Grundon Waste Management Ltd has acquired Arundelle, a specialist industrial services and cleaning company for an undisclosed amount.
The move, which took effect on 1 May, will enable the waste management solutions expert to expand its range of services into key areas such as confined spaces cleaning, decontamination, site decommissioning, pollution control, scheduled inspection and maintenance, and a Hazpack/Hazmat spill response service.
Clayton Sullivan-Webb, managing director of Grundon, said: “We're delighted to welcome Arundelle into the Grundon family. This acquisition is the culmination of a long-standing relationship between our two companies and I believe it is the beginning of an exciting new growth period for our business. The expertise and strength of Arundelle's specialist teams will enable us to widen our offering across the industrial cleaning arena and pursue new opportunities in key sectors, such as hospitals, universities, laboratories and factories.”
Arundelle's managing director, David Green, who will join Grundon in a new role as industrial services manager, added: “We have been a long-time admirer of the Grundon operation and have regularly worked alongside their teams on a variety of decontamination and cleaning projects. Joining the Grundon group enables us to take advantage of its extensive capabilities and impressive reputation within the industry. This move will ensure our existing customers receive an even better service and level of support and we look forward to forging new relationships as we move forward together under the Grundon name.”
Also making the move from Arundelle's current base in Wallingford, Oxfordshire to the nearby Grundon operation at Ewelme, will be its core team of five employees. Founded in 1970 and boasting an unbroken safety record, Arundelle's fully qualified and compliant expert teams also handle projects such as tank and vessel cleaning and laboratory services, together with hazardous/toxic environment projects, legionella sterilisation and water treatment services.
