An Aberdeen-headquartered metal reprocessing and decommissioning company has been shortlisted for a European Business Award for the Environment
The John Lawrie Group is one of 10 other Scots businesses which have been selected to represent the country and the UK at the event later this year.
Along with its headquarters in Aberdeen, John Lawrie Group has operations in Montrose, Evanton near Inverness, Shetland and the United States. The company specialises in metal recycling and reprocessing, the supply of new and used steel tubulars, and oilfield and industrial decommissioning services.
Over the past two decades the firm – which was established in the 1930s – has progressively developed its decommissioning expertise. It is the firm’s commitment to identifying alternative uses for redundant oil and gas materials that has led to it receiving the EBAE nomination.
Ray Grant, John Lawrie Group environmental director, explained: “Two decades of work has gone into building our expertise in the decommissioning sector and finding alternative uses for redundant materials, in turn creating a greener economy.
“Re-using redundant drill pipes as piling in the construction sector is just one example of how this can be achieved.
“Operating sustainably is a commitment we have across our whole business. Our metals division for example processes thousands of tonnes of metal each month that is remanufactured into new steel products, while our tubulars division can supply a range of used tubing, casing, drill pipe and associated products for a variety of uses.”
Eastablished in the 1930s, John Lawrie Group was acquired by its management last year in partnership with Rubicon Partners and investment firm Grovepoint.
