San Diego, Calif. (January 2016) —Environmental Business Journal® (EBJ), a business research publication which provides high value strategic business intelligence to the environmental industry*, has honored 56 companies for revenue growth, acquisitions, innovative project designs, technology applications, new practice areas, social contributions and industry leadership in 2015.
Cascade Drilling is pleased to announce that it was chosen to receive the EBJ Gold Medal Award for Business Achievement: Mid-size Firms and the award for Business Achievement: Mergers & Acquisitions.
“In what is widely regarded as a stable market, a number of companies exceeded the norms of low single-digit growth with double-digit growth or ambitious ventures into new practice areas or technology development,” said Grant Ferrier, president of Environmental Business International Inc. (EBI, San Diego), publisher of Environmental Business Journal.
Cascade was recognized in the Mid-size Firm category for growing revenue from $26 million in 2010, and $103 million in 2014, to an estimated $200 million in 2015 and earning the number 87 spot in Engineering News-Record’s ranking of top 200 environmental firms, a jump of 39 places. Founded in 1991, Cascade Drilling has grown from a specialized regional drilling provider to a national, full service provider for site investigation, remediation and drilling. Cascade’s workforce has grown from 5 to more than 850 employees.
The company received additional recognition in the Mergers & Acquisition category for its aggressive growth strategy and completing five acquisitions in 2015 to provide geographic coverage and logistical support for clients across the United States and enhance its fleet of drill rigs, support vehicles and specialty equipment. The company’s growth strategy also focused on patented, leading edge technology offering clients a wide range of integrated, in situ remediation technologies and field services for the cost effective cleanup of contaminated soil and groundwater.
