Senior appointments and relocation at Clarke’s Environmental as rapid growth continues


Asbestos removal specialist Clarke’s Environmental continues to expand with two senior appointments and relocation to a new Yorkshire base at Omega Business Village, Northallerton.


Operations director Michael Carmody will head operations in both Scotland and Yorkshire at Clarke’s Environmental, whose turnover has grown at an unprecedented rate from £600,000 two years ago to a predicted £3.5million this financial year. Kevin Godfrey joins the company as health and safety manager.


Employee numbers have quadrupled at Clarke’s Environmental in the last two years - from 10 to 40 - resulting in the need to relocate from the office it shares with sister company HCS Mechanical Services.


Michael Carmody has more than 10 years’ experience at managerial level within the the construction sector. Kevin Godfrey has 25 years’ experience of health and safety management within both engineering and public sectors.


Richard Clarke, MD of Clarke’s Environmental, said: “Michael has an enviable reputation within the asbestos removal sector, while Kevin has an excellent track record in health and safety within our sector. Their appointments will help to strengthen our expertise, and ensure that we continue to focus on delivering quality service and outstanding customer care.”


Michael commented: “I am pleased to be joining Clarke’s Environmental at a pivotal time for the business and to be part of a team delivering the expansion of its offering across Scotland and the North of England.”

The new appointment and office relocation follow rapid expansion at Clarke’s Environmental, part of the Harry Clarke Holdings (HCH) group of companies. The business, which was launched in 2006 following concerns regarding falling standards within the asbestos removal industry, opened two new offices in Scotland in the last year. It also has a base in Hull, and its commercial customers span blue chips, local authorities, demolition companies, the MOD, police forces, and prisons.
