Food waster recycler PDM Group has taken over a Welsh company which specialises in collecting and processing farmers’ dead livestock.
Clutton (Agricultural) Limited, based in Wrexham, which provides a service across north Wales and the Midlands will be operated as part of PDM’s ‘high risk animal by-product’ division.
Fallen farm animal stock will transported to PDM’s Granox plant at Widnes for disposal via rendering and a bubbling fluidised bed (BFB) boiler plant.
PDM is part of the SARIA Group and provides fallen stock collection services throughout Europe. Founded in Doncaster in 1926, the company has an annual turnover in excess of £200m and employs over 1,000 people at 23 sites across the UK.
Philip Simpson, commercial director for PDM, said: “The acquisition of Clutton’s fallen stock business is an important investment for us and it fits perfectly within our evolving portfolio of services.
“Over the coming weeks, our priority will be to develop the business to enhance the level and quality of service provided to customers in the local area and to members of the National Fallen Stock Company.”
- ReFood has achieved the Publicly Available Specification (PAS) 110 certification at its Doncaster AD facility which was opened in December 2011 and collects and recycles 45,000 tonnes of food from businesses across the Yorkshire region.
