OTTAWA, July 2, 2013 /CNW/ - BluMetric Environmental Inc. (TSX-V: BLM)
is pleased to announce it now has an office in Barrie, Ontario, to
service the environmental demands of The City of Barrie and Simcoe
County, one of the fastest growing regions in Ontario.
In June, BluMetric bought the business and hired the employees of
Vicinia Corporation, a Barrie-based environmental health and safety
company owned by Christopher Hauschild, with several employees and
ongoing contracts with both government and industry clients; this will
now constitute the Barrie BluMetric office. In the past, Vicinia has
worked jointly with BluMetric on professional service contracts as well
as wastewater treatment plants in Simcoe County and Muskoka District.
The Barrie BluMetric office will continue to provide existing services,
environment, health and safety management
hazardous material management
workplace audits and inspections
environment, health and safety training.
In addition to the services outlined above, Barrie's BluMetric team will
offer the following, working closely with BluMetric's Kitchener and
hydrogeology and hydrology
environmental site assessments
engineering rehabilitation and design
solid, liquid, hazardous and biomedical waste management
waterpower and hydraulic structures
industrial hygiene, occupational health and safety
geomatics and data management.
Christopher Hauschild, now office manager for the new BluMetric Barrie
location, said, "I jumped at the opportunity to work with this dynamic
group of people so that we can introduce a new range of expertise and
services to our loyal and well-established client base. BluMetric has
a unique attitude toward service delivery - it is large enough to bring
comprehensive services to clients, yet it remains innovative and is
able to bring leading-edge approaches and technologies to fruition. I'm
very excited to have these offerings for existing and new clients."
"Having worked extensively with Chris and his team, we are pleased to
welcome them to BluMetric, and know that their expertise and
professionalism will add to the strengths we bring to our clients,"
said William Touzel, CEO of BluMetric. "This marks the opening of
BluMetric's tenth office worldwide, and is part of our strategy to
strengthen our presence in the Windsor-to-Quebec corridor."
BluMetric delivers sustainable solutions to complex environmental
issues. The Company serves clients in many industrial sectors, and at
all levels of government, in Canada and abroad.
