Beauparc has expanded its UK portfolio with the acquisition of Yorkshire-headquartered specialist waste company, Acumen Waste Services.
Founded in 1994, Acumen are leaders in the specialist waste management sector, providing services to over 1,000 customers nationally and internationally.
Managing Director of Acumen, Andy Crossley, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be joining an organisation that aligns so closely with our own values. Like Beauparc, Acumen has grown to become a leader within the specialist and difficult waste sector and we’re very proud of the brand, achievements and customers that have become part of this journey with us.
“Moving forward we’re excited to be able to deliver the same innovative and specialist solutions for our own customers but also help provide total waste management to Beauparc’s existing customer base. Retaining the knowledge and people within Acumen, as well as the support from a much larger organisation will bring with it greater benefits for all.”
As part of this transition, longstanding board members and shareholders Leon Kirk and Jon Morris will be stepping down from the board. However, in a joint statement, Leon and Jon said: “We’re both very proud to have served on the board and see the growth and development of such a strong business.
“Becoming part of the Beauparc group will present excellent opportunities, not just for the dedicated team that work within Acumen or the fantastic array of customers but also for the industry. In a similar style to Acumen, Beauparc are highly driven by innovation and progressive development. As a business we’ve led the industry for several years, and we’ll take great interest charting its successes going forward.”
The existing senior management team will remain within the business and Managing Director, Andy Crossley and finance director, Kris Sutton will work alongside Beauparc’s management to develop and deliver Acumen’s specialism and service offering throughout the group.
Beauparc CEO, Brian McCabe, said: “Acumen Waste is a leading specialist waste company with a best-in-class team providing premium service offerings to a loyal customer base.
“The combination of Beauparc and Acumen is highly complementary and now enables our joint business to offer market leading services across several specialisms in our core catchment areas.
“We are delighted to work with Andy, Kris and the wider management team to continue delivering quality services to the broader Acumen and Beauparc customer base.”
