An affiliate of QualaWash Holdings, LLC, a portfolio company of Roark Capital and North America’s leader in bulk transportation container cleaning, acquired Gator Environmental & Rentals, Inc., a Port Allen, LA-based provider of waste water collection, transportation and disposal services in the Gulf Coast region.
The amount of the deal was not disclosed. Gator represents the 9th acquisition by Quala since 2012, expanding the company’s presence to more than 60 locations in the U.S. Based in Tampa, Florida, and led by Mike Bauer, CEO, Quala provides tank trailer cleaning, ISO container depot services and IBC cleaning, testing and reconditioning services.
Its national network of tank wash and waste water treatment facilities is comprised of over 60 locations in the U.S. and Canada.

Gator will continue to operate under its own brands, but will now leverage in-house Quala waste water treatment capabilities in both existing and new markets.
