NORWELL, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 20, 2015--Clean Harbors, Inc. announced that it will substantially increase its focus on blended oil opportunities within its Oil Re-refining and Recycling segment and, as part of this effort, create a separate business within that segment.
Jerry E. Correll
has been appointed President of this new business.
“Jerry will oversee the transition of recycling and re-refining from a business that produces a majority of base oil to one that manufactures many products from our recycling and re-refining process,” Mr. McKim said. “Near-term, Jerry and his newly reorganized team also will work to protect and expand our margins by implementing a number of strategies, such as the recent Zero Pay rate structure change for its purchase of used engine and industrial oils, and by lowering overall transportation costs.
“Since the purchase of Safety-Kleen, our objective has been to significantly increase the percentage of blended products in the re-refinery business,” Mr. McKim said. “Today’s announcement reflects our intention to accelerate that transition. Under Jerry’s leadership, we hope to realize higher returns from this business, further differentiate the EcoPower brand, increase the sustainability of our re-refining profits and distance ourselves from the inherent volatility of the base oil market.”
Mr. Correll joined Clean Harbors in 2002, in conjunction with the Company’s acquisition of Safety-Kleen’s Chemical Services Division. He has held a number of management positions at Clean Harbors, including Senior Vice President, Sales, for Environmental Services. Prior to joining the Company, Mr. Correll served in various sales and operations management positions at Safety-Kleen, including Senior Vice President, Sales; Vice President, Corporate Accounts; and Regional Vice President – Central U.S. Operations. He was named President of Safety-Kleen in April 2013.
