Record growth for Axil as it celebrates six years in business

This month, Axil is celebrating six years of delivering industry-leading total waste management solutions, accompanied by an outstanding 570 per cent surge in growth, and an impressive £34 million revenue in the last financial year.

Founded by Managing Director, Edward Pigg, in March 2018, the business now has over 150 major customers including CBRE, Whirlpool, Lush, LEVC and BMW Group, and many more sites across a client base of critical UK sectors, including Aerospace, Automotive, Food, Manufacturing, and Pharmaceutical.

Based in Corby and Cannock and operating across the UK, Axil has expanded into new sectors and has grown from just 34 people in 2018 to over 200 team members.

Speaking about Axil’s growth, Pigg said: “From the start, our goal was clear: to build a resilient business that thrives in tough markets. Axil was founded on the belief that organisations deserve more than mere waste removal. With a growing emphasis on sustainability and environmental responsibility, we work with our clients, turning challenges into opportunities, re-engineering waste, whilst delivering significant and lasting cost savings.

“Our leadership team, from diverse backgrounds, always had a vision of what success looked like in a busy marketplace. The key? Bringing together the right team, united by a 100 per cent commitment to excellent customer service and an internal culture centred on integrity, teamwork and environmental stewardship.”

He continued: “None of this would be possible without the support of our incredible team, partners, clients, and supply chain. We have a dedicated and energetic team, made up of experienced, as well as young minds, delivering first-class products and services. They are our future leaders with a great career ahead of them. While growth is challenging, we won’t forget our roots and the people who got us here.”

As Axil marks this significant milestone, it “remains focused on the future”. With innovation at its core, a growing community of dedicated team members, and a commitment to supporting SMEs and local employment, Axil says it is “geared up for even greater achievements” in the years to come, with ambitious growth goals that will see it expanding into other crucial UK sectors.

Navigating FM efforts to sustainability 

As environmental protection demands unified action, transparency, and heightened awareness, Biological Preparations has launched an initiative to catalyse sustainability efforts within the FM sector.

FM businesses face unique challenges and heightened expectations of eco-initiatives from their clients. Yet, behind the scenes in FM businesses, many environmental initiatives, rollouts and even planning, are not broadcasted and transparent.

Have your say: Sustainability Trends in FM 

The UK biotech company’s five-minute, anonymous FM-focused survey, offers FM professionals of all hierarchies with a platform to voice their perspectives and share their experiences. The results from this survey will then be analysed and presented as an industry-specific report, which aims to guide FM businesses helping them benchmark trends, gain clarity on industry challenges, and map out goals and metrics towards sustainability.
