Pinden, located between Gravesend and Dartford in Kent, is a UK leader in waste management, recycling and asbestos disposal. The company also has a thriving skip hire business and is part of the Watch It Come Down Group. Focus is not only on global environmental concerns but on fulfilling obligations to the local environment as well.
The waste is turned into recycled aggregates, soils and wood fibre for use in construction and manufacturing in particular. Pinden supplies businesses of all sizes, from local builders to major civil engineering concerns. Additionally, it operates a fully-licensed landfill site for the disposal of asbestos.
Getting Stuff Done
Creaseys has worked with Pinden since before the current owners bought it in 2004. The practice was instrumental in putting that deal together. Now, director Matt Neill leads a team helping with the Watch It Come Down Group’s statutory accounts and providing advice on corporation tax planning, plus other accountancy and taxation issues.
Matt Neill said: “Pinden is a fascinating business made up of a number of different segments that fit together, with recycling and the environment at the hub. It is very satisfying to see how it has grown and developed since we became involved.”
“Creaseys provides excellent advice,” said Pinden’s group accountant Peter Osmond. “They are really approachable and it’s easy to pick up the phone and call Matt, or somebody from his team, if I’ve got any sort of issue. If we used one of the big London firms, I’m sure we’d meet a partner initially and then be farmed out to more junior staff members,” he explained. “With Creaseys, Matt continues to work closely with us.”
Peter added: “We pride ourselves on being a very forward-thinking company and are always looking at new ways to recycle. I enjoy working with Creaseys, as they are forward-looking as well and don’t stand still. I’m proud to have their name on our accounts.”
