Concrete Washout Systems, Inc., a risk management specialist and industry pioneer in concrete washout and wastewater removal, treatment and recycling, announced that National Washout Services, LLC has recently begun distributing and servicing Concrete Washout Systems (CWS) in the greater Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex area.
National Washout Services is a newly formed company operating under the guidance of Michael Liston. Michael Liston is president of American Concrete Washouts, Inc., a CWS licensee, and has several operations within California.
“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to represent CWS in the great state of Texas,” stated Michael Liston, operating partner of National Washout Services, LLC. “The Texas market and specifically the Dallas/Fort Worth area, is exploding with growth, and we see ourselves positioned to offer our risk management services to builders and contractors alike with a strong team and an innovative product,” added Mr. Liston.
“We are very excited to have National Washout Services as a partner with the experience and expertise their team has to offer,” said Kevin Mickelson, vice president of Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. “The Texas market is developing at a rapid pace and is in need of risk management solutions that National will be offering. Mr. Liston has the experience and knowledge to bring everything together,” added Mr. Mickelson.
CWS is currently seeking licensed partners in numerous markets across the nation. Licensed partners will own and operate a Concrete Washout Systems business in their designated region where they will be responsible for all aspects of the business. Currently, Concrete Washout Systems has licensed partners throughout most of California, Hawaii, Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada, Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona, Denver, Colorado, Texas, Minnesota and Southeast Florida.
The patent pending CWS is a portable, self-contained and watertight bin that controls, captures and contains concrete washout material and wastewater. It allows trade personnel to easily washout concrete trucks, pumps and equipment on site and facilitates easy off site recycling of the same concrete materials and wastewater, while protecting the storm drain system from potential illegal discharges. The off site recycling component creates an even more environmentally sound application as concrete material is diverted away from landfills and recycled. This system replaces other outdated washout BMP’s, which are costly, unsightly and damaging to the environment since their containment value diminishes, due to inherently faulty material, over use and lack of maintenance.
