W. A. van Peperzeel – the Dutch firm specialising in collecting, sorting and processing household/car batteries and non-ferrous metals – has laid the foundation stone for its new plant at Lelystad in the Netherlands. The formal ceremony was performed by company founder Wim van Peperzeel, father of current Managing Director Johan en Marco van Peperzeel.
Since its formation in 1978, the family-owned company has enjoyed continuous growth, notably after it sealed a contract with Dutch battery association Stibat in 1996 which covered the sorting of all household batteries collected in the Netherlands. In October 2003, W. A. van Peperzeel acquired the car battery division of waste management company Sita – a deal which led directly to the proposal to construct a larger plant.
