At HEPA Environmental Services, we’ve built a name for ourselves as a leader in asbestos, mold, lead, and hazardous waste removal and abatement. Whether the project is industrial, commercial, or residential, our highly trained employees are experts who know how to handle hazardous materials safely and are focused on doing the job right. We pay attention to the unique needs of every project and are focused on providing customer service your grandfather would be proud of throughout Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
We’re all about “Making commitments and keeping them!” That means we make a promise to you about when and where we will show up and how the work will be done, and then we do it! We take great pride in meeting or exceeding your expectations.
My name is Rick Kuhlman, and in 2004 I had two kids, a wife, bills to pay, and I had just lost my job. Needless to say, I was nervous, but I remembered a guy I used to work with, Vince DeLuca, who had said to give him a call if I ever needed a job. Vince’s background was in mechanical engineering, and he had built manufacturing facilities around the world. My degree was in Oceanography, and with little call for that in Ohio, I focused on environmental hazmat work and had been Vice President of an environmental company specializing in asbestos abatement.
I decided to call Vince, and we made plans to meet for lunch. During that meeting, he introduced me to two more guys, Bill DeLuca and Lee Good. Bill was enjoying retirement, and Lee was running his own successful engineering business.
We combined our efforts, and our idea was simple: we were going to start an asbestos abatement company that was fair, honest, and gave great customer service. We would grow conservatively and always keep our eye on the ball. It worked!
Now 20+ years later, the business has expanded, and I am the sole owner. I still talk to my original partners often, and I cannot thank them enough for their mentoring and wisdom. I am very pleased with our progress, and we have a plan in place for the future. I believe we are successful because we are different. We will always treat our customers with the respect that they deserve. We are an honest and determined team that is never too busy to listen to you or share a laugh.
Some companies think that customers are only focused on finding the cheapest price, but I know customers expect more from us. I will continue with the original plan of building relationships while making sure that customers are satisfied with the work that’s been done. At HEPA Environmental Services, we remain committed to our promise of “Making commitments and keeping them!”
After all these years, our first client is still with us. Relationships like that just don’t work unless there is trust and dedication to customer service. Give us a call and experience the difference today!
Thanks for the work,
Rick Kuhlman, President
