GG Compactors Limited was established in 1982 as a waste compactor manufacturer; however previous associated companies were in production some ten years previous.
It was about this time that the first ever portable compactor to be introduced in the UK was designed and built by the company, and was marketed with the now famous name of GARBAGE GORGER. The portable compactor was unique in as much that it was completely hydraulic, with no electrical components, apart from the starter.
This meant greater reliability, a point that was soon recognised by the off shore oil industry. With no electrical components this was of course a great safety feature and an added advantage that enabled the compactor to be sold to the oil companies for use on the rigs in great numbers. This gave the company a foothold in the UK waste disposal industry, and enabled GG Compactors the revenue to develop the Lennox House Group into one of the major waste Compactor Manufacturers in the UK.
Portable Compactors Ltd was originally formed by Graham Phillips and Len Gamblin in the early 1970’s. The first compactor ever manufactured in the UK was a top loading portable unit designed to mimic the operation of a refuse vehicle and the concept was keenly adopted within the waste industry with Hales Waste being the first waste contractor to introduce the concept to their customer base. This was quickly followed by other contractors, however the first units were purchased by Westminster City Council and the Saudi Royal Family which allowed the company to expand quickly into the offshore market and introduce the first Static Compactors thereafter, by 1980 Len Gamblin was running the Company and the Lennox House Group was formed.
