In 1996, we became the first waste management company to be listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE). This sparked a series of acquisitions that would position us as South Africa’s foremost waste management company.
Growing by solving progressively more waste problems
Our first acquistion was Waste-Tron, giving us a strong foothold in KwaZulu-Natal and access to the Shongweni landfill site.
We brought medical waste into our solution set with the acquisition of Edward Card and National Hygiene.
In 1997, the acquisition of Waste-Tech gave us a formidable national presence and critical mass across all our operations.
As the new millennium kicked in, a combination of organic growth and further acquisition positioned EnviroServ to provide complete waste management solutions to industrial and domestic customers throughout Africa.
2000 - we obtained a shareholding in Chargold, a company specialising in the beneficiation of carbon waste. We bought the remaining Chargold shares in 2004.
