MSRC, Clean Bay Merge

Monday, January 05, 2004
The Marine Spill Response Corporation (MSRC) and Clean Bay Inc. announce the merger of the two organizations’ California-based assets effective January 1, 2004. The merged organization will operate as the California Region under the MSRC structure with their principal regional offices located in Concord, California. The merger combines the personnel and resources of both organizations into one locally operated organization, and provides access to MSRC’s considerable national resources in the event of a large incident. According to MSRC President Steve Benz, “We are pleased to now provide a seamless spill response system in the Bay area that will further enhance efforts in the event of an oil spill.” Steve Ricks, former President of Clean Bay, and now MSRC Vice President for the California Region, added that “By combining these two organizations, we have brought the strongest response capabilities in this area under one company, with readiness to protect the sensitive California coastal environment.” MSRC, founded in 1990, is a national not-for-profit response company which owns and operates a fleet of dedicated Oil Spill Response Vessels, ocean going barges, shallow water skimming systems, other response equipment and enhanced communications capabilities throughout the United States East, Gulf, and West Coasts, the U.S. Caribbean, the Hawaiian Islands and the Mid-continent region. MSRC is funded by the Marine Preservation Association (MPA), a member-supported, not-for-profit organization created in 1990 to assist the petroleum and energy-related industries by addressing problems caused by oil spills on water. An MPA member is eligible to enter into a contract with MSRC that provides direct, immediate access to MSRC resources. Clean Bay, founded in 1971, represented the largest spill response organization in the Bay area, providing services to the refining and transportation industries.
