Vic Sinclair, CEO, commented: “This award means everything to us. Our aim is always to keep our business moving forward and to make a real difference, so to receive this acknowledgment is a deeply proud moment. Innovation is key to our growth strategy and we’re looking forward to continuing to evolve our business to meet market and environmental demands.”
Iain Laing, Managing Director, says: “We are delighted to have won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise. We have been strategically focused on evolving our business offering to meet the demands of not only the industry we serve, but the global environment within which we work.
“Our aim is to minimise waste, pollution and the consumption of finite resources in order to improve sustainability, reduce environmental impacts and help cut greenhouse gas emissions — so to be recognised for our efforts is very satisfying. We share our greener credentials with our suppliers and clients, to show the carbon emissions saved thanks to using our products and services, and the response has been incredibly positive.”
John Lawrie Tubulars repurposes redundant steel tubulars from the North Sea oil and gas industry as a high-quality alternative to new manufactured prime steel products in the construction piling industry. Extending the life of materials through reuse, repurpose and recycling is at the core of the John Lawrie Tubulars business with the aim of minimising waste, pollution, water and the consumption of finite resources, improving sustainability, reducing environmental impacts and cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
The company has recently expanded its service in the UK as well as in the USA by investing a seven-figure sum in its operations in Montrose, Scotland and Houston, Texas. Following the purchase of a number of new assets, the company is now perfectly positioned to offer products for construction applications to new and existing clients in the construction, rail and geo-drilling (geothermal and water wells) industries in order to maximise the opportunity for repurposing products that would otherwise go to waste.
Now in its 56th year, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the country, with winning businesses able to use the esteemed Queen’s Awards Emblem for the next five years.
