Leading international industrial cleaning contractor, Sureclean, welcomed employees, stakeholders and clients to officially open its new Oldmeldrum Facility, Bethelnie House, on Friday 21st November.
Sureclean Managing Director, John Barron, welcomed the guests to the impressive 4.9 acre facility located in the burgeoning engineering hub of Oldmeldrum. This multi-million construction was undertaken as part of the Company's growth and expansion plans and constructed simultaneously with their international headquarters, located in Alness.
John Barron and Aberdeenshire Lord Provost, Jill Webster, performed the official opening of the facility which was followed by a few speeches on the Company's history, a tour of the facility and live equipment demonstrations.
The Company's operational and employee requirements were considered during the design stages of the modern office, warehouse and yard development resulting in a large open-plan environment improving workflow and inter-departmental communication.
With effective use of training, meeting and wellbeing areas, this facility will act as their international equipment 'hub', replacing their former Aberdeenshire facility at Whitecairns and supporting their Oil and Gas clients globally.
In keeping with the Company's environmental credentials, the new facilities are designed to minimise Sureclean's carbon footprint and features a water recycling system, rainwater harvesting wash bay and solar source technology to enhance the efficiency of the building.
John Barron said: "We are delighted to be opening our new facility in Oldmeldrum which was necessitated due to the Company's increasing staff levels. Sureclean is in an exciting stage of growth and this development is of strategic importance to allow us to increase staff levels and further our international operations.
"We are pleased that Provost Webster could join us for this celebration and this construction underpins the development potential within Aberdeenshire. We have been welcomed to the area by the local community and we look forward to building more relationships within the area".
The modern facility includes: ergonomic training, classroom and meeting rooms; 3,500 sq ft of open plan offices; 6,500 sq ft of warehousing; 8.600 sq ft of internal storage space, and an extensive 2.5 acre concreted yard with specialist equipment demonstration area.
Specialising in high pressure and ultra high pressure water jetting and its associated applications, Sureclean employs a permanent workforce in excess of 130 personnel and provides essential support to industry globally.
