OSS Group

This Merseyside company collects waste oil and uses its own refinery to recycle it into fuel oils, which it then sells. The business was created in 2000 when OSS acquired a business rival, Greenway Holdings, in a £15m deal backed by Dunedin Capital Partners. The company also offers services such as hazardous-waste collection and site cleaning, and sells industrial parts-washers that recycle their own solvents in built-in mini-refineries. Under Andrew McNair, managing director, profits have risen 72% a year from £1.2m in 2005 to £6.2m in 2008.
