Waste firm looking to expand as growth continues
6:37pm Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
A WASTE management specialist near Southampton has signalled the next chapter of growth.
The TJ Group has an enlarged board of directors and launched two new services.
Three senior figures have been promoted to oversee the expanding company, which has 120 staff, a fleet of 80 trucks and 3,000 customers across Hampshire, Dorset, Sussex and Surrey.
Operations director John Gosling has become managing director, replacing founder Terry Higgins, who is now group chairman.
Neil Glazebrook, previously transport manager, is director of TJ Transport and Jamie Higgins, who was operations manager, is director of TJ Transport and TJ Waste & Recycling.
The senior management change comes as TJ unveils two new services – general haulage and night work for road improvement schemes.
TJ has acquired five articulated trucks for its new general haulage service, working for a number of hauliers who require a helping hand to fulfil customer demand; the vehicles carry ship containers – called ‘boxes’ in the logistics industry.
In a separate development, the company is supplying 15 vehicles to transport aggregates to and from road improvement sites during nights, including at the A3, A31, A34 and up to the M25.
Meanwhile TJ has been supplying recycling and general waste bins for a range of public events.
The company, headquartered at Charity Farm, Wickham, is also supplying 1,100-litre Euro Bins for the Portsmouth International Kite Festival this weekend and for the Great South Run in Portsmouth on October 26-27.
