Leading specialist remediation contractor Englobe UK, welcomed Reading West MP, Alok Sharma, to its headquarters in Theale earlier this month.
Alok met with members of Englobe’s staff at their office in his constituency and was introduced to the business as part of the company’s 30th birthday celebrations.
Englobe has been headquartered in Theale for over 20 years, and across the UK employs 80 people working on its specialist remediation contracting and enabling projects and five soil treatment facilities.
During the visit, Alok, who is the incumbent COP26 President, learnt that since 2005 Englobe has treated and re-used over 1.5 million tonnes of contaminated soil, diverting this from landfill. The business has also delivered over 1500 projects including Brownfield site reclamations and enabling works, bringing derelict sites back into beneficial re-use for redevelopment.
Alok Sharma MP said:
“It was great to visit Englobe and speak to the senior managers and staff based in Theale. I was delighted to learn about all the environmental and recycling services provided by the company, as well as their social value programmes for employees. I wish all the local employees in my constituency all the best for the future.”
Julia Roberts, Managing Director for Englobe UK added:
“It was wonderful to be able to show Alok Sharma the ground-breaking and innovative work we are doing here at Englobe. This opportunity allowed us to highlight just some of the significant projects we are working on throughout the UK and our future plans for expansion. Meeting Alok was the icing on the cake for the 30th birthday celebrations.”
