A world-class name in specialist waste management services, specialist industrial services and process decontamination has announced six-figure investment in its equipment fleet and the creation of up to 25 new jobs across Scotland.

Denholm Environmental Limited was recently created to provide world-class liquid waste management, specialist industrial cleaning and process decontamination services. Now, the company is gearing up for growth and has announced that it is ploughing GBP 700,000 into its fleet, including the addition of three new vacuum tankers and the imminent start of a move to investing in electric commercial vehicles from 2022 as part of the company’s sustainable and environmental transport strategy.

Up to 25 additional jobs are to be created at Denholm Environmental’s premises in Invergordon, Grangemouth and Inverurie where the existing yard facility at Souterford Avenue, Inverurie has recently been upgraded to provide more space. Work also included the installation of systems to improve water recovery, recycling and rainwater capture within the water jetting facility to assist the company in meeting their sustainability goals. This follows the recent completion of a new, 10-year lease agreement which underlines the company’s long-standing commitment to its Aberdeenshire headquarters.
