Metro Compactor Service has expanded its operations in Ontario with the acquisition of Miller Waste Solutions Group. The company, formerly WSG, is Miller Waste Systems' division that focuses on the service and manufacturing of waste and recycling equipment.
The new acquisition will allow Metro Compactor Service to field a larger fleet of service vehicles and additional service technicians.
"With an increased fleet and more techs in the field, we will now be able to service our customers better, faster, and more efficiently," said Andrew Strudwicke, president of Metro Compactor Service. "As our footprint in Ontario continues to expand, there will be increased regional support for customers and less wasted time travelling back and forth between sites."
Through this acquisition, Metro has also increased its presence in the construction of multi-residential buildings. Metro plans to install and retrofit new chutes, sorters, and compactors, along with servicing existing equipment in these buildings.
"Metro Compactor and Miller Waste Systems have a strong business relationship, and this transaction will allow us to further exploit the synergies between our two companies," said Denis Goulet, vice chair of Miller Waste Systems.
Metro will continue to provide its range of equipment services (chutes, waste equipment, maintenance, and IoT monitoring) to the commercial, high-rise, and multi-residential markets.
"One of the key challenges for multi-residential facilities is that owners and managers are constantly facing energy savings/ESG mandates as well as rising costs throughout the entire waste stream," said Danny Mauti, president and CEO of the Metro Group of Companies. "With this acquisition, Metro Compactor Service can better serve these facilities' needs and continue moving toward our ultimate goal of accountability for the environmental impact and costs associated with waste and recycling equipment. We are not haulers we are waste equipment experts."
