Welcome, Rick Welsh!

Not-So-New Face Around ASTI: Welcome, Richard Welsh!

Rick came to ASTI all the way from Magnolia, Texas to lead our Property Services Group. Rick started in January to provide some overlap, and by now most of you have met him. Rick is an Environmental Professional, a Certified Project Manager, and a Diplomate of the American Board of Toxicology with over 25 years of experiences in assessment and remediation. Although we hope he never encounters the situation, Rick is also trained in Helicopter Underwater Egress! (Not sure what that is? Click Here)

With his cross-country move, he looks forward to rediscovering all of the beauty that Michigan has to offer, because he actually grew up in Michigan and is planning on many trips to his family home in Traverse City. Join us as we welcome Rick to ASTI, and welcome back another native son! 

Onto The Next Chapter: George Kandler Retires

George Kandler.JPG

For over 33 years, ASTI has provided environmental assessment and redevelopment services to business and governments across the country and overseas. For most of those years, George Kandler has been a big part of ASTI's commitment to deliver the highest quality product in the industry. But, after 43 years in the environmental business, George retired at the end of May. He will continue to work with ASTI on special projects, but he will undoubtedly be devoting more time to carpentry, fishing, and rebuilding his boat. While we're sad that he won't be around the office as much, we're happy for his transition to family time and the opportunity to officially unplug (a rare and fine thing these days)...

To continue to provide the same great service and creative solutions you have come to expect, Rick Welsh (810-599-6296, rwelsh@asti-env.com) joined us last January to transition into George's position. Of course, Anthony Spencer (810-599-7927, aspencer@asti-env.com) and Brian Kuberski (810-599-8426, bkuberski@asti-env.com) our seasoned Team Leaders for Phase I ESAs and Phase II Investigations, respectively, will continue to be project managers. If they have been your primary contact, that will not change.

The Grant will help fund an extensive project along the Kalamazoo River to stabilize an eroding streambank and prevent further erosion. Without intervention, continued river-related erosion may pose future concerns for Perrigo Company plc’s North American Headquarters, which sits atop a bluff along the River. The grant is the second largest award for hazard assistance ever granted in Michigan.
