Arrow Material Services acquires EMS Management, Inc.

Monday, November 7, 2016
Arrow Material Services

, provider of material handling and logistics services, has purchased EMS Management, Inc. Based in Denison, TX, EMS offers environmental cleaning services to rail, marine, intermodal transport and industrial facilities across the United States and Canada. Having been in business for more than 20 years, EMS has become a leader in mobile and fixed cleaning operations by developing a unique set of engineered solutions utilizing proprietary chemistry to serve customers in the transportation, food, energy, plastics and general manufacturing sectors.

“This acquisition is mutually beneficial and perfectly complements our terminal management services,” noted Ed Cumberledge, CEO of Arrow Material Services. “The principles and culture of EMS are a natural fit with our dedication to safety, quality, honesty, efficiency and confidentiality, and I am pleased that EMS’s leadership team of Steve Avila, Michael Castelli and Todd Hull will continue to guide EMS under this new arrangement.”

This year marked a turning point for EMS, which expanded its vast experience base providing fixed cleaning services to establish barge and vessel cleaning operations in the Houston Ship Channel region. As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Arrow, EMS will use that base of operations to provide above-ground storage tank and in-plant cleaning services to customers throughout North America.
