One of South Wales’ largest recycling companies has recently expanded and opened a new Cardiff site following impressive business growth in recent months.

Bayliss Recovery, which has two existing sites in Bridgend and Ogmore, has recorded substantial increase in new clientele. This boost in business has led to the company investing in a third site at Cardiff’s Tremorfa Industrial Estate, following advice from local accountancy firm Kilsby & Williams.

Having reached a plateau, the Bayliss Recovery team was keen to progress the company further, to avoid stagnation and enlisted the help of Kilsby & Williams after recommendations from their bank six months ago.

The family-run business has seen a steady growth since launching 20 years ago and has turned into one of the biggest scrap metal companies in South Wales with three sites in Bridgend, Ogmore, and now Cardiff. The company offers a range of services including vehicle collection and scrap purchase.

David Bayliss, for Bayliss Recovery, said: “We outgrew our previous accountant and were introduced to Kilsby & Williams at a NatWest networking event. We immediately warmed to them, and during our discussion they gave us a host of information and options for our business. We didn’t hesitate to use them.

“Kilsby and Williams has been great at giving tax and commercial advice and we have developed a long-term business plan to help expand our business further. In the six months that we have been using them we have already seen improvements and are very impressed.

“Our ultimate goal for Bayliss Recovery is to grow and expand further, opening more sites across Wales.”

Stephen Williams, Senior Partner and Co-founder of Kilsby and Williams, said: “We are delighted to be able to work closely with David and help expand Bayliss Recovery. It is very encouraging that they have been able to grow into one of the largest metal recycling companies and it will be exciting to see how the company expands further.”
