Andusia Expand Into New Office Premises

We are moving! It has been a busy few months behind the scenes, and Andusia are now happy to announce that due to business growth, we have moved to new offices.

Andusia launched in 2012, and the company quickly established themselves as the UK’s largest independent exporter of RDF waste across Europe. Over this time, the company operated out of offices located in Hertford town centre (Hertfordshire).

Since launch, Andusia have extended their expertise and expanded into other areas of the waste industry – both in Europe and closer to home here in the UK. Due to such expansion, the business had outgrown the old premises and looking to the future, the decision was made to remain in Hertford but move to larger facilities. In fact, the newly refurbished offices are almost 3 times the size of the old!

Andusia Confirm Waste Volumes Stable

With so-called ‘Freedom Day’ previously planned for 21st June having been extended, Andusia take the opportunity to look once more at the effects of coronavirus on UK waste volumes.

In March, the Environment Agency reported that RDF exports fell by 37% in 2020 versus the previous year. A fall undoubtedly influenced by the coronavirus pandemic and the UK’s lockdown. Supporting this, according to data reported by both Veolia and Suez UK, the amount of waste generated in commercial and industrial workplaces drastically reduced by 50%. In contrast, with families at home, municipal waste increased by 20%.

At the time, Andusia anticipated that the impact of Covid-19 on waste volumes ‘would quickly dissipate’, and we, as a company, have already seen this come to fruition. Andusia can confidently report that, although waste volumes are not back to pre-covid levels, they have reached a stable level for which we do not see going on the decline again.

At Andusia, logistics, looked after by our Operations team, is at the heart of our business and it is what we do best. Since 1st January 2021, there has been a requirement for additional Customs documents, leading to an increase in time-consuming administrative workload, further processes to manage and, if not managed properly, confusion.

Andusia Commit to UK Waste Suppliers

Just as new guidance has been issued for all UK Government buildings in England, Wales and Scotland to fly the Union Jack flag every day, to unite the nation and as a symbol of pride – Andusia would also like to take the opportunity to affirm their commitment to the UK and more specifically UK waste suppliers.

Over the past year, the waste industry has seen other waste exporters adopt alternative routes to market; promoting their supply of Polish, German and Italian waste to Energy from Waste (EfW) facilities across Northern Europe.
