Under Ron’s Leadership

During its early years in business, ARC Abatement offered asbestos abatement and lead remediation. But never satisfied with remaining small, Daniel responded to marketplace demands. In the mid-90s, ARC became a natural choice for mold remediation, as insurance agencies around the nation began dealing with claims related to mold growth caused by water damage. After fielding many phone calls from insurance adjusters, Daniel responded by adding mold remediation to ARC Abatement’s list of environmental remediation services.His entrepreneurial spirit not only sparked the expansion of ARC Abatement’s environmental services but fanned into flame an acquisition and asbestos abatement company merger strategy. In 2014, he formed ARC Abatement Holding, Inc.


In 2016, Daniel launched ARC’s Industrial Division. Under the leadership of General Manager Warren Brown, ARC Industrial is the single source for industrial asbestos abatement including scaffolding for power plants, manufacturing facilities, and industrial and petrochemical companies. Completed projects include:
Daniel is also active in environmental contractor safety, education, training, and licensing. He is certified and licensed in many areas of the industry. Daniel is committed to the safety of all his employees and ensures it is a priority for all of the business operations of his asbestos abatement company.
