Fast Track 100

Adam Share, 49, had 30 years’ experience in the waste industry sector when he founded his own company in 2006. Initially dealing only with hazardous waste, the Staffordshirebased business has expanded to include the disposal of non-hazardous industrial waste. It aims to find environmentally friendly solutions — including offering a consulting service on how businesses can increase recycling and minimise waste. Customers include small and large businesses as well as public sector bodies. Sales hit £23.8m last year, and in December, it secured a £39m funding package from growth capital firm BGF and others to support its acquisition of Environmental Resource Group. It also acquired Birmingham business Haz Environmental in September and plans to expand its service to offer more recycling services.
