Celebrations as Axion turns fifteen!

  • 30 Oct 2017

A series of celebratory events amongst its workforce have taken place at Axion, as the circular economy specialists celebrated its 15th anniversary in October this year. 

Across its three Manchester sites, founding directors Keith Freegard and Roger Morton spoke about the company’s progress and presented awards to a number of long-serving employees.

Commemorative mugs and cupcakes were also a part of the celebrations across its 92-strong cohort.

Since its formation in 2002, Axion has become a highly-respected resource recovery consulting and plastics recycling business, delivering major projects in high-interest areas of the Circular Economy.

There has been plenty of change at the company as well this year, as a summer rebrand featured the launch of a new website, which can be found in the link in the first paragraph.

As part of this, Axion kickstarted a new tagline; ‘working towards a world where nothing goes to waste.’

Keith Freegard spoke with optimism: “Increasingly, we are seeing a Circular Economy influence on product design and material supply chains as designers and manufacturers recognise the importance of protecting and making better use of our finite resources.

“Changing attitudes towards waste is having a positive impact both on what we do and can deliver for our clients.”

Head of Consulting Services, Jane Gardner commented: “Judging by the wide range of projects we are currently working on and the number of enquiries we are now receiving, reflecting an increasing desire from companies to develop their activities along Circular Economy principles.

“We have the expertise in both the collection and reprocessing of a wide variety of materials to help them achieve their goals.”

Head of Finance and HR Judith Clayman spoke of Axion’s commitment to staff development: “We have a well-motivated team here and our emphasis is very much about our talented people. We want to support staff development and make Axion an even more fun place to work.”
