Ireland’s Beauparc Group, a waste management and renewable energy business, has stepped up its reach into the UK market with the purchase of LSS Waste Management.
In a deal signed on 9th September, Beauparc bought LSS as part of its acquisition strategy in the UK. The LSS business will complement other UK businesses within the group.
LSS has served customers throughout West Yorkshire for 36 years. From its south Leeds base, its 100-strong workforce supplies skips, mobile compaction and nationwide hire services to domestic and commercial customers.
The facility is permitted to process 350,000 tonnes of waste annually and has offtake arrangements for refuse-derived fuel throughout the UK and Europe.
Brian McCabe, managing director for Beauparc said: “We are very pleased to conclude the acquisition of LSS as this adds to our growth strategy in the UK and brings a greater level of scale and processing capabilities to the group.
“It is our intention to continue with what is already in place throughout LSS, and to build/develop this business even further, ensuring the company continues to grow whilst still providing the quality of service that customers have been used to. This acquisition is part of our strategic growth plans for the UK”.
Nigel Woolford, LSS founder said: “LSS has served 2,000 customers throughout West Yorkshire and will continue to trade under the distinguished ‘yellow’ brand that was formed in 1984.”
The senior management team at LSS will remain with the business. Woolford will adopt a consultancy role and work alongside Beauparc’s operational management structure, led by UK operations and logistics director Eamonn Hanley.
Beauparc’s UK operation now extends to six businesses – New Earth Solutions, Scotwaste, WSR Recycling, AWM, Mid UK & LSS.
