We recently caught up with Jane Tobin, Admin for Ancove, who gives us an insight into Ancove’s progress since joining the Bidvest Noonan family.
How has the Ancove business changed since it became part of Bidvest Noonan?
Although we still have the same name above the door and we are continuing to offer the same core services to all our clients, there has been a real positive change to Ancove since becoming part of Bidvest Noonan. There has been a new injection of energy, and our ambitions have been backed. Both businesses share a similar aim, to help our clients by providing a great service.
The level of support provided by management has been fantastic. We now have local management teams to help guide us and there is a real focus on career development for employees.
I have no doubt we will see success as part of the Bidvest Noonan family. We can help each other. Ancove can help Bidvest Noonan grow their service offering by offering waste handling solutions for its clients’ sites complementing its current overall service package.
How does Ancove help Bidvest Noonan clients with their environmental performance?
As a leading provider of Waste Handling Solutions in Ireland, we help our clients reduce their carbon footprint. We identify their different waste streams on-site and offer solutions to manage their waste volumes to ensure all possible products are getting recycled correctly. By enabling our clients to recycle more of their waste, we help them create an additional source of revenue.
A reduction in the volumes of waste comes with it a reduction in transportation costs. This not only saves money for our clients but minimises the damage to our environment with a reduced number of trips for waste removal.
How have you found engaging with your new colleagues?
We joined Bidvest Noonan’s Industrial Team last year and it has been fantastic. Director of Operations, Ken Kehoe, and the whole team have given us great support. We have a weekly call with them, and there is a real togetherness within the group.
The integration into Bidvest Noonan has been made easier with the help of many of the central support teams too. The EHS, HR, and Shared Services teams have made us feel very welcome and have been on hand to answer any questions we’ve had.
I speak for the rest of the Ancove team in saying we really feel like we have been made part of a bigger team with great ambitions and I am looking forward to getting to know even more colleagues in the months and years ahead.
What are you now looking forward to the most as part of the Bidvest Noonan family?
The whole team and I are excited about the future of Ancove under Bidvest Noonan. With the backing of such a strong brand, we are excited to add value for our clients, and the prospect of our business growing to new heights.
Personally, with the support of Bidvest Noonan, I look forward to opportunities that will allow me to progress my career within the business. I have already begun developing my skills and look forward to growing my knowledge and abilities even further in the years ahead.
