Aberdeen Blast Services has invested £1m in a new state of the art, purpose built blast bay; allowing them to increase their capacity, bring all safety aspects of their operation up to date, expand their workforce and be more environmentally friendly by vastly reducing their energy usage.
Following the expansion the company are now able to simultaneously run up to 3 blasting jobs (one non-ferrous and two ferrous). With the 3 blast rooms now in full use Aberdeen Blast Services clients will benefit from modern, high specification blasting facilities unlike any others in Scotland. The blast hall which measures 7.5m wide x 7m high x 20m long can accommodate much larger assets which ensures that jobs of all sizes can be fulfilled.
Director Steven Clark believes that their investment in the business will benefit both staff and customers: “Our new blast bay will allow us to accommodate larger jobs and give us the flexibility to work on multiple projects simultaneously. Investing in new technology and equipment has improved safety and working conditions for our staff and allowed us to offer the very latests services to our customers.”
Aberdeen Blast Services has been based in the heart of Europe’s oil capital, Aberdeen Since 1985, where it was established by current Director Joseph Clark. The business has grown from its humble beginnings of a small shed on Stell Road Aberdeen to the specialised premises in East Tullos today which is managed by Joseph’s son Steven.
