American Pollution Control Corp. (AMPOL) has been selected by the National Response Corporation (NRC) to store and maintain a large stock of NRC Emergency Response Equipment.
Previously owned by Seacor Marine, NRC was purchased by an investment company and subsequently in need of a place to relocate their equipment. NRC chose to house their equipment in AMPOL’s New Iberia, La., facility, increasing AMPOL’s emergency response equipment inventory to one of the largest stored in the South and maintained by a privately held company.
Equipment stored and maintained by AMPOL includes portable barges, skimmers, boom, boom rollers, anchors, hoses and a fire boom.
"Having this additional inventory of emergency response equipment on-site and ready to use increases AMPOL's total response resources," said AMPOL President and CEO Kirk Headley. "Our recent facility expansion and other upgrades have allowed us to acquire and store additional equipment to be ready at a moment's notice if a need arises."
