Jersey company Hunt Brothers has teamed up with scrap giant EMR to win the tender to run a scrap operation on the island.
From an initial 22 companies that expressed interest in running the Jersey government’s scrap metal yard, six were invited to formally tender.
A consortium, Hunts (Jersey) that comprises Hunt Brothers and EMR, has been selected as the preferred tenderer.
Jersey Minister for Transport and Technical Services Deputy Kevin Lewis said: “This is an important contract for Transport and Technical Services and this has been reflected in the tendering process.
“We need an operator who is not only technically qualified and experienced to do the job on a commercially keen basis, but which also takes their health and safety and environmental responsibilities seriously.”
