Middlewich business acquired by Belgian waste management giant

EUROPEAN waste management business Indaver has acquired Middlewich waste management specialist BIP Chemical Holdings and BIP Environmental in a major deal.

BIP Chemical Holdings (including BIP Organics and Centec International) and BIP Environmental provide an end-to-end provision for hazardous waste, recycling solvents for clients in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Clients include Shell, Certas Energy, Veolia and DuPont.

North west law firm SAS Daniels LLP advised chairman and sole shareholder Mike Bennett on the sale.

Bennett formed BIP Chemical Holdings in 2006 and BIP Environmental in 2012. The business employs 75 people, mainly chemical engineers, process engineers and senior operators. Turnover in the current financial year is over £12 million.

Belgium-based Indaver has facilities and operations in more than 30 locations including Belgium, Germany, Ireland, UK, the Netherlands, France, Italy, Spain and Portugal. The Indaver Group manages five million tonnes of waste every year and employs 1,900 people.

Paul Tyrer, partner in the corporate group at SAS Daniels LLP, said:

“We were delighted when Mike appointed us to advise on this significant transaction. BIP is recognised as a market leader in its specialist field. Indaver was the right fit from the start and the acquisition provides the buyer with a platform to serve its industrial customers in the UK even better.”

Prior to setting up BIP Chemical Holdings, Bennett was a chemical trader in recycled solvents for more than 20 years. He said:

“After building up BIP over more than 20 years, it was essential that we found the right business with the right ethos to move it forward. Indaver brings unrivalled expertise and has plans to further invest in the site. I’m confident that I’m leaving the business in safe hands. The acquisition is great news for our customers and our extremely talented team.”

The legal team at SAS Daniels LLP comprised Paul Tyrer, Matthew Canfield, Rob Hughes and Warren Moores. Tax and accountancy support on the deal was provided by Lee Warburton at Voiseys. Liz Bruce and Duncan Cathie led a team from Brodies LLP that advised the buyer Indaver UK Limited.
