John Pointon started the business in the transportation of butchers waste with one vehicle in 1958. The core business remained the collection and transportation of Animal By-Products until 1977, when the Pointon family expanded into processing, with the acquisition of a small rendering plant in Staffordshire.
The Cheddleton site has been occupied by a rendering facility for over 80 years as a result of the local Authorities re-locating the facility from Leek town centre.
From 1977 up to the present day, John Pointon and Sons has experienced organic and sustainable growth in order to become the largest single site rendering and recycling Company in the UK, uniquely operating both Category 1 and Category 3 processing facilities from the same site.
In recent years, the Directors, have evolved their current facilities in order to offer cost effective food waste disposal solutions which compliment our core business.
Furthermore our Transport Fleet offers tailored solutions to industry, from a small container to bio secure 55 cu yd trailers, we have the answer to any disposal dilemma.
Our waste disposal solutions offer food companies a sensible and sustainable answer to landfill and thus assist in reducing their own carbon footprint at the same time.
