Englefield Capital, a private equity fund company which specialises in equity investments in middle market companies across Europe, has purchased Oakley Waste Management – one of the largest waste operators in the East Midlands.
Oakley Waste Manage-ment, formerly a family owned business, is based at a five acre site in Corby and has been operating since 2000.
The site comprises two large buildings where waste is taken after collection, which is then separated and sent to specialist recyclers all around the world with a small amount sent for landfill.
The waste management industry is a rapidly expanding market and this recent investment deal by Englefield Capital is likely to be one of several investments by the firm over the coming months.
Shoosmiths’ Milton Keynes team has recently advised on a diverse range of deals, including the £20m acquisition of ICS in Canada for Radstone Technology Plc.
