History

Christopher Coffey was a pioneer in the radon mitigation industry as one of the first professionals to participate in the EPA’s Radon Contractor Proficiency Program.

Real estate professional Jamey Gelina recognized the demand for a radon reduction company committed to the needs of the real estate industry. Within the next few years, SWAT expanded its service area throughout the state of Michigan. SWAT Environmental maintains this vision in providing realtors with affordable and effective radon mitigation services for their clients.

In 2005, SWAT Environmental began its nationwide expansion by providing service to the neighboring Midwest states of Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, and Wisconsin. This growth was facilitated by the development of proprietary technology that allows SWAT representatives to accurately quote the price on the installation of radon mitigation systems for most properties, site unseen. This scalable business model allowed for growth using accumulated radon mitigation data along with known codes and standards for mitigation established by each individual state of operation.

SWAT Environmental, headquartered in Lansing, MI, ranked 13th on INC’s environmental industry list and was the first radon mitigation company to be included in INC’s annual list of America’s 5000 Fastest Growing Companies. At this time, SWAT had expanded into 26 states and employed over 100 representatives and technicians.

Nate Nowicki purchased the first SWAT Environmental franchise serving the state of Colorado. He has since expanded his service area into Utah.

SWAT Environmental was once again listed among the 5000 fastest growing companies in the US. The company ranked #1841 overall as well as #17 among the top 100 environmental services companies.

Aaron and Katherine Fisher of Breinigsville, PA purchased the Pennsylvania franchise in February 2013. The franchise is headquartered in Fogelsville, PA with a branch office located in Pittsburgh. SWAT of Pennsylvania currently employs 13 radon mitigation technicians statewide as well as a sales and administrative team in the Lehigh Valley.
