A HARTLEPOOL man has returned to work in his home town after taking up a new role.
After 25 years with PD Ports Group, latterly as PD Logistics North general manager, Frank Antropik has returned to his home town to take on the role of managing director of Niramax Group.
The post includes responsibility for the day to day management of the transport and processing operations at the company, which recently commissioned a state-of-the art refuse derived fuel plant that represents a £5m capital investment in Hartlepool.
Niramax facilities also feature one of the UK’s most advanced tyre recycling plants, developed around industry-leading Columbus-McKinnon shredding equipment.
The company has significantly expanded its operations in the North of the region, investing £1.6m in the development of a custom-built waste transfer station on a brownfield site at Pattinson Industrial Estate, Washington and last year it also acquired Blaydon Landfill Site from Tarmac.
Niramax own and operates its own fleet of modern waste collection vehicles and with the catchment area for its operations extending outside the North East, the company also operates a large articulated fleet recently enhanced by the addition of a fleet of ‘Legras’ walking floor trailers.
Mr Antropik said: “Niramax has been outstandingly successful in tailoring waste management solutions for individual companies in a diverse and expanding client base.
“Niramax is a major Hartlepool employer and I am looking forward to the challenge of contributing my knowledge and experience to a very dynamic and progressive company.”
