Over 30 years ago, NorthStar was founded to provide environmental abatement services to the northeast United States. Today, NorthStar has a nationwide branch network that generates over $600 million in annual sales and completes over 7,500 project each year.
By the early 1990’s, NorthStar had grown to seven offices and established its national presence. At that time NorthStar began to implement its diversification strategy through several tuck-in acquisitions that strengthened its national footprint and service capability for national clients.
By expanding service offerings to a broad range of remediation services and adding deconstruction and facility response capabilities including decontamination & decommissioning, infection control, fireproofing, and emergency and disaster response, NorthStar quickly became the nation’s leading facility services contractor.
NorthStar acquired two specialty companies – Pioneer Maintenance & Erectors, a millwright and rigging company headquartered in Pennsauken, New Jersey and Randolph Construction Services, a specialized design-build contractor headquartered in Pasco, Washington. Pioneer offers its capabilities for installing complex mechanical systems and equipment dismantlement support, respectively, with emphasis in baggage handling systems at the nation’s airports. Randolph is capable of delivering one-of-a-kind industrial, commercial and federal facilities both domestically and abroad. NorthStar provides design-build services primarily to the Federal Government through the Government Services Administration, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of Energy with an emphasis in border security facilities.
In early 2014 NorthStar combined with NCM Group to grow revenue and further expand its national footprint to the northwest, southwest and southeast United States. NorthStar acquired WRS Infrastructure and Environment in late 2014 to expand environmental remediation service capabilities.
