NORA MEMBER TERRAPURE ENVIRONMENTAL REBRANDS AFTER SALE BY NEWALTA
Friday, September 18, 2015
On March 1, 2015, the former Industrial Division of Newalta Corporation became a new stand-alone entity called Terrapure Environmental, following Newalta’s sale of the business to Toronto-based Birch Hill Equity Partners. With a new company, new name and new branding, yet deep roots in the environmental services sector, Terrapure has a bright future ahead.
Headquartered in Burlington, Ont., Terrapure employs 900 people and operates an integrated network of over 30 government-regulated facilities from coast to coast. Under new ownership, the company continues to focus on providing innovative solutions that minimize waste and maximize the recovery or recycling of valuable industrial by-products through its facility network and on customer sites.
Included among the company’s locations is its North Vancouver used oil re-refinery, which produces over 30 million litres of products annually, including 17 million litres of Group II base oil.
Since officially coming into existence in March, the company has been busy rebranding all of its facilities and equipment with the new Terrapure badge. To help promote the new name internally, the company held a contest for its facilities to win the chance to be the first to be rebranded. The North Vancouver Facility was the winner and in late-June, held a special event to celebrate and unveil the new branding.

“While our company name has changed, the innovation and high level of service and professionalism we bring to customers has not,” said Terrapure President & CEO Todd Moser. “The values that have been deeply ingrained in our culture – including an unwavering commitment to health and safety excellence, environmental stewardship, community involvement and customer service – will ensure we are well positioned for growth and success in the future.”
