Elastec Manufacturing Capabilities

WHO WE ARE

Elastec – Est. 1990

Established in 1990 with the invention of an oleophilic drum skimmer, Elastec is the largest manufacturer of oil spill recovery equipment in North America. Our full line of skimmers, oil containment booms, dispersant application systems, work boats, response trailers, vacuum systems, portable incinerators and accessories are operated in over 155 countries. Total sales range from $15 to $30 million with 50% in exports. Elastec is a 100% employee owned company supported by over 100 administrative and manufacturing employees with a passion to keep our world clean.

American Marine – Est. 1967

The first oil containment boom, insitu fire boom and turbidity curtain were created by American Marine in 1967. An extruded aluminum quick-connect system was developed to join the floats and survives today as one of two industry standards. Elastec officially acquired American Marine in 1997 and the two companies merged in 2012. The floating boom, baffle and barrier division remains an integral asset in the control and containment of oil spills, trash, debris, silt, invasive aquatic weeds and marine species to keep our waterways clean.

Who We Serve

Our customers are stewards of water. In the government sector, they are Coast Guards around the world who defend our borders and protect the maritime environment. They are the municipalities who clean our water for drinking and to create electricity with hydro dams to power our homes and businesses.

In the private sector, they are the emergency response organizations who are specially trained to recover oil spills, chemical releases and other hazardous materials. They are the civil engineers who design our waste and stormwater infrastructure, and construction companies who dredge to facilitate waterborne navigation. Some are volunteers who share our passion to keep our waterways free from trash, debris, chemicals, sediment and drugs. A client list is available on request.

Elastec has a core competency in the manufacture of oil spill recovery equipment. We are a vertically integrated company meaning that we have control of resource material and the flexibility to manage engineering and production processes to meet, and exceed, customer expectations. This capability also allows us to quickly supply the proper equipment for emergency spill incidents. Elastec is guided by the requirements of the U.S. Oil Pollution Act and the Clean Water Act and a respect for our greatest natural resource – clean water.
