NWH Group Purchase Armstrong Waste Management

A Family Owned Company based in Dumfries ‘Armstrong Waste Management’ has recently been bought (January 31st 2020) by Midlothian based family business NWH Group.

Janet Armstrong told DGWGO Business News “We are delighted to announce the business and assets sale of Dumfries-based AWM (incorporating SWWM) to the Scottish-based waste recycler, NWH Group. AWM will retain the soils processing and landfill.
The Glasgow Road site will continue to provide skip hire, trade waste services and materials recycling from its undercover facility, serving the south west of Scotland, the central belt and the north of England.
There will be no change to the AWM and SWWM services or scheduled trade waste runs with all associated staff being retained. Both AWM and SWWM will be re-branded as NWH Group but through a managed process over a period of time. NWH Group aims to identify further growth opportunities for the Dumfries site, and will in turn create a number of new job opportunities in the area.
Originally formed in 1965, Armstrong’s growth has been driven by a family business passion for making things happen. NWH Group shares the same commitment to family values and a desire to deliver a positive difference to the world in which we live, and we look forward to a very positive future for AWM and SWWM within the NWH Group family.
Operationally, your day to day point of contact will remain the same, with the main telephone number staying as 01387 721 333, which should be used for all customer services queries.  While you should notice no operational changes please note that invoices for services provided from 1 February will be from NWH Waste Services and bank payment details will be changing.  The NWH Waste Services information sheet is enclosed for you to update your purchase ledger details.  The telephone number for finance queries will change to 03333 20 4000.”


The Armstrong family would like to extend thanks to all their loyal customers, staff and suppliers over the years of trading and would like to wish them all the very best in their new venture with The NWH Group.
