NOW ONE of Scotland’s major players in facilities management and recycling, the NWH Group is seeing its business rapidly expanding thanks to significant on-going investment into its people, facilities and vehicles. So much so, that the company’s fleet of Harsh skiploaders and hookloaders is now moving over 1,500 skips and containers each week!

With its head office in Midlothian, NWH Group began operations in 1967 running tippers to serve the local Edinburgh and Central Belt construction industry. Now, 50 years on, the NWH vehicle fleet boasts 150 trucks with over a third now dedicated to waste handling and recycling work.

‘Whilst our tipper work remains steady, the real opportunity for the company to grow currently lies in waste recycling’ says operations director Craig Williams. ‘To actually make that happen, we have to continually invest in every aspect of the business, building up strength in our people, our facilities, our resources and our vehicle fleet. Recently we’ve made significant corporate acquisitions too, buying out the solid waste activities of Clearwater as well as direct competitors such as Caleco and DJ Laing.
