Drummac and MER
MER and Drummac...
The Moran Environmental Recovery (MER) family of companies work with the energy and industrial, rail, marine and pipeline industries to provide preparedness services, support emergency response requirements, and execute specialized projects. These core competencies involve specialized risk management tools, and are performed in strict compliance with complex regulatory requirements. MER is committed to delivering our “Best-in-Class” Safety Culture, from our written programs, to how our employees embrace and execute our plan. We are proud of our reputation for safety, and remain committed to delivering “Best-in-Class” safety results.
In March of 2012, Drummac joined the MER family of companies. As a provider of specialty services to the passenger rail industry, Drummac represents a logical addition to MER’s ongoing strategic initiative to provide integrated and embedded services to key clients within defined industries. Ashley Rea, the former owner, continues to work with the company in the capacity of Vice President of Business Development.
Similar to MER's other subsidiaries (Water Recovery, Jacksonville Pollution Control, and Coastal Oceans Resources), Drummac enjoys an extremely strong “brand” within its industry, and will continue to operate as an independent organization. Supported by MER, we believe there is significant opportunity for expansion and integration of services throughout our operating footprint.
Together, as a part of the MER Family of Companies, these collective subsidiaries now employ nearly 400 professionals, and operate from 37 different locations, spread across 19 states.
MER and the Railroad
For 15 years, MER has serviced environmental and emergency response contracts for Class I Railroads such as Amtrak, CSX, and Norfolk Southern; in addition to providing integrated services to multiple Class II and Class III regional railroads such as Metro North. We currently hold the Amtrak 3-year Hazardous Material and Emergency Response Contract , which we have serviced since 2001. All MER personnel participate in FRA -49CFR214 Railway Worker Protection (RWP) training, in addition to maintaining all required “Basic 8” environmental certifications. Additionally, MER is a member of the National Railroad Construction (NRC) and Maintenance Association, and AREMA.
