In 1998, Kevin Jackson founded Envirovac with one vacuum truck, one hydro blaster, three employees and two clients: Union Camp (now International Paper) and Kemira (now Tronox). Today, Envirovac is the largest provider of industrial cleaning and environmental services in the Southeast and boasts 750 employees across 12 locations in six states.

Since its inception, the Savannah-based industrial cleaning company experienced a rapid upward trajectory of sales, hitting its first year of $10 million in revenue by 2005 and going on to report earnings of $55.7 million in 2014 (with estimated earnings of $59.3 million by 2016). The company provides 750 jobs, of which include 486 full-time positions and 99% civilian-based, across 12 locations in six states.

Jackson, a graduate of the University of Georgia and member of the 1980 National Championship Football Team, knew the company’s public relations efforts needed to keep pace with its explosive growth. As a result, he called on Abshire Public Relations for assistance. To date, APR has helped keep Envirovac’s good work in local and regional press, announcing new personnel and company awards, as well as successfully nominating Jackson for the 2015 Entrepreneur of the Year award from the Savannah Chamber of Commerce.
