A note from our Founders

In 1988, we co-founded this firm with the vision of combining the rapid advances occurring in technology with a fundamental understanding of scientific principles to promote and ensure healthier and safer environments. We adopted as our motto, “Scientific Minds. Common Sense Solutions” because it highlights the scientific approach we bring to our clients’ concerns. Through time, we have expanded the services we offer and have diversified the customers we serve, but we are pleased and proud that we have remained true to our vision.

As our company grew, we recognized that CSS’ next-generation growth strategy would be rooted in sharing the financial success with our greatest asset…our employees.  In 2012, we became 100% employee-owned through the creation of an Employee Stock Ownership Plan, which now provides all our employees equity ownership in their company. 

The creativity, enthusiasm, and commitment of our talented employee-owners have made it possible for CSS to make a positive difference in our world. We are confident that together we will accomplish our mission to “Apply science and technology to create a healthier, safer, and environmentally sustainable future” and continue to be in the vanguard of solution providers for many years to come. Thank you for visiting our website.

Our History

Consolidated Safety Services, Inc. (CSS) was incorporated in 1988 to provide health and safety services to the public and private sectors. CSS rapidly expanded its services to include scientific program support in the physical and life sciences as well as transportation safety.

In 2010, CSS acquired Dynamac Corporation, the leading provider of life science payload processing services for space transportation systems.  The core competencies of Dynamac, added to those of CSS immediately produced remarkable synergy enabling the CSS enterprise to offer truly comprehensive environmental, safety & health services and robust scientific support capabilities.

Employee Owned since 2012

In 2005, an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) was established and by 2012 CSS became 100% employee-owned.

Our Services

CSS services are organized into several core competencies and cross-cutting services that we have cultivated through our 30+ years of corporate experience.  Our diverse staff of employee-owners represent close to 70 distinct disciplines ranging from astronomy to zoology.  The majority of our staff hold advanced education degrees, and professional certifications, reflecting a level of scientific expertise critical to the mission of our clients.
