Heritage Crystal Clean is the second largest provider of parts cleaning services in the U.S. and a leading provider of containerized waste services focused on small to mid-sized customers. HCCI's services allow customers to outsource their management of regulated wastes, enabling them to focus on their core businesses and helping them remain in compliance with complex regulations. HCCI currently operates out of 67 branches serving more than 44,000 customers. In addition to parts cleaning, containerized waste and vacuum truck services, HCCI is accelerating the number of branches offering used oil collection. HCCI is building a used oil re-refinery with the capacity to recycle approximately 50 million gallons of used oil feedstock and produce about 30 million gallons of lubricating base oil per year. The re-refinery provides HCCI with both economic and environmental competitive advantages. Rerefining is considered the "best and highest use" of used oil because it conserves and reuses a valuable resource, reduces pollution and is energy efficient. In addition to re-refining, HCCI's continuing growth strategy includes geographic expansion as well as the introduction of new service offerings. Heritage Crystal Clean, Inc. is publicly-traded on the NASDAQ Global Market under the ticker symbol HCCI.

Since 2000, Heritage Interactive Services has been improving upon the concept that waste materials are not worthless. We believe used, but not used up, materials of all types should be recognized as by-products having some basic value. We work to reduce, repurpose, reuse or recycle materials before disposal is considered. Heritage Interactive Services has evolved from being a waste disposal manager for our customers, to becoming their "By-Product Solution Partner."
Micronutrients was founded on the concept that high-performance, bio-active mineral compounds for nutrition can be economically manufactured by carefully tailoring their chemical structure to achieve controlled release in the digestive tract of an animal. The flagship product is hydroxy copper chloride, newly trademarked as IntelliBond® C and used in most species, including chickens, turkeys, pigs, dairy cows, beef cattle, horses and pets. The success of this copper is being followed by the introduction of zinc and manganese. The brand name reflects the fact that ideal bond strength in a mineral compound is the key to reducing damage to other beneficial ingredients such as vitamins in feeds, improving bioavailability and maximizing bio-efficacy in the animal.
The majority of the copper feedstocks used to manufacture IntelliBond® C are obtained from etching printed circuit boards. This high purity feedstock was pioneered by Heritage/Micronutrients to produce a novel nutritional copper supplement, while regenerating fresh etchant for the customer. Manufacturing plants have been constructed and are operational in Indianapolis, IN and Shenzhen, China.
