A Proud Tradition of Service, Safety & Satisfied Clients
For more than 50 years, G&S Technologies has led the way in helping utilities, businesses and industry safely remove and recycle obsolete transformers and other oil-filled electrical equipment, and rebuild those units that can still be productive. We are experts in helping you assess the functionality of your equipment; determine PCB levels where applicable; and ensure that all processing is done in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
We operate the largest processing facility for transformers and other oil-filled electrical equipment in the U.S., including the country's largest scrap metal recovery oven, which meets all US EPA requirements for incineration of drained PCB-contaminated articles (previously containing up to 499 ppm PCBs). Equipment containing 500 ppm PCBs or higher is processed in partnership with our sister company, TCI of Alabama. Our network of strategic partnerships with our sister companies, as well as with certified waste hauling contractors across the U.S., ensures that we can accommodate your needs safely and quickly, and provide rapid emergency deployment.
