A waste management company in Northamptonshire – which works with some of the UK’s biggest names – has received a high-profile visit following its latest national awards success.
Axil Integrated Services, based in Corby, has been shortlisted in the Partnership Excellence – Commercial category at the MRW National Recycling Awards 2020 for its work with Cummins, a global leader in the design, manufacture, and supply of engines and generators.
Its shortlisting attracted the attention of Corby and East Northamptonshire MP Tom Pursglove who visited Axil at the end of October, to congratulate staff. During his visit he met with managing director Edward Pigg and James Astor, chairman and chief executive of Regen Holdings Ltd – an integrated waste management group which includes Axil, Whites Recycling, and Fernbrook Bio.
Axil managing director Edward Pigg said: “We were delighted to welcome Tom to Axil. He was very interested to hear about our growth and is keen to support us in our work to help blue-chip companies to further improve their environmental performance.
“It was good to have the opportunity to speak to our MP about the Government’s furlough scheme and how it had been of help to us.
“We were also pleased to inform him that, as a result of our growth, we continue to offer employment opportunities to local people here in Corby and at our central waste facility in Cannock.”
Corby and East Northamptonshire MP Tom Pursglove added: “I was delighted to visit Axil, and meet with Edward and James, to find out more about the business and the work they do. I was particularly interested to learn about their sophisticated processes around the handling of hazardous waste and it was great to meet with other employees, and to come away with useful feedback for my ministerial colleagues. The business, which is being recognised for its achievements in improving the environment, is an impressive local employer, providing high-quality local jobs and I look forward to seeing it grow and prosper in the years ahead.”
Axil has been shortlisted in the MRW National Recycling Awards for the way it manages multiple waste streams at Cummins’ multiple sites, including Darlington and Stamford, and for helping to educate Cummins’ workforce about recycling.
Axil has achieved savings for Cummins through sustainable cost reductions and improved segregation efforts. Axil’s waste process improvements saved Cummins more than 4,000 hours in manual labour. The company also achieved ‘Zero to Landfill’ in 2013 and Axil’s work has been crucial in sustaining this.
The awards will be held virtually on Wednesday, January 27.
