James Norvill - Managing Director
Newport-based waste management specialist, GD Environmental has today announced the successful takeover of Countryside Skip Hire in a deal which values the company at over £5million.
The takeover will see GD Environmental increase its share of the domestic skip hire market in Wales, while also acquiring 3 chain lift skip lorries and a range of domestic skip containers worth in excess of £200,000.
James Norvill Managing Director of GD Environmental said: “The acquisition of Countryside Skip Hire will significantly increase our ability to service new waste management contracts across South Wales. We are confident this strategic decision will improve our response times for emergency skip hire deliveries and provide a foundation to further expand the GD Environmental brand to new regions of Wales and the West Country.”
Following the acquisition of Countryside Skip Hire, GD Environmental has began planning the expansion of its existing waste disposal facility in Newport where the business recycles all forms of private and commercial waste streams which include wood, metal, plastic, gypsum, hardcore and cardboard. The company has also recruited 3 new staff to manage additional contract work.
James Norvill continued, “ Since the business began we have always made bold strategic decisions to move the business forward and provide a one stop solution for any waste management requirement. This latest acquisition will sustain further growth for the business during the busy summer months.”
This latest development at GD Environmental follows a successful year that has seen the business successfully tender the 2010 Ryder Cup waste management contract and develop the tournaments award winning driving range at the Celtic Manor Resort.
GD Environmental has bold ambitions to become the UK’s first carbon positive waste management company by 2015 through offsetting its carbon footprint through investing in pioneering green technologies.
