Officially opening the doors on October 15th, 2020, Hull’s has announced their newest environmental services facility in Nashville, Tennessee. Positioned just 23 miles due north of Nashville, the facility is located at 2271 Industrial Court in Greenbrier, Tennessee. The new Nashville location complements existing Atlanta, GA, Jacksonville, FL, Panama City, FL, Winter Haven, FL and Tampa, FL facilities in the southeast and numerous facilities in Oklahoma and Texas.
The new facility will provide environmental services to public entities and the private sector. They include emergency spill response for oil, fuel and hazardous materials, hazardous and non-hazardous waste transportation and disposal, industrial cleaning, vacuum truck services and contaminated site remediation. Like all other Hull’s locations, this new location is expected to provide clients with a team of highly trained and skilled professionals with a commitment to health, safety and the environment. All Hull’s personnel, at a minimum, are trained and certified in OSHA 40-Hour HAZWOPER (Hazardous Waste Operations & Emergency Response), confined space entry (CSE), and first aid/CPR.
Response crews have the ability to quickly respond to spills and other emergency response incidents on land or in the water, mitigating damage or harm to the environment. In fact, Hull’s is a U.S. Coast Guard certified Oil Spill Removal Organization (OSRO) with the ability to serve the needs of marine clients that may require water-borne emergency response services. Accordingly, the new location is equipped with a fully stocked emergency response trailer (ERT), response boats, sorbent and containment boom, skimming equipment, and a variety of pumps.
Tony Payne, the company’s Executive Vice President, said “I’m thrilled to announce our expansion into Nashville. We have existing customers in the railroad, transportation, manufacturing, and utility industries that we can better serve. We’re also confident that new business development in Nashville’s dynamic and booming economy has tremendous upside and potential to further build our customer base. Conditions like this are what make investing in an area a much easier decision.”
According to 2017 Chamber of Commerce data, Nashville was the number five fastest growing metropolitan area in the country for trade, transportation and utilities, number three for natural resources and mining and number one for other services.
Director of Marketing and Business Development, Jamie Michael, noted that, “Nashville has an incredible outlook when you look at the growth statistics. They are strong indicators of a growing metro area that public entities and private sector businesses are investing and doing business in. Coupled with our existing customer base, it was a logical decision to set up shop in Nashville.”
