Recycling firm SWM will celebrate

60 Years serving North

Devon on 14 July 2019. Started

in 1959 by Ray and Vashtie

Penford, or Mr and Mrs P as

they were commonly known,

R Penfold and Son went on to

become South Molton Metals.

In 2002, SWM was incorporated

to accommodate

the growing demand for

integrated waste management

systems, which have enabled

more waste streams to be

processed and transformed

into useful resources. In 2011,

everything was brought under

the SWM and Waste Recycling

banner to reflect the growing

regional presence.

Today, the company is

jointly owned by Ray and

Vashtie’s son Raymond and

nephew Shawn Akers, who are

proud of the local employment

the business offers and its wide

range of services.

routes by Ryanair to Alicante,

Malaga, Malta and Naples.

Matt Roach, managing

director of Exeter Airport, said:

“We are delighted to be in the

top tier of UK airports and to

have achieved the gold standard

for the quality of service

that we provide to disabled and

less mobile passengers.

“It is a testament to the hard

work and dedication of our

staff and we are committed

to providing the best possible

experience for anyone in the

community who requires

assistance when travelling.”


Waste firm celebrates

60 years of service

During its 60 years, the

company has faced many

challenges. More recently these

have included environmental

demands and sustainable waste

solutions. SWM has continued

to invest in order to keep

pace with and lead the way in

bringing about new initiatives

that have helped many North

Devon businesses meet stringent

compliance criteria.

From humble beginnings

rooted in scrap metal recycling,

SWM has become a

leading provider of integrated

waste management services in

the South West, with a growing

blue chip client list and stateof-the-art

recycling facilities.

The company planned

to mark the occasion with a

companywide fun day and

BBQ at its Roundswell headquarters

in July.
