Reconomy, the UK provider of outsourced waste management and environmental compliance services, has signed an agreement to acquire the Noventiz Group of Companies from German PE house Seasfort Advisors, taking the first step into the international market.
Based in Cologne and founded in 2007, Noventiz provides packaging compliance services for commercial customers in Germany. The deal marks an important milestone in Reconomy’s strategic plan, as the first overseas acquisition made by the group. It also further expands Reconomy’s successful compliance division, spearheaded by Valpak in the UK and is a key development towards the group’s ultimate ambition of being the leading global provider of services to the circular economy.
Commenting on the deal, Reconomy’s CEO, Paul Cox, said, “The purchase of Noventiz is the start of an exciting new chapter for Reconomy as we establish ourselves in the European and International marketplace. Our vision is to add value to customers across the breadth of environmental services on a global scale and Noventiz will provide an opportunity to build on the success we’ve experienced with packaging compliance, using their expertise and knowledge of the German market. As we all know, this has been a challenging year, but Reconomy has remained committed to our growth ambitions and I’m delighted to be concluding 2020 with this very positive development. We’re looking forward to welcoming our new colleagues from Noventiz into the Reconomy family.”
