Headquartered in Great River, N.Y., with regional offices throughout the U.S. and internationally, NRC has approximately 765 employees.

RK is a specialty environmental and industrial services contractor in the Northern California and Nevada region of the United States. The Company is headquartered in Truckee, Calif. and as part of the transaction now has a branch office in Reno, Nev.

Steve Candito, CEO of NRC, commented, “The RK acquisition is an excellent addition to NRC and a highly complementary fit. We look forward to expanding our presence and capabilities in the Northern California and Nevada markets to better serve our existing customers as well as the broader marketplace in this region. We look forward to working closely with RK’s management team to grow the combined organization.”

NRC was acquired in March 2012 by investment affiliates of J.F. Lehman & Company, a middle-market private equity firm focused on the defense, aerospace and maritime sectors.
