FGS Organics has acquired Envar Composting, the UK’s largest waste in-vessel and windrow composting facility, from the ADAS Group.
Envar’s facility in Cambridgeshire produces PAS100 and CQP-certified soil conditioner for the agricultural, viticultural and horticultural markets, through the processing of green, food and other organic waste.
FGS provides recycling solutions for the agricultural, industrial, energy and utility sectors, and says the move will significantly increase the capacity of its compost operations.
A company statement says: “The acquisition is the latest addition to the portfolio of companies owned by Trevor Heathcote, and forms a natural progression for FGS Organics which already supplies compost solutions within a portfolio of services.”
Heathcote said the acquisition would strengthen FGS’s recycling operations in south and east England.
Colin Speller, managing director of ADAS, said the sale of Envar allowed the group to concentrate on providing “ideas, specialist knowledge and solutions to secure our food and enhance the environment”.
“We believe that FGS Organics is a highly suitable owner of the Envar business that is well positioned to develop and grow the business to the benefit of clients, staff and suppliers.”
