IEG Acquires UK-Based Capital Compactors Limited

Impact Environmental Group (IEG) has acquired Capital Compactors Limited (CCL).  CCL is the leading service provider of waste compactors and recycling balers in the UK.  CCL becomes the fourth major UK waste products and services business to join IEG alongside Taylor, DuraFlex and UKCM.

CCL was founded in 2000 by Alistair and Jo Lindsay, both of whom have led the business since its inception. CCL provides and services waste compactors and recycling balers that waste operators and end-users acquire through leases or rental contracts, as well as upfront equipment purchases.

IEG’s decision to acquire CCL supports its customer-service oriented growth plan, which centres on building a comprehensive waste solutions business in the UK through ‘Best of British’ brands focussed on sustainability.  IEG anticipates a seamless transition as all of CCL’s employees remain in place including Managing Director, Daniel Parsons and Technical Director, Laurence Lindsay, in addition to support by IEG’s EMEA Managing Director, Mike Braddock.

Jo Lindsay, Co-Founder of CCL said: “When Alistair & I started CCL in March 2000 we had a dream to one day become the UK’s leading supplier of top-quality waste compaction and recycling machinery.  23 years on we believe we have achieved that dream, together with our amazing workforce, and the support of our loyal customers, suppliers and business associates.

As the company has grown, CCL’s brand has become highly respected throughout the waste industry.  Its reputation for providing reliable equipment and excellent service has attracted many offers to acquire the business, but for us to consider handing over our much-loved company we had to feel sure whoever took over would be the perfect fit.  We truly feel we have found that in IEG.  

With the environmentally conscious companies within their Group, we believe we have an ideal compatibility with IEG’s values, culture and strategy, and their acquisition will allow CCL to reach its full potential and continue onto the next level.  More importantly, the further expansion offers exciting opportunities to all its staff members – our highly valued Team Capital – who have made CCL a company to be immensely proud of!  

Mike Braddock adds: “The acquisition of CCL adds yet another premier service offering to the IEG EMEA portfolio.  We’ve been so fortunate to build the EMEA family with such respected companies now adding another in CCL.   Their value and reputation in the waste industry make us a more complete supplier to our core Customers by providing Bins, Wear Parts, Services and now Compactors and Balers.”
