In 1993 a University of Michigan student interned for a young Western Michigan University environmental professional in a new and quickly growing industry. In a few short years, Jeff Heydanek developed a business plan and convinced Scott Staber that venturing out on their own was the right thing to do. With Jeff’s youthful energy and business prowess combined with Scott’s affinity to sales and a few contacts, the plan went into action on October 6, 1995. In the few decades since beginning in a 60 sf basement office in Canton, Michigan, J. Scott Environmental (Jeff & Scott) has grown into a multi-million dollar environmental consulting, testing and technical company, servicing all of Michigan and the Midwest. Arch Environmental Group (AEG) is uniquely structured to handle a wide variety of your environmental needs and concerns – in fact, we have diversified over these years in a manner to “bridge your environmental needs”. To this day we work hard to be large enough to handle all of your environmental concerns, yet not lose the small business personal care you have come to expect from us. The following summary details three critical business components of AEG: services offered, professional staffing and market sector.
