PARS Environmental is a full service environmental consulting firm offering services in environmental engineering and health and safety.

In addition to conventional services, PARS has proprietary technologies that offer cost effective
Kirin contacted the NJSBDC for assistance in government contracting when she purchased the business. The one-on-one counseling with an NJSBDC specialty consultant assisted her in obtaining State certification as a WBE, MBE and SBE. With additional assistance, Kirin also obtained approval for the Federal Small Business Program, 8(a) certification. These certifications provided her and PARS with many contracting opportunities. Most notably was the EPA contract they won earlier this year. This long-term contract involves providing technical support services to the EPA to conduct research, development and evaluation studies concerning wet weather flows (WWFs), water distribution and wastewater collection system infrastructure problems.
Mirroring that success, employment at PARS has grown from six to 25 in the time Kirin has owned it, and sales have increased from $500,000 to $2 million in just the last couple of years. Like many others who have found success through help from the NJSBDC, Kirin says, "The SBDC is a great resource and referral service. Their staff and team of consultants have always been extremely helpful in providing guidance in a number of business areas."
