Environmental and land services provider, The NWH Group (NWH), has secured its first site south of the border, in Newcastle. 

The business, which currently operates from eight locations across Scotland, opened the Newcastle site this month. With a local operations manager already in post, nine further new jobs have been created, and there are already plans for further expansion and more job opportunities in the near future. 

Mark Williams, CEO at NWH Group, said: “We are delighted to be opening our first English site which will enable us to deliver our range of services to businesses in and around Newcastle. This marks a real milestone for us as we continue to forge ahead with our growth strategy for geographical expansion. 

“Above and beyond delivering an excellent service to our customers, we are all aiming to make a difference to the environment in which we operate, and we look forward to making a positive impact in Newcastle.”

Initially the business will predominantly offer skip hire, and it will gradually expand the core offering to include other environmental, waste and recycling services as well as access to the fleet of NWH vehicles such as tippers, grab lorries, low loaders and ejector trailers. 

Andrew Turnbull, NWH’s Operations Manager in Newcastle, said: “We are looking forward to getting the site up and running. NWH is a strong family business with a focus on safety and compliance, and an open and friendly way of working which enables us to deliver exceptional customer service. I’m really looking forward to taking this proposition to the market place in Newcastle.”
