John Lawrie re-opens Shetland recycling facility to support decom sector

Metal reprocessing, tubular supply and decommissioning company, John Lawrie Group, on Monday re-opened its new Shetland recycling facility for business. 

This comes after the Aberdeen-based group expanded its activities and service offering by acquiring the assets and purchasing the site previously occupied by 60 North at Rova Head in Lerwick last December.

John Lawrie Group has now taken over the daily running of the facility in a move which will provide further geographic coverage and enhance its ability to serve customers in that region, the company said on Monday.

All existing employees were transferred over to the group which has obtained both a waste management license from the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and a metal dealers’ license from Shetland Islands Council allowing it to operate in the islands.

According to the company, the new facility is strategically placed to support the oil and gas decommissioning sector in the area, as well as local metal recycling requirements. The group plans to increase local employment, invest in new technology and develop the site into a full-service scrap metal processing and decommissioning facility.

The acquisition is John Lawrie Group’s first major purchase since being recently acquired by its management in partnership with Rubicon Partners, an industrial investor, and principal investment firm Grovepoint.
