Raymond Brown Waste Solutions (RBWS) has been acquired by Collard Group Ltd, taking it into the “top-tier” of waste management companies with a 1 million+ tonne annual capacity for waste and recycling.
The addition of RBWS’ resources includes the incorporation of three strategically-located waste transfer stations at Chilton (Didcot), Nursling (Southampton) and at Andover on the A303.
A combination of investment and acquisition has seen Collard Group grow in recent years into a multi-disciplined provider of demolition, recycling, skip hire, haulage, aggregates and earthworks as well as supplying high-grade secondary aggregates and ready-mixed concrete.
We felt there was great synergy between the two companies in terms of service profile as well as approach to recycling and sustainability
The newly-combined business now possesses over 4000 skips, a 150-vehicle fleet, more than 400 staff and a turnover in excess of £50 million.
“The deal brings together two successful businesses and strong brands, creating greater capacity for R Collard and expanding the services available to Raymond Brown Waste Solutions’ existing customers” says founder and owner Rob Collard.
“We felt there was great synergy between the two companies in terms of service profile as well as approach to recycling and sustainability.”
The acquisition coincides with the 25th Anniversary of the establishment of R Collard Ltd and marks a major milestone in the company’s history.
