The King’s Lynn-based business, which provides skip hire and waste services to homes and businesses across the UK, has undergone a huge transformation over the three-year period since its acquisition. Having reported year-on-year growth of 14% in 2017, the business is forecast to match this in 2018, thereby delivering an exceptional 28% growth in two years.
Network Waste has invested heavily since its acquisition by Reconomy, with technology enablement and IT infrastructure being its leading drivers. The business now boasts a suite of mobile applications and a world-renowned CRM system that delivers an exceptional level of service to its customers all over the UK.
Mike Taylor, General Manager of Network Waste commented, “The business was in need of a radical overhaul to raise the standards to those required not only by our parent group, Reconomy, but to those demanded by our customers.”
Network Waste is also committed to developing and nurturing its own people, with a strong focus on training, thereby creating the right environment for its people to advance their careers.
Dale Parker, Head of Sales and Service at Network Waste said, “Having been with the business for almost 5 years, I’ve witnessed a whole host of changes throughout this time. The progress and opportunity afforded not only to me, but others throughout the business has been exciting.
“We have a clear career path, and this is something we never felt before. There is a real positive culture that helps people grow and we no longer feel like we are simply going around in circles on a day to day basis.”
Network Waste has developed a UK-wide portfolio of pre-approved, third-party supply partners that oversee and implement its service offering. By only using fully compliant, competitively-priced suppliers that are local to the customer, Network Waste minimises waste transportation costs, thereby helping to ensure an affordable and reliable service.
The company is now seeking to further build on its recent achievements by expanding several internal departments, including its sales team.
