South Wales company aims to create 39 new waste management jobs
GD Environmental have announced a new investment of 13.6m to expand its current three sites based in South Wales which aims to create 39 new waste management jobs
The investment is financed by £300,000 from the Welsh Government’s Growth and Prosperity Fund. This will safeguard 27 waste jobs and bring the total waste management jobs created/employment up to 136.
The waste management company aims to be one of the first ‘Carbon positive’ in the UK, reducing landfill and maximizing waste recycling.
The company offers a complete waste management solution and has developed from a core drainage business into a national provider and creates all forms of waste management jobs.
Its range of services includes scrap processing, plastic recycling, liquid waste processing, dry waste sorting and separating and hazardous waste handling, as well as skip hire, clearing and repair blocked drains and asbestos disposal.
Oliver Hazell and Mark Hazell acquired the business in 2015 and expanded its capabilities through the 2016 acquisition of Pontypool-based Fred Lloyd & Sons which provided a scrap handling and end of life vehicle arm to the business.
Chief executive Oliver Hazell said: “This investment and the backing of the Welsh Government will support our ambitions of becoming an industry leading waste management services requirements in the UK.
“We are making a significant investment at all three sites to offer an even better service to our customers that will help grow the business and enable us to create more jobs at each location, and we continue to offset our carbon footprint whenever possible.”
