Sitrick And Company is working the Chapter 11 filing of Williams Industrial Services Group, which struggled with the loss of customer contacts accounting for about 20 percent of its business and a heavy red ink flow in its water business.

In conjunction with the filing, the Atlanta-based company is selling its profitable nuclear, energy delivery and paper mill operations to EnergySolutions for $60M.

Tracy Pagliara, Williams CEO, said Chapter 11 is obviously not the outcome that it wanted for shareholders, but it was “necessary to deliver the primary and profitable parts of the Williams business to EnergySolutions as a going concern.”

Pagliara expects the Williams business to flourish under EnergySolutions ownership “as we stand on the precipice of a global nuclear renaissance and significant growth in the energy and industrial services.”
