Grampian Continental secures £1.4 million funding from RBS
Aberdeen-based global logistics firm Grampian Continental is on the move to a new HQ, thanks to a £1.4 million funding boost from the Royal Bank of Scotland.
As one of the UK’s leading haulage companies, Grampian Continental operates across the globe with hubs in Italy, the Netherlands, and Great Yarmouth, and specialises in the transportation of renewable energy products.
The firm has trebled the size of its site after purchasing a 4.5-acre plot in the Altens area of the city, allowing additional space for its 105-strong fleet as the company continues to expand and drive forward a new business pipeline.
Founded in 2009, Grampian Continental employs 150 staff across operational, warehouse and driver roles, and hopes to expand the team by three over the next 12 months. Trusted by hundreds of customers across the globe, the firm works predominantly across the oil and gas and renewables sectors.
Neil Bremnar, finance director at Grampian Continental, said: “We’re really excited to move into our new premises after what has been a challenging 12 months for both Grampian Continental and many of our customers, particularly those in the oil and gas sector.
“Despite a turbulent period, we’re looking forward to working towards business objectives that are set to drive a buoyant level of new opportunities both here in Scotland and internationally. Our modern fleet ranges from rapid response vans to vehicles capable of moving 150 ton of material, so we’re an attractive choice for numerous jobs.
“The trusted support and advice from Royal Bank of Scotland has enabled us to embark on our next chapter with confidence as we continue to provide a first-class service to clients.”
David Snell, senior relationship manager at RBS, added: “It’s great to see Neil and his team relocate to a larger site that matches their operational demand. We wish them the very best for the future as they operate with confidence thanks to the financial backing from Royal Bank of Scotland.”
