In 1997 we started as an internet-based consulting firm, environmental-help.com, to provide consulting services across the United States and abroad. Through this firm we gained experience in putting together teams of experts to provide regulatory and technical advice to local companies, and to design pollution control equipment to be built by local firms; hence our trademark, Global knowledge, local solutions ®.
In 2008, Advanced Environmental Management Group, LLC, formerly known as Environmental Permit Specialists, LLC (EPS), and generally known as AEM Group, was granted the Small Business Administration's Small Disadvantaged Business 8(a) status.
In 2014, AEM Group formed an SBA-approved 8(a) Mentor-Protégé Joint-Venture Agreement with O'Brien & Gere Engineering, Inc. This joint venture has increased AEM Group's capacity to obtain and complete large national contracts for compliance and natural resources services.
Types of customers
We have worked with many different types of industries: companies that produce chemicals and other basic products such as plastics, computer components, asphalt, cement, steel, aluminum, adhesives; companies that modify materials through surface coating, heat treating, electroplating, and chemical blending; and general manufacturers who produce finished goods.
We have worked with companies who primarily recycle and reuse materials: secondary metal recovery and rolling stock rehabilitation.
Types of projects
We have developed and administered environmental management systems, prepared air and water permit applications, developed pollution incident prevention plans, prepared risk management plans, conducted environmental site assessments, assisted with remediation projects, and provided general technical advice on attaining and maintaining environmental compliance.
We have worked with some of our customers to close the loop in manufacturing processes, moving towards zero-discharge of chemicals, improved sustainability, and finding markets for materials that would otherwise become waste.
