Environmental & Emergency Response Experts

Essel Environmental & Emergency Response has grown from a family business to a nationwide provider of environmental and emergency response services by making sure our values of client stewardship, being proactive and always being focused on helping our Clients get the results they need.

Our Story 

Founded in 2003 by Dr. Samhita Lahiri, Essel Environmental was founded because of the vision to provide an alternative to the corporate conglomorates.  Starting with public sector clients - Essel's expertise began by helping public sector clients protect their liability by helping manage hazarodous materials in public buildings.

As a family business - Essel always put client needs first and truly stayed focused on what is in the best interest of the Client.  This is one of our key values today as well as one of our keys to success.  Our clients are not just a number or another addition to our CRM.  Our Clients trust us to help them get one thing - Results.

Results Focused. People Based. 

By focusing on the results our clients are looking for - we built our entire business around that concept.   The Essel team has grown from a family operation in 1 office to a company with nationwide projects and a workforce of over 100 people.  Our clients span industries from real estate development, construction & emergency response.  The ways we provide value have also expanded into a versatile approach to our services.

Adding technical experts that understand the power of being proactive vs reactive - our teams success has been recognized by national organizations as one of the Inc 5000's fastest growing companies for 2 years in a row.

100 Projects vs 100 Clients

We would rather do 100 projects for 1 Client instead of 1 project for 100 clients.  This long term vision is the key piece to building trust with our clients, which starts with understanding their needs, and really helping them with not only what they need today but also what they will need next week or 4 months down the road.  This is what we call - Being Proactive vs Reactive.
