About Colfax Corporation

Premier Environmental Remediation Company

Colfax Corporation is the Midwest’s premier environmental remediation company licensed and certified to perform asbestos removal, lead abatement, mold removal and selective demolition. Over 3,000 projects have been completed since incorporation in 1985. These projects include everything from a small scale-single day operation to year long contracts that involve multiple phases, occupied spaces and specialized abatement techniques. The types of buildings include office towers, banks, industrial plants, refineries, hospitals, schools, government facilities, churches and residential structures. While most work is performed as a prime contractor, much subcontract work has been performed for some of Chicagoland’s most prominent general contractors.

Every customer benefits from the extensive experience of Colfax Corporation’s on site supervision and workers who are fully trained and experienced in the work they perform. On average, our supervisors have more than 20 years of experience in supervising environmental remediation work. From smaller remediation challenges to complex, turnkey projects that may involve an expansive team and take years to complete, Colfax supervisors have hands-on experience with every step of the remediation task.

All supervisors and workers maintain current licensing from the Illinois Department of Public Health, training certification approved by the EPA and medical surveillance documentation. No employee is permitted to work on any project without valid paperwork. This ensures every client of a qualified and competent crew to perform the necessary work.
