A little over a year ago, we were named as one of the fastest growing businesses in the Sheffield City Region and since then we are delighted to announce that our growth has continued.
Earlier this year we acquired a further warehousing facility at Hellaby, just minutes from the M1/M18 junction, giving us even greater depth and diversity to fulfil a wide range of 3PL requirements.
This now gives us over 600,000 sq ft of warehousing capacity and our skills and expertise, OTIF figures of 99.7% and continued BRC AA accreditation make us an attractive 3PL provider for many national blue-chip businesses.
Diversification has been very much our focus too. Our pyrolysis plant is now up and running and our new website launched which gives lots of information about how this game changing technology can integrate with sustainable business plans to generate energy, and other by products, including carbon char and oil.
“It’s been another fast paced, dynamic six months at Carlton Forest Group as we continue to expand the 3PL side of the business and showcase the new pyrolysis technology,” said Graham White Group Commercial Director Carlton Forest Group. “We continue to capitalise on our efficiencies, warehousing facilities and service levels and, through our strategic business plan, have attracted significant businesses who appreciate the bespoke nature of our offering, our knowledgeable team and efficient operations.”
The pyrolysis plant continues to be of significant interest to the business community and waste, energy and recycling industries. It is the only type of continuous pyrolysis plant in the UK and Carlton Forest Group were proud to acquire the manufacturing side of the business in South Africa last year.
This gives the businesses – IRR Manufacturing and IRR Waste2Energy – the flexibility to consult with, specify, deliver, install and commission solutions for business to tackle the new ways of dealing with waste material that will be required to fulfil Environmental Plans and Government directives.
“It’s really important that we begin to find new ways of disposing of our waste and this technology, with our particular focus on waste tyres, can help nations across the world enjoy sustainable energy creation and other products in a truly circular process,” said Graham. “It is this type of visionary approach and drive to succeed that has positioned us as one of the most forward thinking, independent warehousing and logistics companies in the UK and this reputation is now being replicated in our waste-to-energy business, IRR Waste2Energy.”
