Gwella Contracting acquires Aspire Environmental
Gwella Contracting Services, the largest Asbestos Removal contractor in the South West, has recently announced the acquisition of Bristol-based Aspire Environmental, a successful local asbestos removal business. The acquisition will enable Gwella to expand its capabilities in Bristol and the surrounding areas.
Paul Foster, Managing Director of Aspire, who has over 30 years of experience in the asbestos removal and insulation business, is excited about the acquisition, saying,
“Joining forces will allow me to focus more on meeting customer requirements, whilst opening doors to new opportunities that only a larger, ISO accredited company such as Gwella can commit to. Working within Gwella as the Regional Director will allow me to bring my knowledge and ideas to more businesses in the area with the backing and support of Gwella’s administrative team and resources. I’m looking forward to spending more time focusing on customer needs.”
This partnership will allow Gwella to service new and existing contracts more efficiently. By consolidating Gwella’s current Bristol resources with Aspire’s team, a Bristol ‘hub’ will be created to deliver services to the di-rect region as well as along the M4 corridor into England & Wales.
Kevin Webb, Gwella Contracting’s Managing Director, is equally delighted with the new opportunities of the acquisition, saying,
“Paul Foster has built a carefully managed business over the years, working with some really great customers. We want to build upon the service that he delivers by offering our extensive resources and expertise. Bristol is a key region for our expansion and we’re looking forward to delivering Gwella’s quality services to Aspire’s customers, whilst building new relationships with other businesses.”
Gwella’s growth plan, which has seen the company increase its employee count from just 2 Directors in 2019 to over 100 employees in 2023, will also see the company take on new team members across the board; from Operatives & Supervisors, through to more managerial positions.
