Simply Waste Solutions (SWS) has announced that its made its second acquisition of 2018 by agreeing on a deal to buy the waste management division of London-based Dirty Harry’s Group.
According to SWS, this deal will increase its customer base by an extra 500-plus customers in the Central London area.
As part of the deal, over thirty Dirty Harry’s staff will become SWS employees.
This is the second acquisition for SWS in 2018 as it recently purchased the wheeled-bin collection division of M&M Waste Solutions in January.
SWS chief executive James Capel said: “We have always stated that it is our intention to grow the business, both organically and through strategic acquisitions, and so this new addition will enable us to both increase our customer base and consolidate our already strong presence in the capital.
“Through our growth strategy, and the resulting economies of scale, our commitment to our customers is to continue to deliver a highly, cost-efficient service while also maintaining the highest standards of customer service.”
Dirty Harry’s Group managing director Scott Knight said: “Although our waste management division achieved considerable commercial success over the last decade, it has become increasingly clear to us that this service is rapidly becoming highly-specialised and now requires a dedicated focus.
“In Simply Waste Solutions I believe we have found a company that will uphold our values as an independent service provider and who will continue to offer a viable alternative to local authority collectors.”
