About the Contractor
Founded in 2004, Genesis provides industrial cleaning, including tank cleaning; certified tank inspections; industrial painting; environmental remediation and construction services for the public and private sector.
The company has worked on projects similar to the WaterOne job, but none of this size, said Mark Marmon, Coatings and Linings Manager.
“This is a rather large project, one we don’t see every day,” said Marmon.
Still, he added, WaterOne has been a client for several past projects, particularly within Genesis’s Industrial Cleaning Department, and “we’re very comfortable with the larger items in this project.”
“We’ve had a good working relationship with WaterOne for some time,” Marmon said.
Work for this project began in September and is expected to be completed by May 2012.
