In the Spring of 2014, CREM Ltd., reviewed its business strategy by focusing on the wealth of expertise and experience developed over many years operating at senior management level in manufacturing industry. CREM Ltd., began to operate under the trading name of “CHEMICAL SURFACE TREATMENT TECHNOLOGIES” and launched its new website to bring all the expertise and experience under one site.

One of the first commissions for this new company was to project manage the decontamination and decommissioning of the Chemical Surface Treatment Equipment and Waste Water Treatment plant at his former employer, Andersen Ireland Ltd. The site was cleared of all environmental liabilities to facilitate the purchasers of the building, Innovate Limerick, to complete the surrender of the IPPC licence attached to the site within the agreed timeframe.
