Two Yorkshire firms have joined forces in a major deal designed to protect the region’s businesses from the impact of rising costs in the waste industry.
Leeds integrated waste management and energy producer, AWM, has agreed a significant partnership with Huddersfield facilities management firm, Core Facility Services, in a move that will deliver greater budget and service certainty for Core’s clients.
The deal will also deliver greater sustainability, supporting AWM’s commitment to waste to energy through Combined Heat and Power Plants, which last year generated enough energy to power more than 30,000 homes & businesses throughout the UK.
Justin Holley of Core Facility Services said: “Yorkshire businesses depend on us to take care of their waste management and compliance reporting in the most cost-effective and streamlined way possible but we have been frustrated by increasing price and service volatility from some suppliers.
“By developing a close partnership with AWM we can offer our clients more stable pricing and a far higher level of reliability whilst strengthening our relationship with a fantastic local business.”
Tim Shapcott, UK Commercial Director representing AWM said: “As part of the Beauparc Utility Group, AWM is a significant player in the waste industry operating our own fleet of vehicles and employing 360 staff across five sites and processing more than 600,000 tonnes of waste per annum.
“This deal will make it even easier for Core to guarantee value for money and service excellence to its customers across waste management and environmental compliance.”
