SHREDALL SDS Group, the largest independently owned confidential waste shredding and paper recycling company in the UK, today announced that it is opening a new state-of-the-art depot in Bellshill, Scotland. The new Shredall Ltd site, which will be officially opened on 14 November 2019, comes as the business expands its operations in the country.
The new 17,000 sq ft depot will serve as Shredall SDS Group’s regional hub and help it extend the reach of its shredding, recycling, and scanning services to a rapidly growing client base in Scotland. The site will also support the organisation’s environmental pledge by growing its innovative paper cup recycling service.
The depot will also allow the group to provide textile, uniform, media and hard drive shredding both onsite and offsite, which the business estimates will see its annual revenue double in Scotland in the next financial year.
Shredall SDS Group has consistently expanded its operations in Scotland since its first depot opened in 2007. This latest investment will see four new hires to operate its machinery, and another 3 new office staff, with the team set to double in size by January 2020.
Nik Williams, managing director at Shredall SDS Group, believes the depot represents a new era for the business.
“We’re excited to move into our new Bellshill site and work with more Scottish businesses to securely dispose and recycle their confidential materials. We’ve invested in a new cutting-edge Vecoplan shredder, a Kadent PAAL Pacomat baler and new IT equipment to support our sales and logistics teams. Our Bellshill depot will allow us to reach both Glasgow and Edinburgh more quickly and help cut down our carbon footprint as part of our ongoing efforts to achieve a carbon neutral certification.”
“The staff here are part of Shredall Scotland’s success, and particular credit must go to Brian McCulloch, Shredall Ltd Scotland General Manager, who has consistently explored new opportunities with the help of his hardworking team, including his own two sons. We’re excited to see the business continue to innovate and eventually build our first SDS Document Storage and Scanning Depot in Scotland.”
Shredall SDS Group will officially open the new depot on 14 November 2019 and will be hosting journalists from both local and national publications to see the new machinery in action, with lunch to be provided by an artisan stone baked pizza van on site.
