Back in November last year, Hughes and Salvidge Holdings acquired Valley Trading Ltd, a waste management business and facility based in Tetbury in Gloucestershire.
Valley Trading now comes under the Hughes and Salvidge Holdings umbrella of companies along with Hughes and Salvidge, H&S Metals, K&B Crushers and Aasvogel.
Valley Trading is a highly respected firm in the locality and permitted to import, sort, recover and store waste and recycled material.
Its service portfolio encompasses skip hire, grab hire, muck away & site clearance and crusher & plant hire.
Since buying the company, originally established in 1981, the past few months have predominantly been spent on bringing its facilities up-to-date and raising health and safety standards at the site, located on the Babdown Industrial Estate.
We have a host of future plans for the 8.9 acre site including potentially adding a raised picking station to reduce men and machines working at the same level and to help further maximise the recycling potential of waste that is brought into the yard.
We have this within our facility at Aasvogel and it works really well. You can read more about it here: http://www.aasvogel.co.uk/news/aasvogel-install-new-picking-line-to-enhance-recycling-process/2013/10.
Keep an eye out for more updates on how things are progressing at Valley Trading. In the meantime you can visit their dedicated website: http://www.valleytrading.co.uk/.
