The Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council has once again recognized Anguil Environmental Systems, Inc. for its sustainability efforts as part of its Green Masters Program.
Recognizing sustainable actions by businesses from across the state of Wisconsin, the Green Masters program works to identify companies that have taken actions within a variety of sustainability pillars. Participants receive recognition for their sustainability accomplishments and use the program to develop ideas to plan future sustainability actions.
For the ninth year in a row, Anguil has been recognized as a Wisconsin Green Masters Program Participant. In 2023, the Green Masters program updated its award categories, leading Anguil to be awarded Maturing status within our industry. The Green Masters Program provides a third-party, objective set of criteria for defining sustainability initiatives and legitimizes our work to push sustainability into our supply chain. Anguil is continually evaluated and accepted based on our involvement in key areas of environmental stewardship, community involvement and impact, employee experience, and sustainable governance.
While the corporate landscape continues to adapt and adjust post-pandemic, Anguil has continued to make strides in its sustainability efforts. A major project completed in 2023 included the removal of single-use plastics throughout the Anguil corporate headquarters in Milwaukee; reusable and/or sustainably-produced utensils, bowls, plates, cups, and mugs are stocked in each kitchen, and each employee received a set of reusable corn-based utensils. Additionally, Anguil’s employee-led sustainability team has implemented a switch from single-use batteries to rechargeable batteries throughout the corporate office.
On Anguil’s sustainability goals, the executive team believes, “It is important to us that every employee knows what we stand for, our values, and future goals. This takes some work, practice, repetition, and belief. In the end, it revolves around communication from every level of our organization. With this, we believe we can create a more sustainable company, saving time, money, and resources — which then opens the door for more opportunity and growth.”
The Green Masters Program is an objective, point-based recognition, assessment, and certification program that enables Wisconsin businesses from any size or sector to measure and improve their sustainability strategy. The program has four levels of participation: Adapting, Advancing, Maturing, and Green Master. Anguil has achieved Maturing status. Each year the top quartile of the program’s companies are recognized as Green Master companies at the annual WSBC Conference, held in November.
“The Green Masters Program is a tool for businesses to assess and grow their sustainability actions, to benchmark against others in their industry, and to receive a third party credential recognizing their sustainability achievements,” says WSBC’s managing director, Jessy Servi Ortiz.

Anguil has announced the launch of their Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) software platform and is now seeking participants for their pilot program. Unlike the Internet of Things (IoT), which largely centers on consumer devices, IIoT focuses on bringing connectivity and data exchange capabilities via an internet connection to industrial and manufacturing contexts.
Anguil’s IIoT software platform is tailored specifically for enhancing operational transparency and reporting capabilities for environmental pollution control equipment. Anguil partnered with Siemens to leverage their Mindsphere® software, which provides exceptional data security and complex development components and tools, allowing Anguil to develop a sophisticated, flexible, and data secure IIoT solution. Anguil’s IIoT platform is designed to leverage existing equipment data to improve performance, lower maintenance costs, and prevent unplanned downtime through graphical overviews, KPI dashboards, live trending, and document repositories.
According to Richard Oakes, Client Manager and IIoT Business Development Manager, the timing couldn’t be better for Anguil’s IIoT solution: “IoT has disrupted and transformed widespread consumer markets. Why should the environmental pollution control industry be any different? The industry has been mature for a long time – the next logical step is advanced automation and controls. Until now, there really hasn’t been much out there for environmental managers looking to modernize their environmental equipment management strategy. Our IIoT platform is a game changer for them.”
To further test and enhance their IIoT platform, Anguil is seeking industrial facilities with existing environmental technologies to participate in a pilot program. Participants partner with Anguil to integrate the IIoT platform with their environmental equipment for a six-month period, providing feedback on the existing interface and input on desired functionality. To qualify as a pilot participant, Anguil is seeking facilities willing to provide Anguil’s IIoT team technical access to their system control panel. Besides minimal set-up costs, there is no cost to participate as a pilot customer and no long-term obligation. At the end of the pilot program, participants will be offered the option to continue IIoT services or to end the engagement with no pressure to purchase.

Anguil is thrilled to announce the official inauguration of the Anguil Environmental Systems Private LTD headquarters in India.
Since 1978, Anguil has been a burgeoning leader in the global air and water pollution control markets. In response to increased demand for its environmental technologies and services, Anguil Environmental Systems Inc. (Anguil) formed a wholly owned Indian subsidiary, Anguil Environmental Systems Private LTD, in June of 2020. Since formation, Anguil’s Indian office has been busy leveraging well-established partnerships and building on a favorable reputation based on several existing installations throughout India. Anguil is now thrilled to announce that the growing India team has officially inaugurated the new the Anguil Environmental Systems Private LTD headquarters located in Gujarat.
Located in the Atlantis Heights neighborhood in Subhanpura, the office is in a prime location for doing business within the Vadodara metro area.

Ekadashi is an auspicious day in Hindu culture. It takes place on the eleventh day of the two lunar cycles of the month. Spiritually, Ekadashi symbolizes eleven senses constituting five sense organs, five action organs and one mind. People observe a fast to mark the day by controlling the eleven senses and consuming only permitted foods and refraining from others.
As a part of our inauguration day celebration, worship was conducted at the office. A priest was invited to help conduct worship. Key partners of Anguil India, including our fabricators, were invited to the festivities. The gathering included an extensive spread of food and time of fellowship together.
The office is located on the 6th floor of a 12-story building in a prime commercial area with many nearby corporate offices representing the information technology, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries. The office, which is designed to serve as a center point of all business activities, will help integrate sales, engineering, project management, and service functions at one single location.

Milwaukee, WI: Starting an environmental company in the late 1970’s was not nearly as well received as it would be today, but Gene Anguil, Founder of Anguil Environmental Systems, persevered. Four decades later, Anguil is recognized as a worldwide leader of industrial air pollution control and wastewater treatment technologies. On August 12th, the company is hosting a 40th anniversary party that will be truly international, drawing attendees from across the United States, Asia, and Europe. Held in downtown Milwaukee, the private celebration will be one of the first events in the new wing at Discovery World overlooking Lake Michigan.
Approximately four-hundred people are expected at the Sunday evening party. Guests will consist of employees, both current and former, as well as partners, key suppliers, sales representatives and close family friends. “It’s important that we recognize the people and companies that helped us get where we are today,” said Gene. “While my wife was our first, and arguably most-important employee, there were also a lot of other vital contributors to our success.”
The night will include a multimedia presentation focused on Anguil’s Recipe for Success: Vision, Expertise, Leadership, Employees, Resilience, Fun, Community, and Family. Dinner and dancing will follow a series of speeches by key Anguil personnel. According to Chris Anguil, son of Gene and President of the company, “August 12th also happens to be Gene’s 80th birthday, so there may be some surprises”.
Throughout the past four decades, the company has celebrated countless successes, but also persevered through some challenges. Major milestones include several moves into increasingly larger facilities, the establishment of international operations, development of an extensive global sales representative network, and a continuous garnering of awards like the employee-driven Top Workplace distinction and the Environmental Business Journal Achievement Award. The tragic passing of Gene’s oldest son Jeff in 1993, then company President, was one of those challenging moments that tested the company’s resiliency while cementing the family culture that still exists today.
The 40th anniversary celebration comes at a time of widespread enthusiasm for the company’s mission and steady growth, including the hiring of several third generation Anguil employees, aggressive global sales targets, and the completion of a remodel of their corporate headquarters in Brown Deer. This investment buoys the optimism of employees and the surrounding community, looking ahead to many more years of success.
