MACCLESFIELD-based Tidy Planet has brought Richard Hart on board as a project engineer, to support the company through a sustained period of growth and increased client enquiries.
Richard joins the organic waste solutions company with over 30 years’ experience working within the engineering sector – managing multi-million-pound projects – and will be heading up medium and large-scale projects in both of the business’s specialist composting and Waste-to-Energy (WtE) divisions.
Continued growth and an upsurge in large-scale, technical enquiries are two key drivers behind the company’s recruitment drive.
Commenting on the new appointment, Tidy Planet’s director James Tyler said: “The recent acceleration of projects and enquiries we’ve seen in Europe, Scandinavia and Asia means we need to continue investing in skilled personnel, in order to effectively cope with demand and drive the business forward.
“With lots in the headlines about the circular economy, going ‘green’ and waste export restrictions, more companies than ever are looking to harness their waste as a valuable resource, and are turning to composting or WtE solutions to help them achieve this.
“Richard will play a crucial role in managing the ‘conception-to-completion’ process of our UK and international contracts – from liaising with customers to determine their requirements, to managing all of the technical activities – to ensure complete quality and accuracy.”
The news follows Tidy Planet’s recent expansion into Scandinavia – when the firm appointed its first Norwegian distributor – and the news of its recent oil and gas project win in the Sahara Desert.
