The move will herald the creation of up to five new jobs in both Stoke-on-Trent and Shropshire, and the opening of Chaffinch Document’s new 6,000 sq ft processing facility on Fenton Industrial Estate.

The business, which is part of the Chaffinch Group of companies, will be looking to expand its existing customer base across Staffordshire, Shropshire, Cheshire and the West Midlands.

Chaffinch Group MD, Alastair Machin commented: "This is a great acquisition for us.  We have acquired and protected a long-standing business of 27 years which complements our existing services and will create new jobs immediately.

 “We are fully committed to all of WN Shredding's existing customers, and intend to build on their reputation for excellent service across the region, whilst looking to increase our customer base across Shropshire, the West Midlands region and beyond.

"By offering increasingly specialised compliance and data protection services it add another dimension to our business. Our processes allow us to protect the information of our clients and their customers, whilst providing environmentally-responsible solutions to an ever-growing challenge."

The acquisition will also further establish Chaffinch Document's green credentials as shredding is proven to save resources by reducing landfill and cutting the usage of electricity, oil and water.

Used paper from offices will be shredded and formed in to half-tonne bales which are collected and taken to paper mills which in turn process it into toilet paper and kitchen roll.  

Chaffinch Group, which celebrated its fifth birthday earlier in 2016, has seen revenues grow by 50% in the past financial year and employee numbers grow from three to seven.
