About West Chester Environmental
Matthew Abraham, Westchester Environmental founder and CEO, founded the company in 2000. He set out with one goal in mind, to build a nimble and energetic provider of high quality, high value environmental services.
What started out as a business run from the front seat of his car, Matthew specialized in Asbestos Investigation and Air Monitoring working for the City of Philadelphia as a license Asbestos Project Inspector. That front seat would soon be upgraded into a shared office space and eventually the office we have today.
More than two decades later, Westchester Environmental is a successful, regional environmental monitoring and consulting firm based in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Over those years, Westchester Environmental has attracted and retained hundreds of satisfied clients throughout southeastern Pennsylvania, the City of Philadelphia, and the State of New Jersey. These include real estate developers, property managers, educational institutions, architects, abatement contractors, and industrial and commercial enterprises.
Our professionals are qualified and experienced in a wide range of engineering and scientific disciplines stemming from backgrounds in Geology, Chemistry, Biology, and Environmental Engineering. Our staff is also familiar with the legal and financial implications of environmental, health and safety issues.
Our technicians have the appropriate certifications and licenses to complete many different environmental tasks involving Asbestos, Lead, Hazardous Materials, Industrial Hygiene, and Environmental Site Assessments.
Westchester Environmental is certified as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and a Minority Business Enterprise by the City of Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania Department of General Services. Westchester Environmental is also a prequalified Consultant with Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
