The investment – which includes a new crane, industrial furnace and blasting cabinet - will allow us to build on existing success diversifying into different sectors, as well as supporting the region’s net zero ambitions.

Our managing director Ronnie Watt said: “Our business is to protect the things that drive our clients’ businesses in demanding environments.

“The circular economy plays a key part in our future direction, and our ability to treat equipment so it can be reused and recycled means we can help other businesses to achieve their own environmental ambitions.

“As Nexus diversifies beyond traditional oil and gas, this investment lets us offer more energy-efficient surface treatments that maximise equipment performance, as well as a greater range of refurbishment and reuse options for existing kit.
