Environmental consultancy and contract management firm Helistrat has agreed to buy the waste management arm of resource efficiency specialist ecosurety.
It means Helistrat expands its waste management business by over £1.5 million per year and comprises blue chip companies including Britvic, Birdeye and Hain Daniels.
Helistrat chief executive Harvey Laud (pictured) said: “This acquisition is clear evidence of our commitment to growth both organically and through targeted acquisitions.”
“We would like to welcome our new customers to Helistrat and look forward to building on ecosurety’s high quality service levels, while working to optimise the environmental and commercial benefits of improved materials management.”
ecosurety chairman Steve Clark added: “This strategic agreement allows ecosurety to focus on its core business of environmental compliance, where we’re challenging the market to bring ever-greater efficiency and innovation for the benefit of our members.
“Over the past 6 years, we’ve worked with several of the same clients as Helistrat and been impressed by their focus on supply chain accountability – one of the most critical areas when dealing with waste.
“With ecosurety facing so much opportunity to grow its core compliance business, the time was right to transfer our waste arm to Helistrat, who are experts in waste and share our aspirations for excellent customer service, continual improvement and resource efficiency.”
