Asbestos removal expert Clarke’s Environmental has made changes at its Glasgow office to drive forward its ambitious growth plans in the thriving Scottish market.

The developments, which follow the company’s acquisition Angus Asbestos, also based in the city, include promoting director Graham Patterson to director of operations, Scotland.

As a project consultant and site agent for asbestos services and removal, Graham has delivered programmes including the multi-million pound Moss Heights upgrade works in Glasgow, which saw major improvements to 12 multi-storey blocks.

Graham Patterson said: “Clarke’s Environmental continues to go from strength to strength with existing and new clients including procurement organisation Scotland Excel – and I look forward to realising our business goals with an experienced team.”

Rachel McKenzie will support Graham and the team as office manager as part of the expansion drive for the business which has nine teams of asbestos removal experts.

Apart from demolition companies, Clarke’s clients include blue chip companies, local authorities, the Ministry of Defence, police forces and prisons, as well as domestic customers.

Managing director Richard Clarke said: “We launched in 2006 following concerns regarding falling standards within the asbestos removal industry.

“These key appointments reinforce our credentials and underpin the drive to establish ourselves as a prominent player here.”
