FGS Organics acquires Envar Composting
UK agricultural waste recycler FGS Organics has acquired Envar Composting from ADAS Group in a deal advised by BCMS.
Based in Cambridgeshire, Envar Composting is the UK’s largest waste in-vessel and windrow composting facility, currently processing 105,000 tons a year. The facility produces certified soil conditioner for the agricultural, viticultural and horticultural markets, through the processing of green waste, food waste, and specific organic waste.
FGS Organics is an established provider of recycling solutions for the agricultural, industrial, energy and utility sector.
The acquisition is the latest addition to the portfolio of companies owned by Trevor Heathcote and forms a natural progression for FGS Organics which already offers compost solutions within its portfolio of services.
Commenting on the acquisition, Trevor Heathcote, Chairman of FGS Organics said: “We are pleased to announce the acquisition of Envar Composting, which will further strengthen FGS Organics’ existing organic recycling operations throughout the South and East of England. We look forward to working with Envar Composting’s customers, ensuring an efficient operation for both waste providers and compost end users.”
Colin Speller, Managing Director of the ADAS Group of Companies said: “The sale of Envar Composting Ltd allows the ADAS Group to concentrate on its core purpose of providing ideas, specialist knowledge and solutions to secure our food and enhance the environment. We believe that FGS Organics is a highly suitable owner of the Envar business that is well positioned to develop and grow the business to the benefit of clients, staff and suppliers.”
Contracted and non-contracted arrangements for the intake of waste and supply of compost will continue to operate seamlessly so both staff and customers will notice very little change.
