Envac in North America

Envac has been involved in engineering, installation, and operation of systems across the Americas for decades. However, it was only in 2022, after the acquisition of Precision AirConvey, that we established an official North American office. This move formalized our commitment to bringing Envac technology to the US and Canada and introducing the design and implementation of next-generation, resource-efficient waste handling systems. Through the establishment of valuable business relationships, we aim to create healthier healthcare facilities, smarter cities, improve quality-of-life today, and help secure a greener planet for future generations. Our vision is to achieve this by implementing sustainable waste management practices which reduce carbon footprints, optimize resource utilization, and promote environmental conservation.
