£2.5 Million Investment for Teesside Business

04 December 2019 by CSG

The UK’s largest privately-owned waste management company has invested £2.5 million in operations at its Teesside site, confirming its ongoing commitment to jobs in the North East.

CSG, which operates from more than 27 locations across the country, invited the Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, Councillor Billy Wells, to tour its Middlesbrough facilities and cut the ribbon on a new office building.

Jen Cartmell, CSG’s treatment director, said: “A significant programme of investment at our site at Bolckow Industrial Estate has seen us move into new offices and upgrade our operational facilities.

“Over the past three years, we have invested in a centrifuge system for oily sludge and introduced a new treatment for the processing of soluble oil. Along with a newly-created hazardous waste transfer station, replacement vehicles and an improved transport yard, this investment protects existing jobs and provides CSG with the foundations for future growth in the region.”

Councillor Wells and customers from across the North East were shown around the site by regional business manager Craig Dufferweil, who explained how CSG receives, treats and processes industrial by-products as part of its aim to minimise the amount of waste going to landfill.

CSG’s latest investment in Teesside follows the company’s 2016 acquisition of the Recyc-Oil business, based at East Middlesbrough Industrial Estate, which processes more than 8 million litres of oily liquid waste each year, mainly from the marine sector.

Jen Cartmell added: “CSG is a family-owned business, now in its 85th year, and we have had a presence in Teesside for more than a decade. We now employ 35 people across our three Teesside sites and are very proud that this includes the development of apprentice operators and trainee HGV drivers.

“We are proud to support industrial growth and employment opportunities in the North East and opening these expanded offices and waste processing facility demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the region.”
