Alliance Environmental Group to revamp its indoor air services

Alliance Environmental Group in Azusa is reshaping its service portfolio.
The environmental remediation company bought a competitor in the North West last month and said by the end of the year it plans to merge three companies under its umbrella that specialize in improving indoor air quality.


Alliance acquired Thermatech Northwest Inc. in Lakewood, Washington, on undisclosed terms. Thermatech has 50 employees and specializes in mold remediation, lead paint and asbestos abatement, and healthcare infection control.


“Acquiring a business or opening a division in Washington State has been on our radar for a year,” Chief Executive Jeff McLean said in a statement, adding that “strategic alignment” will allow Alliance to “expand on the west coast”. .”


McLean and his brother Joe founded Alliance in 1995, providing asbestos removal services throughout Southern California. They added mold remediation services in 1999 and expanded to Arizona in 2016 and Nevada in 2020. The company has 712 employees, performs approximately 25,000 jobs per month, and has a fleet of over 300 vehicles. It expects to end 2021 with around $100 million in revenue, according to the company.


In 2011, Alliance acquired Airtek Indoor Air Solutions, a San Diego-based company specializing in commercial and residential HVAC and air duct cleaning. She took over Mintie Corp. in 2019, a Cypress Park-based company that provides rehabilitation and maintenance of HVAC systems, while its subsidiary Mintie Technologies develops containment products for airborne particles.


Coast Environmental, based in Carlsbad, joined the group in February. The company specializes in firestops, fire damper testing and repairs, infection control containment, kitchen exhaust system cleaning, HVAC system cleaning and refurbishment and mold remediation.


In addition to Mintie Technologies, the three companies will merge and operate as Alliance IAQ & Life Safety Services beginning in January. The new entity will continue to serve customers in the healthcare, hospitality, industrial, education, government, commercial, retail, residential and private sectors.


“Bringing the three companies together is strategic from a business perspective,” Alliance co-founder Joe McLean said in a statement. “This allows us to better serve our customer segments with the additional resources from a leadership and workforce perspective.”
