Tervita Launch Offers A New Brand and A New Vision for Sustainable Resource Development

CCS Corporation unites former business units and $5+ billion in revenues into new company

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 14, 2012) - One of North America's leading environmental and energy service companies today became stronger by uniting more than a dozen business units under Tervita Corporation - a dynamic new brand committed to sustaining the life, health and energy of the planet by supporting responsible resource development.

Tervita has been known for the past 25 years by the brands of our predecessor companies: CCS Corporation, Hazco, Concord, Beck, HMI, Prodrill and seven others. This launch heralds the beginning of a new era under a single brand for the privately-held company with $5+ billion in revenues.

"By joining together our individual expertise, experience, assets and services, we will be uniquely positioned to develop integrated project management solutions and provide our customers easier access to our comprehensive range of services," said John Gibson, Tervita President and Chief Executive Officer.

Collectively, Tervita offers the natural resources and industrial sectors a comprehensive suite of services covering every stage of the production lifecycle, from development to reclamation. Through its fluids services, solids services, production services, energy marketing and reclamation offerings, Tervita helps its clients minimize impacts and maximize returns.

"Our vision is to create a better future by growing our global leadership in environmental and energy solutions," Gibson said. "We're developing new technologies and processes to address today's challenges such as water treatment, tailings management and reclamation.

"And in this tightening labour market we're becoming known as a company with a strong corporate culture. Our 4,200 employees are proud of our work, our values and our sense of purpose. In 2011, we hired more than 2,000 employees and we expect our dynamic growth to continue in 2012."

The idea to transition the company to a single brand surfaced long ago, but was developed and delivered in the last 12 months.

"This is a vision that I've had for years, that we should be one brand and one company with one culture," said David Werklund, Tervita's Chairman and Founder.

"This is a compelling moment for us as a team as we've solidified our purpose, to help customers maximize production and minimize environmental impact. For all of us at Tervita, earth matters."


The brand reflects the company's shared commitment to the Earth's energy and its environment. The name Tervita comes from the Latin words "terra," meaning earth, and "vita," meaning life. The glowing orange circle of the logo symbolizes energy from the Earth's core, while the green circle represents the Earth, our healthy planet.
