Houston, TX October 18, 2016 –AUC Group, L.P. announces the addition of John Croom to their team of wastewater treatment plant experts as Senior Business Development Manager responsible for new client acquisition, sales team building and account management across the southeastern United States, including Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. He will be based in the new AUC Group office in Mobile, Alabama.


Initially, Croom will focus on smaller communities and municipalities that currently use a “lagoon system” of wastewater treatment, which in some states has become a compliance issue. AUC’s lease plant program is an extremely cost effective solution relative to concrete plants, costing only a small fraction of the alternative’s required capital outlay. AUC will install, lease, expand, and ultimately remove the facilities when a mature project has a permanent plant in place. They offer a variety of short and long term leasing options as well as lease-to-own and installment sale programs. When asked about what he likes most about his new role Croom states “Being an agent of change is something I’ve always strived for. Not change for the sake of change but bringing real, tangible value to a client makes what we provide unique. With increasing permit limits, decreasing tax payers and aging infrastructure, community leaders and business owners are in need of choices to make upgrades financially feasible. AUC Group is the only company that bridges those gaps with amazing flexibility and for that reason, I’m 100% on board”.


Croom brings quite a bit of experience to the AUC team. He was previously a Process Sales Engineer with Southern Water Technologies. His experience and understanding of the challenges facing cities and industry both financially and environmentally makes him a critical resource for our future clients and future growth. Prior to his work at Southern Water, he owned and operated his own environmental consulting firm, OSR, LLC. During his time as an owner operator, he learned a great deal about permitting, compliance, design build projects and treatment technologies for a number of waste streams. A graduate of the University of Southern Alabama, he is an active member and presenter with AWWA, AWEA, WEF, AL-MS-FL associations, PEP Industrial Environmental Partners, Mobile Bay NEP and the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce. As an avid outdoorsman and consultant, John is passionate about providing common sense solutions to meet his client’s needs as well as bettering the downstream environment.


“We are excited to add John to the AUC Team.  John’s experience in building relationships with entities that need new wastewater systems, or improved wastewater systems is integral to his success.  Couple that with the value our customers receive from AUC’s lease plant program and I predict years of success for John in the Southeast Region.”  Todd Mueller, President of AUC Group.
