BELLE CHASSE, LA (November, 2011) – Oil Mop, LLC announced that it will operate as a d/b/a under the new name OMI Environmental Solutions. Oil Mop has a world-renowned reputation and is one of the oldest oil spill response companies in the nation with over 40 years in business. Oil Mop has assisted with the cleanup of some of the largest oil spills and disasters in our nation’s history. Rebranding OMI Environmental Solutions will more appropriately convey the breadth and depth of the services available to its customers.
OMI Environmental Solutions’ president and CEO, Shaw Thompson said, “With our continued expansion, we found the name Oil Mop somewhat limited the perception our customers have concerning the various services and products we provide. By offering not only oil spill response, the company will utilize its resources to respond with solutions for any type of spill or haz-mat response situation, industrial service, standby rescue, waste management and disposal service, and transportation service. With safety always first and foremost at OMI Environmental Solutions, the company also offers safety, compliance and training services on line, on site or off site. Furthermore, the products division can provide any company with environmental and safety products both nationally and internationally.”
Joe Christiana, vice president and general manager, explained, “We felt the need to be clear that we are not just about oil spills, as our name implies. Rebranding was the next step. The name OMI Environmental Solutions encompasses all we have to offer and aligns with our corporate initiatives. Our eight lines of business are comprised of fully integrated and experienced support teams uniquely qualified to assess any situation and develop unique solutions to meet the needs of customers. With rebranding, it will be clearer that we do more than just respond to oil spills.”
OMI Environmental Solutions currently has offices in 11 cities across Louisiana and Texas, but can respond with teams anywhere to provide solutions regardless of where or when the next challenge arises.
