Sterling & Associates, Inc. has combined forces with EHS Partnerships Ltd., a Canadian firm based in Calgary, Alberta. Effective June 2, 2008, Sterling & Associates continues operations as usual in Northern CA, while now with the support of the growing EHS Partnerships group.

Founded in 1989 by Richard Krentz, CIH (Certified Industrial Hygienist), Sterling & Associates has gained and maintains a strong reputation in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, through its expert staffing and reliable service. Mr. Krentz and the rest of the team will continue to operate as before, with no interruptions to the high level of service Sterling & Associates’ clients have come to expect.

The merging of Sterling & Associates and EHS Partnerships will capitalize on the synergies of each entity and infuse resources, knowledge and energy into the newly combined business. “The timing is right, as the EH&S environment is bursting with new interest and excitement” says Krentz, largely as a result of the greening efforts throughout the country and the world. Both Sterling & Associates and EHS Partnerships have strong and growing experience and involvement in assisting clients with their pursuit of LEED® or other “greening” initiatives, as well as managing traditional Environmental Health & Safety concerns.

Sterling & Associates serves a wide variety of corporate facilities, manufacturing facilities, contractors, hospitals, schools, public agencies, and Biotech firms requiring assistance with Industrial Hygiene, Fungi Evaluations, Indoor Air Quality investigations and maintenance, and much more. Other commercial property professionals who often require the services of Sterling & Associates include property or real estate management professionals, architects, attorneys, and engineers.

Notably, Sterling & Associates participated actively on the “stewardship team” formed by Cushman & Wakefield @ Adobe Systems, which worked to achieve the world’s first commercial LEED®-EB 2.0 Platinum Certifications. Sterling & Associates had been evaluating Indoor Air Quality within the Adobe campus for many years, and remains a valued partner and resource to Adobe, as well as other clientele, as they continue to lead the way with regard to Indoor Environmental Quality, energy efficiency, and environmental responsibility.

After nearly 20 years of being a trusted EH&S consultant for Northern CA businesses, Sterling & Associates is here to stay, but now with the added resources and muscle of an international partner, EHS Partnerships.
