As the business grew it became apparent that there was a need for a new Partner in the firm and in the mid 1970’s Mr J.M. Parry’s grandson, John’s son, Stephen Evans joined. Further growth in the business saw yet another move soon after, and the business moved to its current base at Severn Farm Industrial Estate.
Sadly Mr J.M. Parry has since passed away, but taking the firm from strength to strength, John and Stephen Evans have proved themselves to be very capable and competent Managers, forging partnerships with companies and almost trebling the workforce.
Leading up towards the millennium, the partners added Confidential Waste Destruction to the business. This involved a new building, new machinery and new vehicles. A franchise was acquired from REISSWOLF* and this is now a thriving venture.
A quick look at the business now sees approximately 3000 tonnes of paper turned around a week and exports to exotic places throughout the world such as China, India and Indonesia.
All this under the watchful eyes of the Directors, Mr. John Evans and Mrs Rosemary Evans, and Stephen Evans, making this a truly Family business.
Grades of materials recycled today range from Plastic, Cardboard, through Newspaper and Pamphlets to Best White grade 1. All graded, baled and stored on site, ready for transportation to Paper mills throughout Europe and the World.

Also on the environmental theme, the last 5 years the company has seen its fuel policy change, ensuring all of the company vehicles are fuelled by diesel.
More so, a part of the business that does not get publicised is the environmental work Parry & Evans carries out on a purely voluntary basis. On the South boundary at Severn Farm Industrial Estate Depot a Nature Reserve with a large lake to which surface water drains. Parry & Evans recently built two interceptors to catch the water and then under guidance from the Environment Agency built a reed filter bed. This ensures the surface water is at its purest when it enters the lake for the fish, birds and many species of wildlife that can be found in the reserve.
