VLS Recovery, a leading provider of specialty cleaning and waste processing services, today announced that it has acquired Beauchan Rail Services, a provider of high-quality railcar cleaning and product transfer services. The acquisition adds two highly-strategic locations to VLS’s existing railcar cleaning network. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Based in Friendswood, Texas, Beauchan Rail Services provides broad-based railcar cleaning and product transfer services as well as a wide spectrum of customized and turnkey services. Beauchan’s two locations east of Houston provide VLS with direct access to the Union Pacific, BNSF and PTRA rail networks.
“The Beauchan team has built an attractive specialty rail services business, and we are excited to add their service offerings, access to rail lines and strong customer base to the VLS network,” said Michael Dilick, Chief Executive Officer of VLS. “We look forward to working alongside Aurora to invest and expand the services, processes and capabilities at each Beauchan site while continuing to pursue our buy and build strategy across the broader VLS platform.”
