Leaders for Environmental Containment


Environmental Specialties International, Inc. (ESI) is the leading geosynthetic installation contractor in the United States to the municipal solid waste, hazardous waste, power, oil & gas, mining, water, agriculture, and other related industries. We serve customers in the private, municipal, and federal market sectors throughout the United States and internationally.

Founded in 1996 by former employees of National Seal (a former geosynthetic liner manufacturer), ESI initially provided contracted liner installation for local customers in the solid waste market.

Since our founding, our business has grown dramatically to become the largest geosynthetic material supply and installation contractor in the United States.  Our company has installed nearly 2 BILLION square feet of geosynthetic materials, involving more than 2,000 projects in all 50 states.

As an additional service we also fabricate, install and provide design service support for High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic pipe systems used for the supply/drainage of water, leachate and gas for the solid waste, petrochemical and industrial applications.

We operate in the civil engineering world, among leading private companies and public entities, and serve the solid waste (non- & hazardous), power, oil & gas, mining, water and other related industries.

ESI is founded on long-standing relationships with a dedicated commitment to safety, a consistent performance record and an disciplined operational focus on quality.   It is the reason why the companies who helped start our business continue to be valued customers today.
