UK demolition and recycling company Collard Group has acquired Raymond Brown Waste Solutions (RBWS).

The deal, which includes RBWS’s facilities, fleet and equipment, will see the company’s reach extend across five counties in the south east of England, UK.

With nine recycling centres and services that include demolition, skip hire, haulage, aggregates and earthworks, the newly-combined business now comprises over 4,000 skips, 150 vehicles and over 400 staff. It is now also said to have a turnover in excess of £50 million (US$64 million).

Collard said the merger, which includes the integration of RBWS’s staff and management team, would strengthen its position in the UK waste sector.

Rob Collard, founder and owner of Collard Group, said: “We felt there was great synergy between the two companies in terms of service profile as well as approach to recycling and sustainability.”

Collard, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, said the acquisition marks a milestone in the company’s history.
