Williams a Williams Cyf Case Study

With WRAP Cymru’s help, materials management company Williams a Williams Cyf is making the most of growing demand

As well as the help and support received, the doors that have opened as a result of working with WRAP, and the contacts we’ve made, have been priceless.

Williams a Williams Cyf has been in the business of waste since 1920. Its humble beginnings saw the company operate with a single lorry, but nowadays the business manages a waste transfer station, bulking station and a bring site for farm plastic. A wide variety of materials pass through the company’s gates, and so anticipating growing demand for its service, Williams a Williams Cyf asked WRAP for assistance in making the most of it.

WRAP provided the company with an interim manager, tasked with the job of gauging developing market trends and identifying the right equipment for Williams a Williams Cyf now and in the future. 

With the help of an ARID grant worth over £120,000, the company now plans on investing in a sorting system that will more efficiently separate card, paper, steel, aluminium and plastics, plus a baler that will help reduce transport costs.

Aside from the equipment investment, Williams a Williams Cyf is also considering the possibility of utilising renewable technology in its operations, and hopes to install a solar energy installation with the view to making the business more self-sufficient.

Meurig Jones, managing director of Williams a Williams Cyf, says that WRAP’s support has been invaluable, adding that “as well as the help and support received, the doors that have opened as a result of working with WRAP, and the contacts we’ve made, have been priceless”.
