Irwin Mitchell Advises Fast-Growing Business On Latest Deals
The UK’s leading provider of outsourced waste management and recycling services, Reconomy, has announced the acquisition of Gosport-based waste management company, Nationwide Services Group (NSG) as well as a boutique packaging compliance consultancy.
The two deals follow the Telford-based company’s purchase of Advanced Waste Solutions (AWS) at the end of October.
Combined with organic growth, Reconomy’s overall group turnover is now forecast to be in excess of £330m at the end of this year.
NSG, founded in 1992, has built key relationships in the construction, fit-out, retail and commercial sectors and was one of the first outsourced service companies to offer tool and plant hire via a network of service providers.
The latest acquisitions follow that of Prismm Limited which Reconomy bought in April. Other recent acquisitions include Waste Check, Helistrat and Valpak.
Matt Smith, corporate associate, and Emma Callow, corporate partner, at Irwin Mitchell advised Reconomy on the deal.
