MPC clarifies use of company name
Sep 27, 2004 12:58 PM
Marine Pollution Control Corp (MPC) based in Detroit MI, has released an announcement to eliminate any confusion that may arise over the recent formation of Marine Pollution Control SA in Panama and whether MPC is somehow affiliated with this new entity.
MPC is not affiliated in any way with Marine Pollution Control SA and is "extremely disappointed that those incorporating this business have chosen to capitalize on the reputation, name, and history of MPC in an attempt to garner new business in the Panama Canal," the announcement stated.
MPC has been an environmental management firm for almost four decades, has worked around the world, removing the remaining cargo from the Exxon Valdez during a major spill in Alaska in 1989, and performing other clean up operations during the spill.
The company responded to the Amoco Cadiz disaster and participated in the cleanup of the Persian Gulf after Iraq dumped oil into the sea during the Gulf War. The company specializes in emergency response to oil and hazardous material releases, vessel lightering and fendering, response to biohazards/weapons of mass destruction, and confined space entry/rescue services, according to MPC information.
