New acquisition for waste management group

Independent waste management company Cleansing Service Group (CSG) is continuing to expand with its fifth business acquisition in two years.

In early 2015 the company confirmed it acquired part of the business and assets of Sandycroft, North Walesbased Tradebe Refinery Services (TRS), formerly known as Willacy Oil Services. Willacy, founded in 1989, is a specialist in petrochemical tank cleaning and oily sludge treatment and recovery systems.

International environmental services group Tradebe bought a major shareholding in the business in 2003 and completed a takeover in 2006. It changed its name to Tradebe Refinery Services in 2012, but ceased trading at its Sandycroft site in December last year.

CSG says it has now acquired the one-acre site and is currently looking to re-establish the business. The company will also retain its former Willacy Oil Services trading name.

CSG managing director Neil Richards says: ‘Willacy have worked on refineries in the UK and around the world and the name is well recognised in the oil industry.’

Services carried out from Sandycroft include tank cleaning, lagoon cleaning, sludge processing, equipment manufacturing and refurbishing and spot survey sludge profiling for the oil refinery industry Fareham-based CSG views this latest acquisition as another step towards its expansion programme, especially in the valuable waste oil recovery market in which it is already a major player. CSG has invested heavily in new technology designed to treat polluting oily water wastes which can be converted into fuel oil for industrial use, and says it already has the capacity to recover some 5 million litres of oil each year.

CSG has been growing steadily over the years. Today it owns brand names such as J&G Environmental, Lanstar, Lloyds Environmental, Sealand and Saxon Recycling. In 2014 it acquired part of Augean’ waste network division as well as the waste oil collection and processing firm Oil Monster.
