A leading light in the decommissioning waste sector has invested £750,000 in significant expansion of its presence in Aberdeen.
Phoenix Decom is based in the city and has strategically located licensed operational quayside outlets at the ports in Aberdeen, Peterhead, and Lerwick. Now, the growing company has taken on 3400m² fully licensed premises at Wellheads Crescent in Dyce where £600,000 of the investment figure lies in additional equipment and infrastructure such as cleaning capabilities which will uplevel the service offering as the company embraces a steep upward growth trajectory.
Set up during the pandemic by respected industry leader Craig Smith, Phoenix Decom comprises a knowledgeable team of 15 trusted industry professionals who have collective experience of more than 200 years. That number is set to rise in the coming months as contracts won in the first half of the year put the company on track to exceed the previously reported £3 million of work won during its first year in business.
Despite its youth, the ambitious company has flourished to become the leading one-stop shop for independent, modern, integrated solutions for the management and disposal of decommissioning waste in the subsea sector. The business prides itself on offering a fresh contemporary approach, and achieves dynamic, tangible and environmentally compliant outcomes for all clients and on all projects.
Commenting on Phoenix Decom’s expansion in Aberdeen, Craig Smith said: “In order to capitalise on the opportunities in our sector, it is vital that we are correctly positioned. The addition of the Dyce facility will place us near to our growing customer base whilst acting as both a central base and a springboard towards future growth.”
