Beauparc has continued its expansion into the UK market and are pleased to confirm our latest acquisition. AWM, Leeds waste management firm, joined the group on Friday, November 30th.
AWM are a Yorkshire based waste management business that provide commercial recycling, waste disposal, collection, treatment and re-usable energy manufacturing services to clients throughout the UK. The company has proven longevity in the industry having been in the business for over 18 years. Over this time the business has transformed and grown from strength to strength enabling it to work in partnership with Key Local Authorities and other major waste management companies.
Commenting on the acquisition today, Brian McCabe, managing director at Beauparc said: “We are very pleased to conclude the acquisition of AWM. This adds to our growth strategy in the UK and brings a level of scale and processing capabilities to Beauparc.” “It is our intention to continue with what is already in place throughout AWM. We will build and develop this business even further, ensuring growth continues whilst still providing the quality of service that customers have been used to.”
The company operates 10 facilities in the Yorkshire area and employs over 260 staff members. Currently, AWM is producing 140,000 tons of diverted waste-to-energy product each year. This is enough to power 20,000 homes and 30,000 businesses.
AWM will continue to be known as and trade under the same name, while services will continue as normal from the company offices and sites. The AWM office will become the UK head office for Beauparc’s UK division.
Beauparc are delighted that existing AWM staff including John Brooksbank, the company’s managing director, Tim Shapcott, commercial & business development director and Colette Bloom, finance director, will remain with the business. Eamonn Hanley will take on the operations and logistics director role with immediate effect. The business as a whole will be supported by the wider Beauparc Group and management team.
