Keith is a well-known figure in the waste industry, and during his 21 years at Dennis Eagle has held responsibility for Purchasing and Supply Chain, Engineering and Project Management. He has also been Engineering Director for the last 12 years.

He paid tribute to his predecessor, saying: “Kevin held the reigns of Dennis Eagle while the waste management industry embarked on an unprecedented and exciting period of change. The industry is still undergoing that transition but thanks to his leadership and clear vision, the company has thrived and remains in a strong position to meet the challenges ahead.

“As always, our core values remain at the heart of our business. Our strategy remains the same and I’m looking forward to meeting more of our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders in the weeks and months ahead.”

Tim Conlon, Chief Executive Officer of Terberg Environmental of which Dennis Eagle is a part, said: “Keith brings a wealth of experience to the role, and we have full confidence in his ability to lead Dennis Eagle in this next chapter of the business. I am sure you will join me in wishing him every success in this new role.

“And I’d like to thank Kevin for his outstanding service, and we wish him the very best in his retirement.”

Dennis Eagle is headquartered in Warwick but has another major production facility in Blackpool. It manufactures more than 1,000 vehicles per year for UK local authorities and private sector contractors and it has a strong customer base in continental Europe, Scandinavia and Australia.

In 2020, the company became the first original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to launch a zero-emissions, all-electric refuse collection vehicle and now leads the way in the UK’s growing eRCV market. It also opened a new production facility in South Carolina, USA, manufacturing trucks designed specifically for the North American market.
