ACA History

ACA incorporated in March of 1984. At that time, ACA was one of a handful of progressive firms in the asbestos abatement business, and certainly one of the few in the Metropolitan New York market. From this humble beginning in a one-room office in Yonkers, New York, ACA began the implementation of sound business principles through its “Committed to Excellence”. This corporate ethic has enabled ACA to grow tenfold over the next few decades and become one of the premier environmental remediation firms in the Metropolitan New York marketplace. From the beginning in 1984 and continuing until today, ACA has stayed far ahead of the curve of the New York City and New York State Asbestos Regulations. We have aligned ourselves with the finest Hygienists, Architects and Engineers who were and continue to be the creators of the most stringent project specifications.

ACA’s founding philosophy was to be of service to distinguished clientele; clientele who demand exceptional service from their contractors. These are companies that have valuable real estate, companies that have valuable brands, and companies that worry about liability. This continued committed passion of providing exemplary service and implementing sound business practice is what has allowed ACA to weather the fast-paced changes in the environmental business in the last three decades. We are proud to be in the very elite group of companies that have over 30 years of history in this Industry. With the same management team, we have grown to encompass advanced services …all while maintaining an exceptional reputation and protecting the liability of our devoted and prestigious clients.

ACA is proud of a history that has not only seen internal satisfaction from managed growth and fine leadership, but proud of the distinguished accolades we have received. ACA has been requested to participate in the advancement of the Environmental Industry through collective meetings with State and City Regulatory Agencies, have received the KPMG Peat Marwick award as one of the Top 50 Privately Held Firms in Westchester County for five consecutive years and was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year from the Small Business Administration in 1988. The best part of our history is that we remain committed each day to continuing this tradition. So, when you see our truck show up on your site with our company motto, please realize it is the company ethic that each and every one of us lives by each day…

”Committed to Excellence”
