American company Bulk Handling Systems has seen its revenues increase by 75 per cent this year.
The company, based in the north west state of Oregon, provides equipment for the recycling sector around the world, including the system for the recently opened Casepak MRF in Leicester.
Bulk Handling Systems chief executive Steve Miller told the local Register Guard newspaper to its head office that the company was looking to hire 25 to 30 people soon at its new larger headquarters. This will take its workforce up to 210 people. The company, which is privately owned, has seen sales grow by 75 per cent this year and revenue is expected to rise by 45 to 50 per cent next year he said.
He also revealed that the energy from waste and anaerobic digestion market is increasingly important to the company. He said: “There’s an energy component in waste that we think is going to significantly fuel our growth going forward.”
