What counts as NEWS @ JAM Environmental & Vacuum Services, LLC
In January JAM Environmental was not planning on significant growth in equipment, projects or revenues and we were looking forward to spending 2014 in deviling deeper into our core operations. Instead, the first six months saw us grow revenues 42% over last year, we purchased two more vacuum trucks including a Vactor 2100 mounted on a crew cab Stirling with a Roots 824 Blower and we acquired a 2,200 gallon Ford cab over vacuum truck with a drum deck, water reservoir and a high pressure and volume water blaster. We also expanded our service trucks with two F-350’s, two 2014 – F-250’s, several trailers and additional support equipment. We just completed a two month, 7 day a week 30,000 yard excavation utilizing a shaker screen to reuse the soil and a 6 acre dewatering system. Overall, an amazing start to the year.
JAM Environmental had a Fast and Furious year of growth in 2013. We ended the year with 25 full time employees, 39 trucks/trailers and heavy equipment, revenue growth of 56% and most important – No Significant Lost Time Injuries. Our excavation and remediation crews dug 80,000 tons of material on various projects. We had several significant demolition projects, Industrial wastewater transportation and disposal projects and significant growth in the used oil division. Overall, 2013 was a Fantastic Year, thanks to our Employees and our Customers.
JAM Environmental is pleased to announce our new HR Management and Employee Training System. Partnering with our payroll processing company JAM now has dedicated professional staff to handle all our Human Resource and related Legal Requirements. Additionally, we now have launched a fully on-line employee training system consisting of over 130 safety and health related programs. This will allow a smaller company like us to provide in-depth, professionally managed, regulatory compliant system that meets and exceeds industry standards. Our existing in-house system was effective and adequate however it required substantial in-house effort to maintain. Our new system after the initial investment of time and resources will allow us to quickly and accurately ensure the highest industry standards for Employee Training and Human Resources Support.
April 2013 – Biggest News Yet !
JAM Environmental & Vacuum Services is very excited to announce that Florida Power and Light Company awarded JAM the Primary Remediation Contract for the Port Everglades Power Center Re-construction Project. FPL is demolishing the oil / natural gas fired, 1,200 MW, four unit Port Everglades Plant and replacing them with new Combined Cycle Natural Gas Units that will provide 2,400 MW. The plant originally constructed in the late 1950’s and commissioned from 1961 to 1964 was the backbone of the FPL system for many decades; she reliably provided power until the very end of 2012. Our project will be to remediate the 90 acres of the No 6 oil tank farm and the power block. Additionally we will support the removal of the dedicated pipelines at the Port Everglades docks. Overall, this is the largest single contract in our short history and will require significant effort, growth and management to accomplish safely. We Accept and Look Forward to the Challenges of 2013 and 2014.

Overall, JAM now fields a diverse fleet of 32 units consisting of Used Oil Collection Trucks, VacCon’s, Industrial Vacuum Loaders, Tankers, Tractors, flatbed and utility trailers, service trucks, utility trucks, excavators and one pontoon boat for on water support.
