Ambipar – the leader in environmental management – has recently acquired Enviroclear, emergency response and industrial services company based in the UK. The initiative expands the company’s operations in the British and European markets and is part of its global expansion plan. The company now acquired is headquartered in Wrexham, Wales, and has three operating bases in the country.
According to Thiago Silva, Ambipar’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO), “the acquisition is aligned with the company’s strategic objectives of providing its clients with a global emergency response structure. Furthermore, the geographical expansion and offer of services in the British and European territory seek not only to provide such services with standardization and excellence but also to capture the synergy of a single response center for the industry and all transportation modals.”
Ambipar´s goal is to continue its worldwide expansion through acquisitions. By 2020, Ambipar had already completed the purchase of other emergency response companies in the United States: Allied International Emergency, One Stop Environmental, IntraCoastal and CES.
In Brazil, the company invests in organic growth by opening new business offices. Recently, it announced the purchase of AFC Soluções Ambientais, aiming to expand services in Northeastern Brazil. The company specializes in total waste management with operations focused on the region.
With 25 years’ experience in the British market in the segment of emergency response and industrial services, Enviroclear has three operating bases, all in Wales, as well as a team with the know-how to respond to emergencies. It holds ISO 9001, 14001, 18001 and 45001 certifications and is accredited by the UK Spill Association. In 2020, the company achieved revenues of £10.4 million.

A benchmark in the environmental management market, Ambipar is formed by two pillars – Ambipar Environment and Ambipar Response – and provides integrated sustainability-based and environment-respectful solutions.
The company has an RD&I laboratory that develops waste-derived technologies and innovations. Being an owner of several registered patents for sustainable products, Ambipar promotes the circular economy and assists companies with the correct disposal of their waste. Among its main innovations, stand out: the animal feed made from shrimp remains that had been dumped into the sea; the sustainable softener produced from the cosmetics industry waste; and the collagen-based soap developed from the pharmaceutical industry waste.
Ambipar went public in July 2020, becoming the first environmental management company to enter the B3, the Brazilian stock exchange.
Ambipar holds certifications by the ISO (9001, 14001, 45001 and 22320) and by Brazil’s Health, Safety, Environment and Quality Assessment System (SASSMAQ), and complies with the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) standards.
