Our Mission

“Provide environmentally and

financially sustainable solutions

to agriculture and industry.”

Our Story

Nutrient Control Systems (NCS), Inc. was founded in 2001 with the vision of improving manure handling practices and water quality within the highly sensitive Chesapeake Bay Watershed.  As the business has evolved, NCS has become an industry leader in technological development of residuals processing systems for both agricultural and industrial customers.  Our current geographic reach stretches from our home base in Pennsylvania, south to Florida and west to California, Washington, and Oregon.

From humble beginnings, NCS now works with and employs a highly skilled and dedicated group of technicians, engineers, sales, financial professionals and associated staff that passionately pursues creative and environmentally focused solutions for our client base while also keeping in mind that all solutions must be financially sustainable.

NCS manufactures its own line of dewatering and processing equipment while also serving as the exclusive North American distributor for Europe’s leading manufacturer of waste handling equipment, Cri-Man, S.p.A.   In addition to these activities, NCS serves as a cost-effective and reliable residuals hauling provider and disposal solution to various food processing and industrial customers.  NCS also manufactures ingredient materials to support renewable and sustainable efforts in lawn/garden, horticultural and oil/gas markets.

Through our current and future growth NCS has always been and will remain focused on our mantra of “Sustainable Solutions”. We continue to march forward as a leader in this mission while serving in the best interests of our customers, employees and the environment.
