The United States, and in fact most of the developed world, is now fully cognizant of the need to be better stewards of our planet. For most people, the concept of waste disposal tends to run in two interesting, but opposed directions based on “scope”. On one hand, you have the daily discard of refuse, which we consider our daily garbage. Then on the other hand, we tend to think in wider brush strokes, such as saving the planet through reduced emissions. But in between these two extremes, there is both enormous needs and vast opportunity.
Allow yourself to ponder for a moment. Where does the test vial go when the nurse finishes with your blood test? Where does the gasoline, oil, radiator fluid, transmission fluid and gear lube go, when a vehicle is involved in an overturn accident? Who neutralizes the household hazardous waste stream, when your township collects mercury filled lightbulbs, or acid filled batteries? Who transports the insect control chemicals when they have exceeded their potency dates? Where do the half filled paint cans go that are separated at the local landfill?
Many times they go to Amerex. Amerex, is a publicly traded company that services the need and provides the opportunity. Amerex, through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, operates as a hazardous waste transportation and logistics company, primarily in south central United States. The Company is versed in such remedies as Hazardous and non-hazardous treatment, storage and disposal, transportation, storage and processing all types of regulated and non regulated wastes, emergency response, Environmental consulting, and a host of other waste management related services.
Growing quickly but solidly through carefully aligned acquisitions, Amerex’s management brings years of hands on experience in the waste solutions field. And oh what a field it’s become. The proper disposal of household, medical and industrial waste has literally exploded in the past 30 years. The United States Enviromental Protection agency has this to say about it, “American industrial facilities generate and must dispose of approximately 7.6 billion tons of industrial solid waste each year.” This is up exponentially from just 20 years ago.
But along with the simple demand from population growth, combined with the growth in consumable products, the push for living “green” is giving the waste management companies an extra revenue boost. If one examines the demand, and compares it to the amount of properly licensed waste management companies, one thing becomes startlingly clear. Demand is running ahead of companies that are qualified to satisfy it.
Amerex stands out as a prime candidate to satisfy a large portion of that demand, and in doing so, provides an excellent revenue and profit stream. The CEO, Nicholas Malino brings a background to the company table that’s hard for an investor to ignore. His last venture in the waste management arena found him as CEO of a national environmental engineering firm that was publicly traded, which grew from $9,000,000 in annual revenue to $160,000,000 in annual revenue in his six-year tenure. Experience such as that, is immeasurably valuable and simply can’t be taught in school.
The world is going green, and Amerex will help it get there. While still in it’s infancy, intelligent investors may just wish to keep a watchful eye on this one.
