About Bay West
Bay West began 39 years ago as a Duluth, Minnesota-based environmental consulting firm providing supplies and services to the mining and transportation industries of the Western Great Lakes region. We've since grown into a nationally recognized environmental consulting and remediation company.
We’re known for our customer-focused solutions, attention to detail, safety record, highly skilled staff, and rapid response capabilities. Today, based in St. Paul, Minnesota, Bay West is led by equal partners: President Lon Larson, Vice President Ed Bacig and Vice President Gene Kuppenbender.
Through the years, environmental regulations for air, land and water have continued to evolve. Every step of the way, our environmental engineers, scientists, and emergency response professionals have helped government and commercial enterprises navigate complex environmental concerns and ongoing environmental remediation challenges. Our customers continue to choose us as a single-source provider due to our exceptional track record and reliability.

“Wow, you knocked it out of the park…nothing but praise, great reports, communication is out standing, very knowledgeable about haz waste regulations, etc. On a scale of 0 - 10 with 10 being the highest the project was a 10+. [I] chose Bay West because we worked at the site, and there were complex hazardous waste issues that I knew Bay West could handle.”

"There was some anxiety regarding a new smaller company [Bay West] taking over a large restoration program from a contractor that had 10 years experience and continuity at our air force base. That quickly disappeared as Bay West hit the ground running."
