To reconcile the earth from what nature has disturbed and what man has altered through progress.
WE NURSE THE EARTH!
We are an environmental
company in the area of mass seeding and erosion control. We restore and balance the earth and water with proper vegetation
and applied erosion control techniques, while keeping wildlife and man's needs in the forefront.
Natural Environmental Reclamation Concepts, Inc. (NERC, Inc.) is
a family owned, Christian based company located in Hanover, MI. Our firm has been a top competitor in the field
of re-vegetation and erosion control for over 30 years. With a territory focused throughout Michigan, we keep a presence
in the surrounding states of: Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Wisconsin. Our expertise began in the landfill industry, by
creating grass growth in poor soil conditions and on terrain that is near impossible to perform work on. The propritary
seed mix we developed along with a specialized procedure, credited us with the "Ability to grow grass on rocks".
As we continously grew, we began creating a presence in the additional industries of: roads/highways, airports, commercial
development, wetlands and landscaping.
Our company was founded by
Patrick and Diane O'Shea in 1982. NERC, Inc. grew quickly with the knowledge that Patrick brought from his early days
managing a sod farm to being a Superentendent for one of the largest earthmoving companies in the State at the time.
After he passed in April of 2011, their grandson, Mark Sholtis, stepped in to manage and lead NERC, Inc. In 2015, Mark's
wife Ashley took over the role of Office Manager. Between the daily presence of Diane, Mark and Ashley, our company
is truly a family ran business.
