Which SAME Posts are you a sustaining member of?

When did you join SAME? Why?

Blaine Tech ServicesGlobal or national reach? How far?
Offices located in Washington, California, and Arizona support work throughout the West Coast and inland states with our latest office in Florida supporting work along the East Coast.

Number of employees?

Blaine Tech ServicesCurrent Projects?
We currently perform groundwater sampling and related field support services at over 20 active and closed Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine bases for 10 different client consultants.

What does Blaine Tech specialize in?
Performing groundwater sampling at large, complex, and challenging sites has always been our specialty.

Blaine Tech ServicesJVs or teaming arrangements you’d like to highlight?
We’ve been called “The Swiss of the Environmental Industry” because we purposely avoid aligning ourselves with any one consultant client.

What does membership mean to you/the company?
It’s important to us to support our clients and our clients’ clients whenever we can. Being able to attend, exhibit and participate in SAME conferences, meetings, and golf tournaments have been a great way for us to gain exposure while giving something back to a great organization.
