Keltbray adds recycling reach
By Lindsay Gale16 June 2008
Keltbray Group has extended its recycling and waste management arm through the formation of a new company, Keltbray Hunt Ltd, which has acquired the assets of Barham Group, including Barham Waste Services, in a deal, the terms of which were not disclosed. The new company is jointly owned by Keltbray Group and the current shareholders of Barham Group and will trade under the Hunts Waste name..
Barham Waste Services has operated a six acre waste transfer station in Dagenham , Essex, under the Hunts Waste name since 1999, processing a wide range of waste including a large volume of C&D waste, which it sorts, stockpiles and then ships for recycling. Residual material that cannot be recycled is shipped to landfill.
In a statement, Keltbray Group managing director Brendan Kerr said: “Hunts Waste has been recycling waste from their headquarters in east London for nearly a decade. It is our plan to work together to build on the successful business performance achieved to date, and to strengthen the Keltbray Group delivery ability to clients by offering them access to a recycling hub. I am thrilled we are growing our integrated range of specialist construction services by developing our capabilities in waste management and recycling, which will assist us in steering a steady course to both deliver and expand our project stream by adding commercial and environmental value.”
According to Keltbray, it has been examining opportunities to achieve this over the course of the last year. The Hunts Waste acquisition joins the recent formation of the Keltbray-AWS joint venture for the remediation of contaminated excavation materials.
