The Company:
Elastec/American Marine manufactures and markets pollution control and oil spill response systems. The firm has ISO 9001:2008 certification and recently won an industry prize for their patented grooved disc oil skimming technology. They have also received international awards and recognition for this breakthrough technology. Instrumental in managing the controlled burn operation during the 2010 Gulf of Mexico spill, the firm’s core competency is oil spill response systems: skimmers, fire and containment booms, boom deployment systems, portable vacuum equipment, and other related equipment.
 
The Case:
Elastec/American Marine has developed several oil spill recovery systems for shallow, inland and near shore waters to protect the environment from “unscheduled petroleum decontainment.” One significant product is the .5 meter shallow BoomVane for rapid boom deployment. Another is the Rapid River Response System incorporating a Kvichak Marco Filterbelt skimmer boat, BoomVanes, OptiMax boom and a towable bladder for shallow, wide and fast watercourses.
