About Us

Our History

Over the past 40 years WMG has evolved from a small radioactive waste management software company into a trusted and respected Radwaste Solutions Provider. WMG’s expansion beyond software into engineering services, shipping support and training services made us well-rounded, our dedication to our clients made us successful.

October 1979

Waste Management Group, Inc. was founded by Peter Tuite with two other partners in October of 1979, with the goal of getting into the radioactive waste management and software industry. However, in the first year they lost $100,000, causing the other two partners to pull out. Peter however was undeterred and was able to land a contract with Three Mile island. This put Waste Management Group, Inc. on the map and allowed for future growth. Soon after, the company’s name was shortened to WMG, inc. to avoid confusion with competitors.


WMG begins development of the RADMAN™ program and receives NRC topical approval. The original RADMAN™ program was written in FORTRAN IV for the TRS 80 computer. A dot matrix printer was included, and the entire package weighed about 20 lbs. Peter drove around from plant to plant in his station wagon attempting to sell RADMAN™, and Oyster Creek eventually bought the first unit.

After RADMAN™ was converted to run on a much more sizable IBM computer, demand for RADMAN™ increased and plants across the country began to purchase it. With the introduction of RADMAN™, WMG’s reputation for setting the industry standard for excellence began to take shape.


WMG begins development of the RADCOR™ program for irradiated hardware. After its approval, RADCOR™ allowed WMG entry into the hardware sector as the activated metals business was taking off. RADCOR™ allowed WMG to consistently win contracts over competitors, with the first job completed at H.B. Robinson.


WMG develops FILTRAK™ and RAMSHP™, as the filter characterization sector began to manifest. These programs have been integrated and are now a part of the RADMAN™ Suite.


WMG enters the decontamination and decommissioning (D&D) market, with a major contract at Yankee Rowe, due to having previous success with activation analysis contracts for the government. Later, major D&D contracts would be completed at Saxton, Trojan, Shoreham, San Onofre, Oyster Creek, Big Rock Point, and Yankee Maine and Connecticut.


WMG is issued the first of several patents for the MLLWVS™ Automated Characterization System, allowing compact sites to verify characterization results.


RADMAN™ for Windows is released. FILTRAK™, RAMSHP™, and other programs are all bundled along with RADMAN™ further increasing the capabilities of the software.


WMG receives patents for its innovative intact reactor pressure vessel packaging, which was used at several decommissioning sites, including San Onofre.

Kevin Tuite takes over as President and CEO.


WMG Packages and transports the Farley Unit 1 and Surry Unit 2 retired reactor pressure vessel heads intact for disposal using our patented transportation system, marking the first time in history a reactor vessel head is shipped intact.


WMG enters the filter processing businesses after 18 months of research and development, and drastically reduces the disposition costs of high activity filters within the industry.


WMG receives Platt’s Global Energy Innovation Award for the filter processing methodology, one year after breaking into the filter processing business.

RADMAN™ is uploaded into the cloud, further increasing the modularity and storage capabilities of WMG’s flagship program.


WMG is awarded prime contract for the shipment and disposal of the Point Beach steam generator lower assemblies (SGLA). The Four SGLAs were transported via goldhofer, barge, and rail for disposal in 2014, and qualified as IP2 packages.


WMG develops the FLTRSTOR™ liners, which increase the packaging efficiency for cartridge filters by 50% and save customers hundreds of thousands of dollars.


WMG releases FME Guardian™, a fully web enabled app that tracks foreign material exclusion in support of site FME Programs.


WMG begins development of the upcoming REACh™ characterization system, which revolutionizes the way low-level waste is characterized and classified via a handheld detector.
