A NORTH Cumbrian construction support service has appointed a new group managing director to further its expansion. 

Penrith based APK has recently appointed Elliott Harrison-Holt to the role. 

With a turnover of £15 million, the Group operates throughout the North West with sites in Cumbria, Lancashire and North Wales under the APK, GTR Aggregates and Recycling, Think Recycling and Able Skips brands.

The business has developed a reputation for providing end-to-end services in the construction sector that range from demolition, plant hire, transport, aggregates, and recycling.

Mr Harrison-Holt said: "APK has rapidly grown to be one of the leading construction support services companies in the North West with ambitious plans to continue growth organically and through acquisition.

"I am privileged to join a family owned business that has already demonstrated it can grow at scale.

"Sustainability is a driving force for many businesses, particularly in the construction sector, and APK is well-positioned to help companies achieve objectives in minimising their impact on the environment.

"We’re now looking to grow the team and build a stronger business to help achieve our ambitious but realistic growth plans."

More recently, the business has grown via acquisitions of recycling and waste management operations in Bagillt, Leyland and Lancaster, enabling the Group to expand its offering in sectors dependent on efficient waste management operators.

Elliot joins APK from Recycling Lives, where he was managing director of its waste management division. He is also a member of Business in the Community’s North West Leadership Board.

The APK Group operates a number of businesses dedicated in waste management and recycling to a ‘one stop shop’ solution for its clients.

Each division of APK is managed by key personnel who are each industry experts in their own field. 

The Group also provides demolition and remediation services, alongside plant hire and transport vehicles.
