Wirral-based B&M is taking over waste management company Ian Wilcox Recycling and is the company’s second acquisition in the West Midlands
Wirral waste specialist B&M Waste Services is expanding further into the West Midlands with the acquisition of a family-run firm.
B&M is taking over waste management company Ian Wilcox Recycling. It is the company’s second acquisition in the West Midlands following the takeover of AWS Recycling’s trade rounds in the summer of 2019.
This deal sees Bromborough-based B&M strengthen its position as the ‘waste management and secure shredding company of choice’ in the West Midlands region, offering a carbon neutral waste management service to businesses looking to both minimise waste output and maximise recycling.
The three members of staff within Ian Wilcox Recycling all transferred to B&M Waste and are now part of the larger team of 30 staff in the depot.
Mick Ashall, director at B&M, said “This acquisition further strengthens our capabilities in the West Midlands, which we’re immensely proud of. We look forward to working with our new customers building on the separate food, cardboard, glass, general waste and secure shredding collection services”.
Continuing to grow across the West Midlands, B&M works with businesses in Birmingham, Coventry, Walsall, Dudley and Wolverhampton.
Ian Wilcox, owner of Ian Wilcox Recycling, added: “Having an ethos of customer service ourselves we felt a natural home for our customers and staff would be in the B&M Waste family. We are impressed by the new weighing vehicles B&M Waste have invested in ready for the planned July 2020 city vehicle emission limits.”
