Beauparc is Ireland’s leading waste management company. The Group owns the Panda and Greenstar brands and entered the UK market in 2016 acquiring the New Earth Solutions Group. The Beauparc Group further expanded into the UK market recently by acquiring WSR in Widnes and Scotwaste in Edinburgh.
AWM has proven longevity in the industry having been in the business for over 18 years and has seen the business transform and grow from strength to strength enabling it to work in partnership with Key Local Authorities and other major waste management companies. AWM acknowledge that they have been fortunate enough to have a great team of staff who have helped to drive the business forward.
Brian McCabe, Managing Director at Beauparc said "We are very pleased to conclude the acquisition of AWM as this adds to our growth strategy in the UK and brings a level of scale and processing capabilities to Beauparc. It is our intention to continue with what is already in place throughout AWM, and to build / develop this business even further, ensuring AWM continues to grow whilst still providing the quality of service that customers have been used to. This acquisition is part of our strategic growth plans for the UK”.
We are delighted that John Brooksbank will remain with the business to assist in the further growth and support the current senior management team including Tim Shapcott Commercial & Business Development Director and Colette Bloom Finance Director AWM. Eamonn Hanley will take on the Operations and Logistics Director role with immediate effect and the business will be supported from the wider Beauparc Group and management team.
AWM will continue to be known and trade as AWM. Services will continue as normal from the company offices and sites. The AWM office will become the UK head office for Beauparc's UK division.
Both Brian and all the AWM management team want to reassure its customers that there will be no disruption to operations and business and business shall continue as usual.

What our customers say
Paul Speake Sheridan UK
“We’ve worked with AWM for many years and always find the service prompt and reliable. The reporting and compliance details are important for our business, and we’re keen to keep our recycling rates as high as possible.”
Ben Lukey AMA Waste Services
“AWM are our preferred waste disposal partner in the West Yorkshire area. They have provided waste and aggregate services on a daily basis for AWM Waste for a number of years now. It is critical for a company like ourselves to have services carried out by reliable and professional suppliers, our clients include Blue Chip Companies and High Street Brands and it’s therefore imperative that our services are supplied on time in a professional manner, whilst meeting the highest health and safety standards. There is no better example of one of our suppliers meeting this criteria than AWM, who put drivers through extensive training and who have an excellent customer service team in our office. AWM have invested in cutting edge recycling technology at their premises and have one of the most impressive set ups we have seen across the UK. Everyone at AMA Waste could not recommend AWM highly enough and we look forward to working with them for many more years.”
Louise Hartley Leeds Beckett University
“Leeds Beckett University have been working in partnership with AWM since February 2014 and during this time we have not only received excellent service, but have also seen our working relationship grow. During the mobilisation period, AWM worked very hard to understand and accommodate the needs of the University. We moved from a single waste stream to segregating general, food and dry recycling so AWM worked with us to help educate both staff and students in the changes. We expected the transition to take longer than it did, but I credit the success to the initial planning that both organisations took.
