One51 buys UK business H&T

Plastics and environmental group One51 has purchased UK-based specialist industrial services business, H&T Labour and Vacuumation Services (H&T) for an undisclosed sum.

The acquisition will expand the Dublin-based niche investment group’s ClearCircle Environmental hazardous waste subsidiary, which will subsume the H&T business.

“The acquisition of H&T is part of our strategy to position and expand ClearCircle within specialist niche areas of the environmental services sector in Ireland and the UK,” said One51 chief executive, Alan Walsh.

“This repositioning and expansion will continue as we move forward and will take advantage of strong legislative drivers and recovering economic conditions in our end markets,” he added.

Last September, One51 completed the takeover of UK business Greenway Environmental Services, which has since been successfully integrated into ClearCircle’s activities.

Last month, One51 announced an €8m investment strategy which will see it upgrade its Cork-based plastics facility and expand its plastics manufacturing operations in China.
