Corby based Axil Integrated Services is celebrating the hire of its 100th employee, following a year that saw the National waste management company grow by 100% with revenue jumping from £11m to £22m. The company is on track to deliver significant growth in the coming year.
The company helps businesses including several household names such as Whirlpool, Birdseye, McLaren and LEVC work towards zero waste by encouraging re-use, reducing manual handling, increasing recycling rates and eliminating waste in their facilities.
“We’re delighted with the growth in our business. The Environmental aspect within ESG is becoming a priority for many businesses. The UK Government is targeting a 65 per cent municipal recycling rate by 2035, so waste segregation must be the focus for any proactive waste partner. We’re working with a number of dynamic, forward-looking companies to help them achieve zero waste while reducing their operating costs,” said Ed Pigg, Managing Director at Axil Integrated Services.
Most organisations generate cardboard packaging, plastic and food waste – and some also deal with valuable materials like metals and cooking oil. Axil has also supported the rollout of rapid testing by providing waste services to several Covid testing sites across the UK.
By passing value from recycled materials back to the customer, Axil helps to reduce businesses waste management costs. In some instances, the revenue from waste rebates totals more than the cost of the waste services provided.
Moreover, Axil regularly reviews the market, giving customers the best value on materials. This helps organisations work towards cost reductions through efficient waste management processes.
“Axil has been key to Whirlpool achieving Zero Waste to Landfill at both our HQ and Yate Factory. We outlined our needs, and the Axil team uses all its skills and experience to ensure that we followed the waste hierarchy. That meant not just avoiding waste to landfill but actively seeking out better ways to then recycle – and doing so in a way that produced a better quality of waste stream whilst driving down costs for the whole operation,” added David Sherrington, UK & Ireland Energy, Environmental, Health & Safety Manager at Whirlpool.
