Business Overview:

With coast-to-coast clients, this company can be located anywhere and is 100% recession proof! Established in 1986 and based out of Hershey, Pennsylvania, this business determines the bacteria needed for wastewater treatment facilities to optimize their process or correct a problem. Troubleshooting municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants throughout the country, they decide what exact product/bacteria is needed for the health of the plant; if a plant has a limited amount of bacteria, they are not able to function as well as they possibly could, resulting in the need for the biological process to be improved. After determining the best product for their customer, this company establishes a quantity and treatment schedule for the plant and places the order with the manufacturer. The manufacturer then dropships the order directly to the treatment plant, at which point this company invoices them. The team consists of the owner, who provides general oversight of the business, along with an office manager and 2 sales reps, one of whom lives in New York state. They rent a small office space for $1,025 per month, but this business could run out of a person’s home if desired.

The products are available in a dry powder or liquid form – the customer is charged by the pound or gallon. Prices vary depending on the complexity of the product. A typical municipal plant product ranges from $16-$23 per pound, whereas a more specialized product, such as one that eliminates ammonia, can run up to $90 per pound.

Wastewater treatment facilities are always going to exist, regardless of the state of the economy or political climate. As plants become bigger, discharge limits become stricter and the need for bacteria increases. Truly a recession-proof business, there is substantial room for growth if an internet presence is developed, and technological advances are harnessed.
