Craggs Environmental to double in size, coverage and capacity after acquiring LCM Environmental

North West and Yorkshire based company, Craggs Environmental Ltd, is delighted to announce that on 18th December 2019 they acquired the LCM Environmental Ltd business and combined the two companies to double their size, coverage and operational capacity.

Craggs Environmental which has a large operational depot in Padiham, East Lancashire is one of the UK’s leading fuel and tank infrastructure servicing companies. With various sites across the UK, the primarily Hampshire based LCM Environmental has a rich history in the industry and provide a broad range of fuel management and environmental services, which include man entry tank cleaning, fuel sampling, polishing and tank decommissioning.

Chris Bingham, CEO at Craggs Environmental comments:

“This is really exciting news and I’m delighted to welcome the team from LCM Environmental into the business.

This acquisition not only provides us with a wide range of new equipment and a new fleet of vehicles such as vacuum tankers and fuel polishing rigs but we are also joining our teams to over 40 members of staff bringing together a vast range of skills and industry knowledge; increasing the services to our large combined customer base.  

Both businesses have a combined history of over 32 years in the industry, so, I am confident that this acquisition will not only provide a seamless transition for LCM customers but also provide a high-quality service which puts us in the running to be the largest fuel service maintenance company in the UK.

We have a very exciting and busy time ahead of us, as the opportunities for the expanded business with such a broad range of skills and experience are simply huge.”
