AN MP has praised L&S Waste Management for its innovative concrete operation, following a visit to its head office in Fareham.
Member of Parliament for Meon Valley George Hollingbery was invited to meet the firm’s managing director Mick Balch.
The pair discussed proposed new policies put forward by the Department for Transport.
If implemented, the new rules would see changes to industry regulations and directly impact on the company.
Mr Balch said: ‘L&S concrete is an important and rapidly expanding part of our business.
‘We have invested significantly in the most advanced plant and are now the largest operator of these type of vehicles in the south.
‘We’re delighted that Mr Hollingbery has shown an interest in our operation and, as a successful businessman and entrepreneur himself, he was quick to see the benefits of this type of operation to the construction industry.’
Following the visit, Mr Hollingbery said: ‘It’s encouraging to see companies within my constituency that are thriving and investing in new technology and infrastructure.
‘It’s also good to see some of the environmental initiatives being employed at L&S Waste, such as the use of recycled aggregate in its concrete.’
L&S Waste employs more than 100 people at its facilities across Portsmouth and Southampton.
It is looking to expand the team as the ambitious firm continues to grow.
