Liquid Environmental Solutions Acquires Gordon’s American Waste Systems in Denver 

Acquisition adds talent, services and customers to the LES Denver Branch 

DALLAS, Texas, and DENVER, Colorado – Liquid Environmental Solutions announced the company has acquired the assets of privately held American Waste Systems, Inc., dba Gordon’s American Waste Systems – a leading provider of grease trap services in the greater Denver area.  Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Gordon’s American has been a successful service provider in the Denver metro area for decades, exclusively serving restaurant and food service locations.  These customers own grease traps or interceptors that must be serviced regularly to comply with local city and wastewater district standards that prevent sewer spills and protect the public wastewater collection system.

LES Chief Operating Officer Gene Cookson commented: “I’m pleased to welcome Gordon’s American customers and their team of service professionals to our LES Denver Operations Branch.  Our Denver team is already an outstanding group of service technicians and we continue to raise the standard for Colorado’s food service industry when it comes to their liquid waste infrastructure maintenance and environmental compliance.”  

Alan Viterbi, CEO and co-founder of LES, also commented: “With the acquisition of Gordon’s American here in Denver, we continue to grow both by acquisitions such as this one and organically. As we celebrate our fifteen year anniversary I’m proud of our team and their success building a national network of 54 service branch locations into the leading provider of non-hazardous liquid waste collection and disposal solutions.  Our industry keeps growing in large part because we continue to add best in class services and professionals to protect the water environment we all live and work in.”
