Clean Harbors Sells Catalyst Services Business

Zachry Group to Transform Line to New Division


September 1, 2016

Zachry Group, America's leader in turnkey construction, engineering, maintenance, turnaround and fabrication services, announced today that it has acquired Catalyst Services from Clean Harbors, the leading provider of environmental, energy and industrial services throughout North America.

Catalyst Services is an international industry leader in catalyst change-out services, with a particular expertise in the refining and petrochemicals sector. These services represent a highly specialized aspect of the turnaround, repair and maintenance requirements of industrial facilities. Catalyst Services has 500 employees and operates in the U.S., Canada and Trinidad.

Catalyst Services will be rebranded as JVIC Catalyst Services and will operate alongside JVIC's current catalyst operations within the recently created Services Division of Zachry Group.

Once we determined that Catalyst Services was no longer a core part of our portfolio, it was important for us to identify an owner who was a good strategic fit for the business, said Eric W. Gerstenberg, Clean Harbors' Chief Operating Officer. We are confident that our catalyst customers will be well-served by Zachry Group, and that the employees of that business will benefit from being part of its organization going forward. We will continue to work closely with Zachry to make certain that the transition for both customers and employees is a smooth one.
