ACM Environmental PLC

Company Overview

ACM Environmental Plc is established as one of the UK’s leading waste management and environmental consultancies. It provides complete, single-vendor, waste management and recycling solutions for medium to large commercial waste producers in the UK. ACM is continually evolving to work with clients on select environmental and conservation projects that may also include solar energy and LED lighting solutions.

We target medium/large organisations that produce high volumes of waste and recyclables. Our unique Greener Path programme is a single-source solution that addresses all of their operational, environmental and CSER requirements and offers guaranteed monthly cost savings.

Franchise Overview

ACM has a client base of over 700 large commercial waste producers spanning a wide range of sectors.

Our clients typically engage in five-year contracts with us, presenting secure, long-term revenues for our franchisees. Not only that, but our client contract retention rate is currently 93% which leads the waste/recycling industry and shows that clients typically remain with ACM long after the initial contract period.

Both these facts help maximise the value of your franchise business and provide a potentially valuable exit opportunity further down the line.
