New Jersey Based National Environmental Engineering Firm Chosen to Assist in Waterway Debris Removal Services Stretching from Barnegat Bay to Sandy Hook Bay

Florham Park Based Matrix New World Engineering Co-Founder, Dennis Petrocelli, PG, Discusses Superstorm Sandy in Radio Interview

Florham Park, New Jersey – In response to the State of New Jersey Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for Waterway Debris Removal Services issued in early January 2013, CrowderGulf, LLC (CrowderGulf) and Matrix New World Engineering, Inc. (Matrix) joined forces again.  The CrowderGulf/Matrix team presented a competitive proposal in accordance with the State’s stringent deadline and specific requirements.  The CrowderGulf/Matrix proposal was ranked the highest by the State of New Jersey, and as a result, the team was awarded the Central Region contract.  The restoration of the Central Region is of critical economic importance to the State of New Jersey.

Based on many years of experience with disaster recovery and restoration efforts, as well as proactive and preventive measures to take for future events, CrowderGulf and Matrix clearly understand the issues confronting New Jersey and its residents in the continued recovery from the devastation of Superstorm Sandy.

CrowderGulf has been involved in every major storm clean up over the past forty years. In the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, John Ramsay, president and owner of CrowderGulf reached out to Dennis Petrocelli of Matrix, offering to assist in the recovery in any way possible. Representatives of both companies have been touring New Jersey together since October 31, 2012.

Dennis Petrocelli, PG, Senior Vice President of Matrix, stated, “After successfully assisting in the wildlife rescue and clean up efforts for the historic Deepwater Horizon Spill in the Gulf, Matrix is pleased to partner again with CrowderGulf in improving the waterways of the Central Region affected by Superstorm Sandy. We are also glad to be working with Weeks Marine of Cranford, NJ, on this significant home-state project. I grew up and was educated here, and it is very fulfilling to give back to the state.”

Mr. Petrocelli recently spoke with Bert Baron, Host, WCTC-AM radio regarding disaster clean up from Superstorm Sandy.
