Celtic Recycling undergoing expansion


Heavy machinery and site dismantling company Celtic Recycling is expanding its site in Newport.

It is nearing the end of the second phase of a £5 million expansion that has seen it build two new industrial units, security lodge and weighbridge.


A new access road will lead directly to a 10,000 sq ft heavy load bay that contain two 63-tonne capacity gantry cranes, which are each fitted with 20-tonne auxiliary hoists.

There will also be a 5,000 sq ft processing and storage area and additional hot work facilities that will look after work previously undertaken at Celtic Recycling’s site near Bridgend.

Celtic Recycling managing director Keith James told the Western Mail newspaper: “Development of the Newport site underpins our expansion plans and our commitment to providing innovative recycling and waste management solutions to the industry.

“Once complete, Newport will provide a unique recycling facility, unlike anything available within the UK at the present time and to the best of my knowledge, unrivalled within Europe.”

Turnover at the company has climbed from £6.5 million in 2009 to a predicted £13 million this year.
