SBA names Chapman top minority business person

Taken from The Lowell Sun - Sept 26, 2012

LOWELL -- Brian Chapman, president and owner of the Mill City Environmental Corp., has been named the 2012 SBA Minority Small Business Person of the Year for the state of Massachusetts and for the New England region, according to an announcement made by Robert Nelson, the Massachusetts District Director of the U.S. Small Business Administration. According to a press release, the award is presented annually to recognize a minority small-business person who is certified in the 8(a) business development program and who best exemplifies entrepreneurial success.

Chapman was judged on four basic criteria:

  • Evidence of success as measured by sales and profits
  • Response to adversity to achieve his present level of success
  • Display of uniqueness or special attributes
  • Participation in community projects and charitable affairs.

Chapman, a Lowell native, founded Mill City Environmental, a waste-management and remediation firm that cleans out and prepares property for development, more than 10 years ago. The company is based in the Boott Mill on John Street with offices throughout the East Coast. It employs 25 full-time workers.

Chapman, who holds a degree in geology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, will be honored at the Massachusetts SBA Annual Meeting on Nov. 2 in Boston.

8(a) Firm Owner Brian Chapman Named SBA's 2012 Minority Small Business Person of the Year

Taken from The publication - March 7, 2013

Lowell native Brian Chapman, president of Mill City Environmental Corporation (MCE), established his full service environmental services firm in 2001. MCE began as a waste management company specializing in assessment, management and disposal of hazardous wastes and materials. Over the years, the company has expanded to offer a complete range of the highest quality waste management solutions, including asbestos abatement and most recently rail services.

Mr. Chapman's on-going vision for Mill City Environmental is to provide the necessary expertise and services to create a cleaner environment throughout the country and especially within the Lowell/Merrimack Valley communities. Chapman was born and raised in Lowell and always envisioned starting his business in his beloved city. After spending 14 years mastering the environmental cleanup industry at Fortune 100 companies Foster Wheeler (now Tetra Tech EC, Inc.) and Clean Harbors, he recognized that he could adapt his talent and specialized skills to make a meaningful impact both from an economic and environmental perspective. He founded Mill City Environmental and named his company in tribute to the great city of Lowell.

During the early stages of MCE's operation, Chapman was challenged to overcome the stigma associated with being a start-up business. To help overcome this, Chapman made a strategic decision to apply to and gain acceptance into the Small Business Administration's 8(a) Business Development program. This program's mission, to help socially and economically disadvantaged small businesses gain preferential access to federal contracting opportunities, made great strategic sense to Chapman, as it would help to ensure the long-term success of MCE. MCE's participation in the 8(a) program ultimately led to a number of contracts, including one for $3.2 million. And when MCE needed capital to support growth, an SBA guaranteed loan supplied the necessary funds.

Today, MCE is a thriving, award winning small business with 46 employees that serves federal, commercial and private sector clients in 17 states in the New England, Mid Atlantic, South and Southwestern territories.
