of thousands of gallons of wastewater into renewables.”
Jerry Sheridan, LES Chief Executive Officer, also commented, “I’m very pleased to welcome the FloHawks team and their loyal customers to LES. We look forward to working closely with them to expand their reach, and to incorporate their outstanding contributions to our business.”
“Our team is excited to become part of the LES family, and to help strengthen our collective footprint in the Pacific Northwest,” commented J.R. Inman, VP of FloHawks, who will continue to lead the division following the transaction. “Like LES, we are committed to creating a positive experience for our customers, and look forward to accelerating our growth with a new team and new resources supporting us along the way.”
