VelocityEHS, a provider of cloud-based environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability solutions, recently acquired ChemTel Inc, a hazardous chemical transportation safety and compliance service provider.
The acquisition combines ChemTel’s emergency response operations center and hazardous materials transportation consulting services with VelocityEHS’ MSDSonline chemical management platform to assist customers with virtually any hazardous chemical safety and regulatory compliance concern.
“ChemTel’s solution set extends our chemical management reach and gives our customers broader capabilities around their chemical transportation and incident mitigation compliance requirements,” said Glenn Trout, president and chief executive officer of VelocityEHS. “They have an impressive team with deep domain expertise related to the complex regulatory issues around handling, transporting and utilizing hazardous materials. This is a natural extension to our SDS/chemical management platform and furthers our position as the industry’s gold standard solution. We look forward to working together to simplify our customers’ evolving regulatory compliance needs.”
For more than 30 years, ChemTel has provided companies that manufacture, handle and transport hazardous materials with the 24-hour emergency response number necessary for compliance with Department of Transportation (DOT), OSHA and other regulatory requirements. The company’s staff and state-of-the-art systems offer comprehensive incident mitigation assistance in emergency situations involving hazardous chemicals and materials.
As one of the select few federally recognized Emergency Response Communication Call Centers, thousands of corporations, educational institutions and governmental entities rely on ChemTel to provide emergency preparedness and compliance support.
ChemTel will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of VelocityEHS and continue to operate as part of the VelocityEHS team from their current office location in Tampa FL.
