Robert Brocklesby

When Robert took charge of the Brocklesby business some 10 years ago, its turnover was £2m. Now the business has diversified into Adams & Green (animal feed ingredients) and has a JV with Greenergy Fuels and its combined sales are approaching £45m.They take waste oil from food manufacturers and process it into a bio diesel feedstock that ultimately gets blended into diesel for motor vehicles. Adams & Green takes crude oils such as rape, soy and palm and blends them into products that are used in animal feed manufacture; this business has grown from sales of £4m three years ago to sales of £25m this year. In addition they have a 50/50 joint venture which refines poorer quality oils into bio diesel.
