Meet the IWA team.
Invasive Weeds Agency comprises
a team of experienced and qualified
individuals with a common goal.
Invasive Weeds Agency Limited (IWA) specialises in invasive weed management and ecology. Founded in 2007, by father and son, Nigel and Graham Rudd, IWA has successfully eradicated Japanese knotweed, Giant hogweed, and Himalayan balsam on many sites across the UK including the new Forth Crossing project, London’s Crossrail Project and several large supermarket developments. IWA’s domestic projects have helped clients to sell their properties or secure finances by removing the threat of invasive weeds. As one of the UK’s longest practising ecologists, Nigel Rudd’s experience has led IWA to great success and driven the company to pursue projects with real ecological benefits such as the Japanese knotweed and Rhododendron control for the Argyll Fisheries Trust in order to increase biodiversity and encourage brown trout to spawn in streams previously blocked by weeds.
Driven by our desire to offer our clients the best service possible, IWA conforms to the highest standards set by BASIS (the independent authority for the pesticide industry), we are qualified members of the BASIS Advanced Contractors Certification Scheme (BACCS) and we meet the Amenity Assured standard. Our BASIS qualified advisor and trainer, Graham Rudd, ensures IWA maintain these high standards while offering the opportunity to educate individuals and companies on invasive weed management as a commitment to Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
We are members of and on the steering committee for the Invasive Non-Native Specialists Association (INNSA). INNSA is the industry body for companies controlling and eradicating invasive non-native species in the UK. INNSA aims to improve the standards within the industry and offer peace of mind to clients.
We are proud to be members of the Which? Trusted Trader Scheme and we have achieved ISO 9001 & ISO14001 accreditation which demonstrates that our customers will get the best possible service.
