Brothers Jack and Michael Bodine established the company in response to the increasing complexity of the regulatory environment of the late 1980’s. Working with their father Richard Bodine, who founded Bodine Services in 1960, the brothers were in tune with the needs of their client base and increasingly were asked to provide services requiring specialized training in environmental regulation, materials transportation and disposal and hazardous materials management.
“There was a great natural fit adding the environmental services to our existing industrial maintenance business” said Jack Bodine, CEO of Bodine Services and Bodine Environmental Services. “We recognized the opportunity to bring additional value to existing clients and expand our offering in a way that leveraged our many years of experience in industrial services.” “The key to our success really comes down to listening to the customer and delivering a product that provides solutions to their particular needs. Our goal has always been to be there when they need us regardless of when or where.”
Bodine Environmental Services is one of 4 Corrective Action Contractors and one of 3 Emergency Response Contractors for the Illinois EPA.
Over the years, Bodine Environmental has been involved in a wide variety of remedial activities involving both the design and implementation of remedial plans. Frequently Bodine engineers, geologists, environmental chemists and project managers work with the client to determine the optimal remedial technique. Included in this would be in-situ and ex-situ soil treatment, bioremediation, pumping and treatment of contaminated groundwater, dual phase SVE, soil fracturing and phytoremediation.
Bodine’s waste transportation division provides waste sampling and characterization, along with bulk and drum waste pickup. Spill kits, DOT approved drums and a wide variety of absorbent materials are available as are lab pack services and disposal of florescent lamps and electronic components. Bodine’s fleet of vacuum tankers, frac tanks, vacuum boxes, roll-off containers, trailers, semis and excavation equipment allow clients one-stop-shopping for most environmental projects.
Mike Severns, President of Bodine Environmental and Bodine Services said “For a business to stand the test of time it must have a team of dedicated employees who are focused on client satisfaction. At Bodine Environmental, we want to take the occasion to thank not only our many clients, but also the outstanding team of professionals who work diligently on their behalf.”
