ABERDEEN-headquartered John Lawrie Group has invested nearly £2 million in the American arm of the business.

John Lawrie Tubulars (USA), based in Houston, supplies steel tubulars for piling to the American construction industry.

Work is underway to develop on-site facilities including over £1.1 million ($1.5m USD) of investment in capital equipment that will be fully operational by the end of September. The additional equipment has created 10 new jobs and allowed the company to continue hiring throughout the economic downturn.

An additional £750,000 ($1m USD) of capital investment in equipment is planned between October and December of 2020,

In May, the company opened Phase 1 of a new 8-acre yard in Camden, New Jersey to complement its existing five sites across Texas, Colorado, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Oklahoma.

In August, groundwork commenced on Phase 2 of the Northeast expansion, extending the Camden site by another five acres and the phase 3 development of the warehouse should be completed in Q4 of 2020.

Vic Sinclair, chief executive officer, said: “This recent investment in a new yard and upgrading our existing facilities means that we are more strategically placed to supply piling products across America.

“We are looking forward to continuing to expand our offering throughout the rest of 2020 and beyond.”
