Orwak acquires Easi Recycling

Easi Recycling Ltd, the York based waste equipment and recycling company, has been acquired by Orwak AB (Sansac), a leader in compaction and baling solutions for solid waste materials at source.

It is claimed the move will create the UK’s most capable and dominant supplier of balers and compactors. As of 2 January 2017 the new company name will be Orwak Easi UK Ltd.

This arrangement will see Orwak Easi become the UK distributors of Orwak compactors, baling and briquetting systems which the company has manufactured in Sweden since 1971. Orwak Easi will be able to offer new machines and innovation to the UK, while still supporting current machines.

Speaking about the development, Kerrie Barrow, sales director said, ‘As well as improving the offer and levels of service to existing customers of Easi Recycling, the creation of Orwak Easi will enable greater market penetration and growth for the combined business. It has already seen the creation of five new jobs, with more vacancies being filled in January.’
