Miller Argent (South Wales) Ltd
Miller Argent (South Wales) Ltd is a joint venture between The Miller Group Limited and Argent Group PLC. The company was originally created to carry out the Ffos-y-Fran Land Reclamation Scheme in Merthyr Tydfil and will shortly be submitting a planning application for the Nant Llesg Surface Mine with Remediation in Caerphilly.
Work at the Ffos-y-fran site commenced in 2007 and will result in the reclamation of 367 hectares of derelict land by the removal of existing tips, shafts, adits & landfills, making safe the environment for generations to come.
The Ffos-y-Fran site currently employs around 200 people; among these are 7 trainees and apprentices; in addition to this we engage with local universities and support student placements and work experience schemes. 85% of our workforce live within 10 miles of site.
The company also provides a number of local community facilities including two community minibuses and an education and training centre; in 2012 over 260 individuals visited the operations as we continue to promote our open access approach to engage with local communities. A multi-million pound Community Benefit Fund which is administered by Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council has supported a range of significant local projects.
Health and Safety and Environmental Management are at the heart of our operations and we are committed to ensuring best practise and exceptional standards are met throughout our premises.
We are both ISO 9001 (Quality Standard) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management Standard) accredited and have an impeccable legislative record.
