Tradebe is pleased to announce that First Response, a Tradebe Company, (FRATCO), will be rebranded to Tradebe Environmental Services, LLC, (TES) as of May 1, 2018. In the upcoming months, the current FRATCO logo will be replaced with the Tradebe logo – on equipment, vehicles, forms, invoices, etc. Tradebe Environmental Services, LLC will become the billing entity as of May 1, 2018, subcontracting FRATCO to perform services.

This consolidation of our service offerings under one company, TES, ensures a streamlined experience for customers and other partners – contracting, safety, compliance and invoicing – all under one name. This change will have no impact on services, transporter information or facility name and does not represent an ownership change. TES continues to be the parent company of FRATCO.

Rebranding FRATCO will enable us to leverage efficiencies and gain synergies throughout the FRATCO and Tradebe operations”, says Jeff Beswick, CEO Tradebe USA. “This further positions TRADEBE for additional growth in the industrial services sector in the Southeast and especially TN and surrounding states.”

FRATCO, previously First Response Environmental Group, (FREG), has provided environmental services to the South-eastern US since 1994. FRATCO service lines include Emergency Response, Industrial Services, Remediation, Demolition and Abatement, and Non-hazardous Waste Water Treatment. In March 2017, TES completed the purchase of FREG, now known as FRATCO, becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tradebe Environmental Services, LLC.
