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 27 years. Starting out with a team of just two people, Beauparc now employs over 1700 employees and oversees facilities across Ireland and the United Kingdom.

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

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 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 1700

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

The following year, 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 United Kingdom. That year, Newearth - one of the UK’S leading waste treatment specialists - became part of the Beauparc family.

In 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.

We also 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 has seen the acquisition of Scotwaste, Scotland's leading integrated skip hire and waste management business.

Our Mission

To build better businesses through creative innovation, clear vision,
and a commitment to sustainability. As we continue to expand and grow, Beauparc remains firmly committed to delivering efficient and renewable utility and energy solutions.
