Company director Ian Cordingley is already from the North East, and believes that the region is a natural choice for the firms new operations as it is embedded into the UK and international energy and chemical sectors.

He commented: “In addition the region has excellent supply chain links with Aberdeen, which is also a key location for our clients.

“We have applied our corrosion management solutions to assets operated by companies including Shell, Centrica, Conoco, BP, Maersk and Total, which has enabled SCM to establish an enviable reputation across industry.

“With our new operation we aim to build upon our previous success to further integrate ourselves into Oil & Gas and Chemical industry supply chains out of North East England.”

SCM is an expert provider of corrosion management and control, corrosion prevention techniques including coatings selection, insulation and passive fire protection and has been serving clients in the North Sea, Europe, Far and Middle East, Africa and the Americas for more than 30 years.
