Demolition firm blows into town

A specialist demolition firm has blown into town to expand its business.

KDC, which also has offices in Manchester and Reading, has just announced the opening if its new Scottish headquarters in Grangemouth’s Earls Gate Business Park and the recruitment of four new experts in land remediation and project management roles to its expanding team.

The move sees the business, which serves clients across a range of sectors including nuclear, energy, pharmaceutical and industrial markets, triple its office space to cater for its growth.

Christopher Sandground is operations director of K-Land Solutions, the specialist remediation arm of KDC which will be based at the Grangemouth office.

He said: “Our offices are strategically placed across the UK and this move demonstrates our growing presence in the area as a leading provider of decommissioning, demolition and remediation services.

“It signals our ongoing commitment to serving our Scottish based customers.

“We have built some long term relationships here in Scotland and believe expanding our base here will cement these further and ~bring new opportunities our way.”

The expansion follows the recent award of a £1 million oil storage tank and pipeline demolition contract with Scottish and Southern Energy.
