Forward Waste Management to open manufacturing plant in Barry

Welsh waste management company Forward Waste Management has announced it will lease a warehouse unit in Barry to expand its waste processing equipment business Enviroquip.

The Cardiff-based company has signed a 10-year lease on a warehouse in the Atlantic Trading Estate in Barry for the expansion of subsidiary Enviroquip.

Lyndon Ward, chief executive officer of Forward Waste Management, said: “This move will enable us to significantly increase the production of waste compactors, balers and containers in line with demand as well as creating extra space at our Cardiff facility for the anticipated increase in recycling output there.”

Enviroquip will manufacture most of its product range at the Barry premises. Neil Francis, Head of Knight Frank’s Logistics and Industrial division in Cardiff, said: “We received a good level of enquiries in this property due to the height it offered, gantry cranes and generous external area.

“Barry has a long, proud history of manufacturing and it will be great to see the tradition revived with the arrival of Enviroquip.”

The company also plans to implement an apprenticeship scheme at the site to encourage young people to embark on long-term careers in Barry.
