President and Chief Executive Officer
Roger Knoph incorporated EnviroTech Services, Inc. in 1989 to fill a need for a more environmentally- friendly dust control for unpaved roads. As time progressed, the goal became to expand its product line to include winter de-icing and the treatment of unpaved roads to reduce maintenance. While continuing to develop the company, a focus was put on building infrastructure and facilities across multiple regions of the US that would enable the movement of high volumes of product to our customers when they need it. Striving to be an industry leader, a Research & Development department was created to develop new products along with working closely with our partners in the industry.
