As one of the world’s leading incinerator companies we’ve decided to expand … not move.
Following our continued global success and a sustained period of growth, we recognised that if we are to maintain our position as one of the world’s leading incinerator companies we needed to increase both our production and support capacity. We also realised that in order to do this we had a choice to make. Up sticks and move everything to bigger premises that were maybe out of the area. Or … find additional premises that were near to our present location so that we could maintain the close links we have forged with our local community and that wouldn’t mean unwanted upheaval for our existing staff.
We decided that our strong community connections and staff obligations were equally important as our need for additional people and space.
Consequently, we are delighted to announce that we have recently taken possession of the historic Wharfingers House that is less than one mile from our existing workshops and offices. This is an early 19th-century canal-side warehouse now tastefully converted into three-storey office accommodation and into which we hope to be moving before the end of next month.
Over the years we have been in business we are particularly proud of the close links we have developed with our local community. Not only our talented designers and engineers but also our administration staff – many of whom live in close proximity to our existing headquarters building. Now having the additional space afforded by Wharfingers House means we can confidently expand … without having to move.
As part of our future plans, we are currently looking to recruit approximately 50 new staff members in several areas of our business – including production, engineering and servicing.
Once again, and in keeping with our long-standing recruitment policy, we are keen to attract locally based personnel. This also reflects our determination to work, whenever possible, with off-site suppliers who are based nearby and in addition, we liaise closely with Tameside Council as well as other local organisations in order to extend these invaluable community connections.
We can’t tell you how excited we all are with these recent developments and also the prospects of moving into such historic premises. We think that it is exactly the right move that will help to promote even further growth and success for our company and enable us to consolidate our position as one of the world’s leading incinerator companies. Just as important, it also ensures we maintain our local links and community connections.

Wharfinger House was originally constructed by the Peak Forest Canal Company and it played its part in ensuring the success of this 15-mile canal that was used to transport limestone from the Peak District quarries as well as coal to the local cotton mills. Today the canal forms part of the ‘Cheshire Ring’ enabling leisure boaters to navigate a circular route around the historic county of Cheshire.
