CLEVELAND, OH (May 2, 2019) – Blue Point Capital Partners, in partnership with management, announced today the recapitalization of its fourth Blue Point IV platform investment, TAS Environmental Services (“TAS”), a provider of specialized environmental and industrial services in the southwest United States.

Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, TAS provides a comprehensive suite of essential environmental services including industrial cleaning, hydro blasting, waste transportation and disposal, emergency response, tank cleaning, box rental, pipeline maintenance and remediation, among others.  TAS operates across 13 locations in Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas, providing services to blue-chip customers on a daily, weekly, monthly and as-needed basis.        

“Blue Point’s ability to leverage our prior experience with multi-branch environmental and industrial services makes TAS a perfect addition to the BPCP IV portfolio,” said Sean Ward, a Partner with Blue Point.  “TAS has created a leading presence in the region, and we are excited to help the Company continue to execute on their growth strategies and goals to keep workplaces and the environment healthy and safe.”

The acquisition of TAS is a natural fit with the Blue Point business services portfolio.  Over the firm’s 19-year history, TAS represents one of its 37 investments made in the business service sector.

“We look forward to partnering with the TAS team to help build upon its strong platform, including via strategic acquisitions, while maintaining the Company’s outstanding service and safety track record,” said Charley Geiger, a Principal with Blue Point.
