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

For an undisclosed sum, Acumen - the national provider of waste management and industrial site services solutions - has acquired the share capital, sites and associated assets.

With Chemwaste providing complementary hazardous waste treatment and transfer capability, this transaction represents a further stage of Acumen’s bolt-on growth strategy.

It follows on from the acquisition of Highspeed Ltd in 2017 and the establishment of hazardous liq-uid treatment capacity at Harewood Whin in 2018.

Andy Crossley, managing director at Acumen said: “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.”

The acquisition sits alongside a number of recent high-profile contract wins for Acumen and further demonstrates their strategic approach to service development and business growth.

Simon Towers, Director Bradley Park Waste Management commented: “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 contin-ued success of the business.”

A team of Yorkshire advisers supported Acumen on this transaction including Kaira Clarehugh and Gina Rhodes of Clarion Solicitors in Leeds and Justine Stalker and Chris Holden of Saffery Champ-ness in Harrogate.

Mark Whelan and Neil Giles from Quercus Corporate Finance and Mark Gaffney and James Thomp-son of Squire Patton Bloggs advised Bradley Park Waste Management.
