Perthshire-based waste management company Binn Group has taken over the business of long-established Perth firm Holden Environmental.
Holden’s Shore Road site and operations are now part of Binn Group, which will continue trading from the yard, guaranteeing the jobs of all 10 employees.
Holden has operated from the Perth site for more than 70 years, developing the original scrap business into a skip hire, waste management and recycling company.
In August 2014, MRW reported that Binn Skips had undergone a rebranding as Binn Group to mark a shift from landfill and skip hire to a wider waste management role. It now employs around 100 people.
A spokesperson for Holden said: “It was determined that the long-term success of the business was best secured by selling to the Binn Group, which has undertaken to continue the first-class service that our loyal customers have come to expect over the years.
“We have worked closely with Binn’s senior management team to ensure a smooth handover of operations for our employees, customers and suppliers. We wish them well in their new venture.”
Binn Group chief executive Allan MacGregor said the deal met the company’s aspirations for a Perth base.
“Binn Group has a long-term plan to expand into urban satellite sites in key locations throughout Scotland,” said MacGregor. “Buying Holden’s well-established business within Perth fulfils the first phase of that ambition.”
