Dewsbury waste firm acquired by national industrial site solutions specialist

A West Yorkshire waste management firm has been acquired by a national company as part of its ongoing expansion.

Acumen has acquired Dewsbury-based hazardous waste management and environmental services business Chemwaste from Bradley Park Waste Management Ltd.

With Chemwaste providing complementary hazardous waste treatment and transfer capability, this transaction represents a further stage of Acumen’s bolt-on growth strategy, and follows on from the acquisition of Highspeed Ltd in 2017 and the establishment of hazardous liquid treatment capacity at Harewood Whin in 2018.

Andy Crossley, managing director at Acumen, commented: “We’re pleased to have completed the purchase of Chemwaste, whose service offerings, locations and assets will complement the wider Acumen business.

“We look forward to integrating the business to provide service and value enhancements to our customers.”

Simon Towers, director of Bradley Park Waste Management, added: “We’re delighted to have completed the divestment of Chemwaste to Acumen.

“Acumen are a leading provider in this space and are therefore well placed to ensure the continued success of the business.”
