Impact Environmental Group Acquires The Tarp Depot

Impact Environmental Group (IEG), Elgin, Illinois, has acquired The Tarp Depot (TTD), a leading manufacturer and distributor of spill prevention containment systems, dewatering products, various transportation tarps and related products to customers in the environmental services space. 

With the acquisition of The Tarp Depot, Pasadena, Texas, IEG further expands its presence in tarps and tarping systems after its acquisition of Deroche Canvas in 2022, IEG says in a news release.

“The Tarp Depot is a perfect complement to the Deroche business,” IEG President and CEO Brian Beth says. “While Deroche specializes in tarps for waste transportation, The Tarp Depot gives us a broader tarp offering, particularly in spill containment and dewatering products. As regulatory requirements continue to increase across the industry, we look forward to providing customers with a variety of solutions.”

With an extensive customer network ranging from national environmental service providers to equipment manufacturing partners, IEG plans to grow the TTD business by leveraging its existing channels to bring TTD’s product offering to a broader audience as well as broader geography. IEG says it will benefit from TDD’s customers in the environmental services space which have a need for IEG’s legacy products.  After closing this acquisition, IEG now has 14 service locations to handle customer needs coast-to-coast across the United States.

Founded in 2005 by Fred Pyle and Lauren Thorp, The Tarp Depot has seen significant growth as a result of its quality product line and service levels. In addition to its Pasadena, Texas, headquarters, TTD has facilities in Midland and Beaumont, Texas, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. 

Founded in 1999, Impact Environmental Group offers suite of new and replacement products for waste containers, collection and compaction equipment and waste transportation equipment.  IEG companies include Impact, Roll-Tech, Midland Chutes, Northern Extrusion, United Compaction Services, Deroche Canvas, Container Components (US), United Kingdom-based Egbert Taylor and Europe-based Container Components.
