About Us

Established in 1990, in Slane, Co. Meath, Beauparc has expanded into one of the UK and Ireland’s most trusted corporations.

Our History

Founded in Beauparc, Co Meath, in 1990, Beauparc has greatly expanded and diversified over the last 30 years. Starting out with a team of just two people, Beauparc now employs over 3,000 employees.

Our once fledgling company now supplies utilities to homes, businesses and communities and oversees facilities all across Ireland, the UK and internationally.

Our first primary business consisted of the Panda division. Over the intervening years, Panda expanded from a local recycling service into Ireland’s leading commercial and domestic waste management company.

In 2011, we opened our state of the art material recovery facility and the following year, In 2012, we expanded into Commercial Vehicle Testing services and fleet management with Spanners Limited.

Following that, in 2015, Beauparc launched one of its most exciting ventures to date with Panda Power Limited.

"We started with 2.
Now employing over 3,000"

Positioning itself as one of Ireland’s leading suppliers of renewable energy, Panda Power provides homes and businesses with energy derived from 100% renewable resources.

 

In 2016, we acquired Ireland’s second large waste company, Greenstar. Greenstar now processes over 530,000 tonnes of waste every year.

That same year also saw Beauparc’s first move into the UK when Newearth - one of the UK’S leading waste treatment specialists - became part of the Beauparc family.

2017, Beauparc further enhanced its position in the green energy industry with the acquisition of Bioverda. Operating at over twenty landfill sites across Ireland, Bioverda generates electricity through the extraction of methane gas through landfill.

That same year we continued our strategic expansion into the UK market with our acquisition of WSR Recycling. Based in North West England, WSR Recycling is a leading waste management, recycling and resource recovery business.

2018 saw the acquisition of Scotwaste, Scotland's leading integrated skip hire and waste management business. Littleton Composting facility in Tipperary, Ireland, also joined the group in 2018. As did Renes, a diverse collection and recovery business based in The Netherlands.

The acquisition of Leeds-based, waste management business, AWM, in November 2018 added to the Beauparc portfolio. In the same year, Future Street – a distributor for Big Belly Smart Waste joined the group, with communities in over 50 countries.

Beauparc acquired Mid-UK Recycling in 2019, a waste management company with a proven record of working with businesses and local authorities to achieve a genuine 100% landfill diversion. Wers Waste was acquired this same year, a Connacht-based waste management service company.

In 2020, LSS Waste, a Yorkshire-based waste management company with 36 years of experience joined the Beauparc group. This facility processes 350,000 tonnes of waste annually.

2021 saw the acquisition of JWS Waste Management, a Salford-based material recovery facility processing 375,000 tonnes of commercial and construction waste annually.

Beauparc launched Irish Plastic Manufacturing (IPM) to initially process up to 15,000 tonnes of plastic per annum. £30 million was invested into a new material recycling facility in Barkston, near Grantham in 2021. This became fully operational in April 2021 along with a newly equipped facility in Leicestershire which began processing waste in February 2021.

Monaghan based waste management firm Exomax joined the Beauparc group in October 2021. The firm includes the McElvaney's Waste & Recycling, Ace Environmental and Ecological brands. The business provides a waste and recycling service to household and commerical customers throughout the counties of Monaghan, Cavan and Louth and operates five recycling centres on behalf of local authorities in those areas.

B&M Waste was acquired in 2022, providing recycling-led waste management solutions to over 8,500 businesses across the UK. This acquisition has greatly expanded Beauparc’s portfolio in the UK.
